Food Trip Friday 037: Khmer yellow curry at ang bahaw…bow!

For some reason I wasn’t really impressed at the curry my husband ordered at Hagar Restaurant several nights ago:

Seeing the unusual rice shape, I thought to myself, “ngiii, bahaw (cold, left-over rice)!” Di ba ganito ang itsura ng bahaw na naiwan sa kalan? Not that I dislike bahaw, or tutong (burnt rice crust), for that matter. In fact, ako ay laki sa bahaw (I grew up eating bahaw)! I was just surprised why a restaurant would serve rice in this manner,  but the husband assured me it’s not bahaw.
