Chez Sovan Restaurant Review: At this unassuming though pleasant sit-down Cambodian restaurant, start with the tender chicken sach ang, a tangy-sweet kebab that resembles satay. Catfish amok, a blend of fish and a coconut-based curry steamed in a banana leaf, is a specialty and shouldn’t be missed. We also like the chicken cha kroeung, a stir-fry flavored with an aromatic spice paste. Kuy tiew cha, sort of a Cambodian pad thai, has round noodles and more sauce than its Thai cousin. Vegetarians will find several options featuring tofu. Desserts range from ice cream to mango sticky rice. Many dishes are available in small and large sizes, but even the small portions are generous. Lunch specials are available on weekdays. The restaurant's more casual, original outpost is located at 923 Oakland Rd., San Jose.
