An American dream

Our Story

  • Calling America "Home"

    Sarun and Sopheang never imagined that their lives would take such a tragic turn. When the Khmer Rouge took control of their home country of Cambodia, they began systematically killing anyone who dared to oppose them. Fearing for their lives, Sarun and Sopheang fled into refugee camps, living in constant fear of being discovered. It was only through luck and perseverance that they were eventually able to come to the United States as refugees. They had lost everything – their home, their family, their friends – but they were alive. Their children grew up hearing their parents' stories of terror and loss. The eldest son enlisted in the Marines as soon as he was old enough, and now, after years of hard work and dedication, he runs the family business.

  • Khmer cuisine

    One of the world's oldest living cuisines, Cambodia is renowned for its elegant and understated use of spice. With an emphasis on simplicity with freshness seasonality as well as regionalism-Cambodian food has won praise from around the globe!
