Cambodian food in the Upper Valley? Look for the Phnom Penh Sandwich Station truck at Lebanon’s Colburn Park at lunchtime and at Hanover’s Dartmouth Green in the evenings. Lay Yi and Sarin Tin are cooking up new delectable foods for the Upper Valley, and this native Cambodian family specializes in their homeland’s authentic cuisine. It’s made fresh by the couple, with Sarin’s father, Sreang, stepping in at the grill.

Start with an appetizer of spring rolls with beef, cabbage, carrots, and vermicelli noodles served with their homemade sweet chili sauce. Or in the heat of the day, summer rolls with fresh lettuce, cucumber, basil leaves, carrots, and rice noodles served with sweet and sour sauce. The fried dumplings are a favorite starter or a meal.

The sign on the side of the truck says Sandwich Station, and the Phnom Penh Sandwich is a favorite, with freshly baked bread and cucumber, cilantro, pickled carrots, chili mayo, and your choice of meat. Take time to read the menu on the side of the truck. You’ll find much more than the typical sandwich. Choose Pad Thai, another favorite, with a choice of shrimp, pork, beef, chicken, or grilled tofu. Finish your meal with Khmer crispy coconut cookies (Nom Tong Nuyen) or sweet sticky rice, coconut sauce, and banana.

Locals, tourists, and students are lining up for healthy, fresh, authentic Cambodian food, and it’s all delicious, according to the reviews. Lay Yi greets each customer with her engaging smile and helpful recommendations about what a newbie to Cambodian food should try.

The truck travels between the Lebanon and Hanover Greens Monday through Saturday. Days and hours at each location vary, but generally the Sandwich Station can be found parked at the Colburn Park in Lebanon from 11am to 3pm and at the Dartmouth Green in Hanover from 4 to 9pm. Check Facebook at Phnom Penh Sandwich Station NH for updates on the weekly schedule and special events.

The big news is that Phnom Penh will be at a new, permanent location at 1 High Street in Lebanon. This spot near downtown will be for takeout service. The plan is to open in late fall, and when it does, the takeout will replace the Lebanon food truck. The truck in Hanover will continue and be available throughout the day instead of evenings only. Stay tuned—more to follow on this new turn for the Sandwich Truck!

Find them on Facebook at Phnom Penh Sandwich Station NH.
