    Third morning in Siem Reap, we took the hotel tuk-tuk to visit Lolei, Bakheng and Tonle Sap. Aaahh..we went to many restaurants but they were closed during Khmer New Year and we end up in a local eating shop, quite a pack of people having breakfast there. Must be good, I already see what the local people are having and I decided to have a bowl of pork porridge and ice black coffee and I am so lucky I have the last bowl of pork porridge while my friends still undecided what to eat..

    The pork porridge tasted very good, the rice cooked into smooth porridge and add in the minced pork, the liver, garnished with fried garlic, some sawtooth coriander leaves and thinly sliced young ginger , emmm..I had the porridge all for myself no sharing, so satisfied to my stomach and ending with cool ice coffee. yummy..

    Favorite Dish: Of course, the pork porridge, fried rice and noodles again, you can order the bread too.

    The yummy pork porridge just cost US$1 a bowl..

    Banteay Srey - eating stall: Khmer Fried Noodles

    Khmer fried noodles
    4 more images

    After the sunrise watching at Angkor Wat, next place to visit - Banteay Srey which took us about 45mins slow drive (40km perhour, that's my driving limit in my hometown :-)) my stomach already started growling - hungry. Can't find any eating place on the way to Banteay Srey, don't worry there are two rows of stalls, where you can find food to eat, drinks like coconut water, sugarcane juice, beer and souvenirs. You will find food, drinks and souvenirs dearer than other place in Siem Reap.

    So we found our first eating place, we ordered six plates of fried instant noodles with chicken meat, egg and lots of vegetables. I have some time to take pictures of the cook (who is smilling all the time) and learned something new in cooking Khmer fried noodles.. They have a menu, just choose what you want to eat..

    Fried instant noodles looks good and tasty. US$3.50 a plate.

    Favorite Dish: Khmer Fried Noodles Recipe

    A very simple method to fry noodles.
    In a kuali, add in water, a piece of instant noodles and cut vegetables like choysum, cabbage and carrot. Let it boil, when cooked, transfer the cooked noodles and vegetable in a sieve to drain off the extra water.

    In a clean kuali, add some cooking oil, chopped garlic and fry till aromatic, add in a beaten egg (fry into omelette and later cut them into pieces) Add in the sliced chicken meat, stir and add in seasoning like a lot of MSG, fish sauce, pepper, sugar a bit and lastly add in the cooked noodles and vegetable..stir and stir...and walla..ready to eat...

    Kuali - a chinese cooking wok.

    Our young Van driver took us here, seems to have a lot of tourists eating here during lunch. I guessed it must be good. Oh yes, the restaurant got air-condition, it was so hot and humid outside, and we were so hungry and tired after we finished visit Ta-Prohm temple.

    Favorite Dish: We were quite curious when we read the Menu for Fried Morning Glory, what kind of vegetable is that? Anyway, we ordered Fried Morning Glory which was Fried Kangkung / water spinach. The cheapest vegetable in Malaysia. Other dishes - Lemongrass sour soup, Fried Chicken with Cashew nuts, Green Mango Salad and white rice. For drinks we ordered Fresh Fruit Juice like Lemongrass Tea, Lemonade, Coconut shake, Pineapple shake, watermelon shake...wah..so nice to drink in this hot weather...emmmm...

    There are a few restaurants opposite the Angkor Wat, just crossed the road and you will find the restaurant. We were so hungry after a long tired walk in Angkor Wat, my leg got cramped after walking up and down the angkor wat and a need to visit the toilet. :-)))

    Favorite Dish: We ordered Fish Amok served in Coconut, loklak chicken, tofu and kalc. Simple Khmer dishes and yet very delicious..

    Food and drink for 6 person cost US$28. Not bad at all.

    I enjoyed my stay at Golden Temple Villa and I also enjoyed my meal in the Restaurant. Oh, the welcome drink of Lemonade and sweet roasted peanuts was wonderful. Well, this restaurant is also recommend by the Lonely Planet. The setting of the restaurant and garden very beautifully done.

    What a pity, the restaurant closed for the next two days for Khmer New Year Celebration. But free coffee, tea and banana still available everyday..

    Favorite Dish: This is my first and favourite Cambodian food, its very simple and delicious - Bai sach chrouk, or pork with rice, served with a side of pickled, slightly sweet cucumber, carrot and small chilies.

