Who We Are
Chef Mongkol and his wife had a dream.
They imagined being able to present fresh, new opportunities to young disadvantaged Cambodians.
Creating a sustainable path for those unable to afford a professional education became their first priority. He built an environment where experienced mentors can teach students English, train them for a career in the hospitality industry, and guide young Cambodians towards a brighter future.
Changkran Khmer came to life through Chef Mongkol’s love for traditional Khmer cuisine and his drive to serve the less fortunate around him. His passion shaped the restaurant into a training center for young Cambodians.
Changkran Khmer teaches eager students to send guests on a culinary journey through traditional Khmer tastes and flavors.
