    Local food stalls in Angkor

    by SirRichard Written Mar 8, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you visit Angkor Temples you will surely be all day around the place, going from one temple to another. Going back to Siem Reap for lunch is not practical, as you will lose some precious time, so a good alternative is to have a light lunch in one of the many food stalls you will find around the temples.

    There are usually 3 or 4 together, offering practically the same, so just sit in the terrace of the 1st one and wait for the waiter to come and show you the menu.

    Is a good place to enjoy a delicious green coconut juice in the middle of the journey!

    The Blue Pumpkin: Mouth watering treats!

    by DrunkenTraveller Written Apr 21, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many branches of the Blue Pumpkin. We visited it once in Siam reap - after a long morning of visiting the temples and once in Phnom Penh. They have everything from Fresh Berry Smoothies to Waffles and pastries. Drowning in choices, i ordered two items. The Ham and cheese Quiche and the Cheese toast. Oh gosh im craving for those right now! The taste was just right and they are very generous with portions. They also have a gift / souvenier shop at the Siam reap branch, where tourists can buy their very own miniature Angkor Wat or other cultural souveniers. But quite pricey. The food however, was great value for money.

    At the Phnom Penh branch, we enjoyed rocky road icecream and pasta. The ambiance of the phnom Penh branch is much more relaxed and casual than the Siam reap one. They have unique "Bed like" couches all arund the upper floor, where you can put your feet up and work on your laptop until your food arrives. The Food is kept on a "Breakfast in bead" kinda tray so its easy to feel at home :) Check out the site for a clearer image of this.

    The website however needs a revamp since only the contact details and locations are currently listed. This place is a MUST if you ever visit Cambodia.

    Favorite Dish: Ham and chese Quiche - Filled with mouth watering cheese and ham. Simply heavenly. Easily the best Quiche ive ever tasted.

    You pick em: Beach cafes offer more than just good food

    by richiecdisc Updated May 15, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cambodian dining takes a decided backseat to neighboring Thailand and Vietnam, but there are some interesting dishes to try just the same. Phnom Penh offers the best variety and though you run the risk of getting some belly aches in the process, the adventurous will be rewarded for their efforts. The Cambodians also dish up their share of Western dishes with varying degrees of success. Hey, you can’t blame them for trying and many tourists find comfort in eating something familiar in places so far from home. Still, market food should be tried and local dishes sought out to truly savor the flavor of Cambodia. A nice in between are the beach cafes in Sihanoukville, on the southeast coast.

    Favorite Dish: You can get heaping plates of noodles with local shrimp for a pittance compared to back home, though perhaps a bit overpriced by local standards. But you are on the beach, and that carries a premium everywhere in the world. Wash it down with a nice frosty Angkor beer and life becomes grander with each moment.

    Green coconuts

    by SirRichard Written Mar 8, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the best ways to calm your thirst in Cambodia is drinking those huge green coconuts that you will find in many street food stalls, specially around the main tourist attractions. They open them just for you with a huge knife and you drink it with a straw. When you finish drinking the water, you can ask the vendor to cut it in 2 and you can eat the "flesh" with a spoon... delicious!!

    Bopha Angkor Hotel Restaurant: Don't miss the Hot Pot!

    by Homanded Written Jul 24, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The owner of this establishment owns several other hotels/restaurants throughout Germany.
    Of Cambodian nationality, he is married to a German wife and is currently splitting his time between Germany and Cambodia.
    The gracious owner has made personalized service an art form and makes sure his employees attend to the finest of details from pouring of wine/beer to the way in which food is presented.
    The Ambiance is authentic, beautiful and quite relaxed while at same time offering a sense of higher class .
    You may also choose to sit in the beautifully landscaped courtyard for drinks. breakfast or lunch.

    Favorite Dish: Try the "Hot Pot". A stew pot which is brought sizzling hot to your table containing a flavorful stew of chicken or beef, local vegetables and spices. Accompanied with rice, truly delicious. We also ordered a fresh catch of the day (equally good) but realized the hot pot would've been sufficient for the two of us.

