Sakura Recycle Shop is one of the biggest second hand chains in Phnom Penh, they have five different stores in Phnom Penh and one in Siem Reap. Their shop on Street 271 is probably their biggest shop and it even has a special furniture department. Sakura import all their second hand products from Japan and their shop is nice and organized.

The place is swamped with a random selection of used stuff and at times it can be hard to see the good stuff, but if you have time and you are looking for a bargain then this is a great place.

Chinese Noodles House

Chinese Noodles or Zhong Guo La Mian (中国拉面), as it is called in Chinese, is a typical simple Chinese noodle place with the fluorescent lightning and small tables but they serve some of the best hand made noodles (la mian, 拉面) you can find in Phnom Penh and they also have a small selection of other Chinese  dishes. It is a perfect restaurant for Chinese expats looking for the taste of home, or anyone who want to try authentic Chinese food for a reasonable price.

Some of their specialties are the pork and chive dumplings that you can get either steamed or fried, and of course their hand made noodle soups.
