At a Cambodian restaurant in Lowell, perseverance is the main ingredient
Simply Khmer restaurant is on the scruffier side of the Spaghettiville Bridge in a neighborhood edged with cracked sidewalks and weed-tufted pavement. This is not the downtown Lowell of converted mills and cobblestone streets. It is a land of overpasses and alleys, of auto-body shops and vacant lots.
In recent years, an area of the city called “Little Cambodia’’ has emerged due to the large amount of Cambodian residents. In fact, Lowell is now home to one of the largest populations of Cambodians outside Cambodia, reports the Associated Press.
