Snaps: Barbecued eggs on wheels

Grilled eggs on wheels.

I snapped this photo of a grilled egg seller near Olympic Market in Phnom Penh when I was putting together a set of photographs of mobile street food vendors in Cambodia. Grilled eggs (pong ang) are a favorite Cambodian street food. The egg is mixed with salt, pepper and a bit of lime and stirred up in the shell and tossed on a mobile grill. Then the grilled egg man drives around all day playing a recording announcing that he’s selling barbecued eggs (and that they’re delicious). Sometimes, you’ll see a grilled egg man with family in tow, like in this photograph.