    There is a story behind this dish, Bai sach chrouk is usually served with broken rice, and these broken rice meant for chicken to eat. But this wicked and evil stepmother forced her stepdaughter to eat leafover food and broken rice. One day an old lady came to the house and asked for food. Oh no, the evil stepmother chased away the old lady, and the kind hearted stepdaughter offered to share her meal of broken rice with the old lady, wahhh.. the old lady turned out to be a handsome prince in disguise, searching for a wife. Hmmm... anyone prince in disguise want to share my meal of Bai sach chrouk, please come forward :-))))

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a strange building on Sivatha Street with floors on different levels, with low tables and cushions. You even pass by a pool full of crocodiles on the way to the toilet. the food is excellent here and there are Aspara Dance performances on a small stage too. Even if you don't eat hre just pass by and take a look at the place.

    VIVA RESTAURANT: SURPRISE, SURPRISE-MEXICAN FOOD

    by davidjo Written May 21, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I discovered this restaurant by chance as i had to find a toilet very quickly indeed, so after rushing in i decided to have a drink, perused the menu and ordered tortillas and burritos. When i lived in the USA we frequented many Mexican Restaurants but the food here was the best i ever ate and came back twice more and can recommend the Steak Chimichaga and the pizzas, all served at a very reasonable price.

    Father's Restaurant: Best Amok in town? You be the judge

    by BorneoGrrl Written Sep 1, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Amok
    1 more image

    Father's Restaurant is a great place to try out the Khmer cuisine because there is a variety of local favorites and more available at affordable prices. It's located at the Central Market, in an open air food court. "Father" will recommend you some of the favorite dishes and cook them fresh for you. His "amok" dish is touted as the best in Siem Reap.

    There's an impressive website set up to promote Father's restaurant and you can decide on what you want. There's also western & Chinese dishes but when in Cambodia ......

    Pro :
    Good inexpensive food
    Friendly service
    Free wifi

    Con:
    Since it's open air, the stifling weather did bother me a bit while eating spicy foods

    Favorite Dish: I'm salivating just thinking about it but my favorites have to be the Amok and Khmer red curry, washed down with fresh fruit juices.

    Pho Bo or Vietnamese beef noodles
    1 more image

    Soup Dragon serves mostly Vietnamese cuisine for breakfast till late, so whenever you need a Pho (Vietnamese noodles in a clear refreshing broth) fix, drop by and order from a variety of noodles served with either chicken or beef. I had breakfast here and ordered the Pho Bo special, noodles in beef broth with beef balls, briskets, tripe and all sorts of goodies.

    In the evening, you can chill out on one their 3 floors and watch people go by. There's also free wifi and some travel information at the restaurant.

    Inexpensive food & drinks, including beer, located conveniently at the corner of Pub Street & Hospital Street.

    The Blue Pumpkin: Trendy & cool place for desserts & wifi

    The cool lounge upstairs
    3 more images

    The Blue Pumpkin is a franchise located at several locations in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. The one I went to is located near the Old Market. It stands apart from other coffee & desserts outlets because it has this "all white" modern look to it. They also serve breakfast, sandwiches and burgers when you've had your fill of amok & curry.

    There are 2 floors, downstairs selling all sorts of delicious pastries and ice-cream and then there's upstairs where the "Cool Lounge" is. The Cool Lounge, reminiscent of a Miami-esq club, is where you can escape the heat to an air-conditioned room with long sofa or beds, to have some ice-cream while surfing the net.

    Opens 06:00-22:00 everyday

    Favorite Dish: The chocolate ice-cream with liquor is so yummy on a hot day

    Il Forno: As good as in Italy

    Il Forno restaurant interior
    2 more images

    I came here twice in 3 days, nuff said :)

    Situated in a small lane off Pub Street, this little restaurant packs a mighty culinary punch from a simple menu and authentic Italian food. The decor is equally simple, predominantly in blue & white, lending a Mediterranean feel to it. White table & chairs fit tightly along the lane while a couple more share a small space with the counter and pizza oven. It's also open air so there's no air-conditioning if you want to escape the heat & humidity of Siem Reap. Nevertheless, the food & service is enough to make you forget about it.

    The menu is simple, offering a range of delicious pastas, pizzas and other traditional Italian fare. There is also a wine selection and I opted for white wine instead due to the stifling weather during my stay. The prices are on the high side for Cambodians but inexpensive for Italy. However, the prices are justifiable due to imported & quality ingredients. Definitely worth returning to.

    Opening hours: 12noon to 11pm

    Favorite Dish: I had delicious bruschetta & prosciutto pizza.
