First Fast Food Eatery Opens

The McSam Restaurant is set to open in early December giving Cambodia its first fast

food eatery. Owner Sam Oum, who also owns the International House, says McSam will

serve "typical fast food from America such as burgers, chicken nuggets, tacos,

onion rings, french fries, and ice cream."

The restaurant will also serve breakfast with pancakes, eggs (any style), coffee,

and rolls on the menu. Doors will open at 6:30 a.m. and close at 10 p.m.

Located across the street from the main post office, McSam also has a supermarket

which opened Nov. 28 and carries imported foodstuffs, books, magazines, toiletries,

and Christmas gifts, as well as "I Love You Cambodia" tee-shirts.

Sam Oum says he also has plans to open a second branch of McSam in Phnom Penh in

the near future. As for other branches Sam says, "We're thinking about opening

one in Siem Reap but that depends on what happens during the dry season."

McSam Restaurant & Supermarket is located at 20E-22E, Street 13.
