Five Birdhouses - Homes for the unexpected
Every morning between 07:00 till 09:00, the working men and women of Cambodians gather and congregate in various noodle houses to have their morning routine - Kuy Teav - a rice noodle soup with minced meat and various other toppings and seasonings.
Ever since industrialisation, our habits of life and work has tremendously changed. It requires a workforce in certain hours of the day to be actively dedicated to work. If the shift from an agricultural society to a modern society took the domestic ritual of breakfast out of home, then Kuy Teav would be one of the most emblematic dish of this social phenomonon.
