Wearing a stylish dress, and holding a plate of food with beaming smile, Phuong Sopheadary, the youngest of four siblings, jokingly says she was always teased growing up that “the youngest child doesn’t do anything, especially housework and cooking”.
Sopheadary says this was one small reason that motivated her to open her own restaurant named Ptas Bay Kon Pov (literally translating as Youngest Child’s Kitchen).
But the architecture graduate’s main motivation was her desire to look after her parents and improve the selection of restaurants available in Battambang town.