    Heng Lim Restaurant: Chinese Restaurant in Battambang

    by bkoon Written Feb 22, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Heng Lim Resaturant is situated opposite where I stayed, the Chhaya Hotel. Heng Lim serves delicious Chinese-Khmer food. The restuarant is Chinese-run. I had a hearty lunch there for only USD$2.00. They do have an English menu. Heng Lim opens as early as 6am in the morning and early patrons usually have their black coffee and "you tiao" there.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite dishes there are :
    - Sour Soup
    - Fried Beef

    My Belated Birthday Treat from Soo Wee

    We had lunch here. It was a heavy lunch. The portions were huge and we shared the dishes and ate them with rice.

    The service was good too.

    Favorite Dish: Dish 1 : Chicken with Lemongrass & Basil
    Lemongrass was sliced into fine shallot-like pieces. Fried with chicken and lots of basil leaves. Delicious.

    Dish 2 : Coconut Milk Soup with Fish and Pineapple
    Sliced fish cooked with yellow ginger, coconut milk and pineapple. Also very delicious.

    Dish 3 : Sweet & Sour Pork
    Pork stir-fried with ketchup, pineapple and tomatoes.

    Rows of Eateries Outside Baphuon: Lousy but No Choice

    by bkoon Written Feb 15, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The food was lousy but we do not have a choice as we still needed to continue our tour. It was not feasible for us to get back to town to have our lunch and come back to Angkor area.

    Hence, I would suggest to you who will be travelling there to bing your own food.

    Koulen Restaurant: Siem Reap Buffet Dinner

    by bkoon Written Feb 15, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was a nice restaurant which served a wide buffet spread. Apsara Dance performances were staged for 1.5-2 hours. What I dislike about this restaurant was that at the entrance, when I asked for the price, they quoted USD5 but in the end, it turned out to be USD12. I remembered repeating myself a few times when he quoted such a low cost. The market rate was USD11 though at other restaurants.

    Note : Driver gets to eat for free. Do your driver a favour.

    Happy Herb: :) Happy Pizza!!!!

    by ngsway Updated Jan 13, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Happy herb sells pizza that is delicious but what makes this restaurant unique is something 'extra' that they add to the pizza.... When you placed any order for a pizza, they will ask you if you want it 'HAPPY' or 'VERY HAPPY'. This is to indicate if you want 'hash' to be added and the amount you want. For those who is adventurous, a slice of 'HAPPY' pizza will make you kind of like 'drunk'.... drowsy but happy definately.

    Anyway, those normal pizza without additional ingrediants, are very delicious too.

    Favorite Dish: You must try their Hawaian pizza. Combination of ham and pineapple is simply mouthwatering.

    Smokin' Pot: Smokin' pot in Battambang

    by AndreSTGT Updated May 29, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    No! Sorry, despite the name this a not a Khmer-style Coffee Shop, but a very good restaurant in Battambang. I liked the food so much that i even had my birthday dinner here.
    They call themselves 'Thai Cambodian Cookery School and Restaurant', unfortunately we didn't have the time to take a course there, but it's certainly worth it, the standard of the cuisine is quite high.

    Favorite Dish: 'Sizzling Volcano' : Cambodian beef BBQ. According to the manager i was the first guest ever who ordered this dish. That's strange, even though it's the most expensive item on the menu (2,50$) it's great value. You get enough beef for two and the meat is lean and tender.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    FCC of Phnom Penh is situated at Sisowath Quay at the riverfront. A multi-story high, french colonial building which its top floor placed, its bar and restaurant. This is the must go place to have a drink, sitting at its open balcony while watching sunset. The place is warmly decorated, with soft music creating a relaxing ambiance... I didn't have any meal here but many people recomment the wonderful meals that is served here.

    Favorite Dish: The cocktail 'Angkor's sunset' and also the cheap but nice Angkor draught beer....

    Amok is a fish curry dish, typical from cambodia. It is served with plain rice.
    I had it in a restaurant called AMOK in Phnom Penh, where it is an speciality. They serve many variations. It comes inside a coconut shell here.

    Lunch stop at Sisophon

    by SirRichard Updated Sep 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the way to Siem Reap I stopped at Sisophon to change pick ups. As it was about lunch time, I went into a road restaurant by the bus station.
    I thought they would be used to tourists, as most of the pick ups stop here. But I guess people just stay here the minimum to change cars and head the quickest possible to Siem Reap.
    As I entered the place, the people there started looking at me and gossiping. The menu was, obviously, in cambodian, so I just pointed to the dish of the table behind me, which happened to be a delicious rice with veggies... and an Angkor Beer, of course!
