Last look: North Korea in Phnom Penh

I wrote about this restaurant two months ago. I've been wanting to return every week now for the David Lynch-ian waitress dancing, singing and instrument playing that goes on here every night of the week. Basically, the waitress that has just brought you over your steaming meat soup, (or cabbage pancake if you're me), suddenly appears on stage playing synthesizer and singing all your favourite songs from the homeland.  Everyone is wearing candy coloured, highly flammable frills and perfectly maintained smiles.  I wish I could of filmed this for you, it's the most surreal scene I've ever seen, and all delivered with a sort of dead-eyed charm.
