    FCC (Foreign Correspondent Club): Food with a view

    by shrimp56 Written Dec 22, 2003

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The place where everyone ex-pat ends up sooner or later. The second floor restaurant is very colonial -- you feel you should be calling your editor for a breaking story -- but the drinks look too good :-D

    Favorite Dish: I confess I was rice-and-spiced out. My companion and I shared a delightful thin crispy-crusted pizza with no complaints ;)

    Foreign Correspondants Club of Cambodia: FCCC

    Here's the view of the junction of the Mekong and the Tonle Sap from the balcony of the FCCC(Foreign Correspondants Club of Cambodia). This is probably the best known bar/restaurant in Phnom Penh and is a good place just to sit back and watch life along the riverbank while sipping on a cold beer or iced tea.

    FCC (Foreign Correspondent Club): A Must!

    by bartman_9 Written Jun 10, 2003

    No visit to Phnom Penh is complete without at least one stop in the FCC. Great food, cool drinks in a setting that takes you back to French colonial times. As you sip your beer and browse through the international papers you half expect Graham Greene to walk in, taking a break from writing one of his novels.

    Foreign Correspondents Club: Foreign Correspondents Club

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    French colonial gone to seed, situated on the first floor. Everything reeks of pre 1953 and the French/Cambodian equivalent of the British and the Raj. But not in an opulent, stuffu way. More like most things were simply left behind and little has changed. Large wooden fans, comfy old leather/wood chairs, low coffee tables, high stools at the bar and at the open balcony overlooking the road and the river (although a couple of the back rooms have bene converted into a very attractive restaurant). You could 'feel' the foreign journalists covering the 1953 and Vietnam Wars.

    Favorite Dish: Food not bad at all but it is the atmosphere you really go for

    FCC (Foreign Correspondent Club): Lovely Archtecture

    by pmarshuk Updated Apr 28, 2005

    This is the Foreign Correspondents Club on the banks of the Tonle Sap. A great example of French Colonial Architecture
