Island Soup and Grill Seafood opens 

From shrimp to squid, string-ray, crabs, oysters and clams, Island Soup and Grill Seafood is embracing all the sea has to offer. Set on Street 184, the cozy restaurant is crisp and clean, featuring classy wooden tables and cheerful striped walls. Beers cost from $1 and glasses of house wine from $2.75, but it’s the seafood that takes centre stage. Try the special squid soup ($7) or, for non sea-lovers, the phnom plerng (volcano mountain) grill with beef for $5.50. New customers in January will recieve a loyalty card, valid until June, entitling them to a 10 percent discount on future visits.
