What we ate in… Cambodia!

To be honest, my travel buddies and I were quite burnt out on Asian food in general by the time we made it to Cambodia, so it took us until our last city, Siem Reap, to actually eat Khmer cuisine.

In Phnom Penh, we dined on sushi for one meal and it was amazing!

We also had some late night homemade, wood fire grilled pizza on the street that was fantastic. Unfortunately, we were so hungry since we hadn’t eaten a meal all day that we forgot to take pics of the food!

Qamile and I waiting patiently for the pizza!

Before the fast boat to the island, Koh Rong Samloem, we ate at a delicious Lebanese place and shared dips and falafal.

On the island, we ate anything from fish we caught, to fish and chips, to chicken sandwiches, stuffed bell peppers, pasta and curries!

On the island we did try a new fruit called snakefruit…the outside peel looks like snakeskin and inside is tart and delicious!

Once in Siem Reap, we found an adorable and cheap, highly rated restaurant called My Little Cafe and we ate here several times!

The national dish, Lok Lak – so good I had it two times!!

Massaman beef curry

Special Khmer Amok with chicken…amazing!

One dinner we had Happy Pizza and some other Khmer noodle and rice dishes and all shared!

The two beers we drank here in Cambodia were called Cambodia and Klang and both were light beers and refreshing!

First Klang of the trip!

The food here was absolutely delicious and I can’t wait to have it again someday!
