Pauls Brewe House opens in Phnom Penh
Within an immaculate display case, a splash of colour entices customers: pinks, reds, greens, yellows, and mouth-watering chocolate browns. Donuts! “I wanted to bring a taste of America to Cambodia,” CEO Paul Quach says — he has more than succeeded. Carrying 20 years of donut-making experience with him from California, Khmer-American Quach uses ingredients imported from the US to bake a delicious array of donuts, cinnamon rolls, cakes, muffins and other pastries (from $1). The menu also includes a range of hot and cold beverages (from $2), smoothies and freshly-squeezed juices (from $2.50), and American favourites such as hamburgers, sandwiches and pancakes (from $2.25). Unlike American donut shops, the décor at Pauls Brewe House is exquisite: earth tones, hardwood tables, exposed brick and comfortable chairs set within a converted two-storey air-conditioned villa. The outdoor seating areas are perfectly shaded, and a computer station provides free internet access for those who don’t want to lug around their laptops. Perfect for work, relaxing or families, Paul’s Brewe House has something for everyone.
