Nite Yun, a West Oakland resident and a daughter of Cambodian refugees, started Nyum Bai as an occasional pop-up, and now it's a semipermanent food stall in Emeryville’s revamped Public Market food court. In the Khmer language, “Nyum Bai” translates to “eat rice” (or, less literally, “let’s eat”), but the restaurant’s main attractions are its noodle dishes — in particular, the noodle soup known as kuy teav (aka kuy tio), or, as it’s listed on the menu, “Phnom Penh Noodle Soup,” which to our knowledge isn’t sold at any of the handful of other Cambodian restaurants in the East Bay.
