Cambodian Restaurant
$$
“Casual restaurant in Scotts Valley offering Cambodian/Thai cuisine with homemade taste. My favorite is the catfish Amok which is steamed in a packet made out of banana leaves. Curry chicken is mild and sweet with a hint of cinnamon. Grab a patio seating on a warmer evening.”

Restaurant
“A little restaurant that's easy to miss from the road, with seating for handful of people inside. I'm a vegetarian so I can't speak for their meat dishes, but their vegan options are excellent! Their roasted eggplant+falafel wrap is the work of a genius.”
