Grapefruit with green papaya and mussel is one of Khmer favorite appetizers *mahope sar*. Apple snail and Cherrystone is very good with this recipe also. It is one of the best Asian recipes in South East Asia. Cambodian people like  to prefer cooking this kind of food for serving their family and friends.
