Top Ten Khmer Foods: #3 Lot Cha

3) Lot Cha
These noodles are a breakfast favorite at the market, but they're really delicious any time of day. Their unique shape, which on first glance look unsettlingly close to short, squat worms, make for a firm, but chewy texture-party in your mouth, but it's the sauce that separates ok Loat Cha from heaven. The noodles are fried in a little bit of soy sauce, oyster sauce + other mystery liquid goodness with sprouts, green veg, and your choice of egg and meat. But the real flavor comes from the sweet and spicy, extra-garlicky sauce that's served alongside. I like to eat mine loaded down with extra chili.
