Killing Fields Café [LINK]

There's a new restaurant in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, called the "Khmer Rouge Experience Café" that is designed to remind diners of what life was like under Pol Pot. Waitresses dressed in military fatigues serve salted rice-water, corn with water and leaves, dove eggs, and tea. So far the offering has attracted a total of two foreign tourists, and managers are considering rebranding the establishment as a weight-loss alternative.

I have just come back from Cambodia. I was reading "a lucky child" during the trip. The restaurant you mentioned was unluckily not finded. I keep the question in mind: what the ex-sodilers are doing now? I ask my tutu driver, he said nothing...finally, he told us that his father was one of them...
