Ysok Woodward

Ms Ysok (pronounced ‘E Soak’) Woodward currently lives in Offerton and has been registered with Harvey Silver Hodgkinson since 2015. Following a full refurbishment Ms Woodward plans on expanding her Angkor Soul Cambodian restaurant brand with an opening date of 1st June 2018.  We would like to wish Ysok all the very best with her new business.

Angkor Soul

Altrincham’s newest Cambodian restaurant will become only the second of its kind in the North of Britain (the first being their flagship site in Marple). The cuisine combines the flavors of neighboring Thailand and Vietnam alongside French colonial influences. Angkor Soul will offer a varied vegetarian and vegan menu.

Ysok honed her culinary skills and learned how to cook traditional Khmer cuisine in a Cambodian settlement in USA set up after the war. Upon meeting her husband (who has a passion for music and collecting vinyl) she moved to England and the combination of Cambodian cooking and vinyls begun.
