Here are some pics from my first eating out experiences last year in Phnom Penh-first time in Cambodia and knowing nothing of the cuisine, culture, life or the people here!! So much has changed since then:-)
This could easily be a restaurant review if I could remember the name of the place I ate. The food was delicious!!
A traditional Khmer curry with chicken this time. A dish I’ve ate many times and love. Will at some point make it and put the recipe on my blog…..as with all of the dishes below too!!
Another dish from the same restaurant as above. It’s a river fish wrapped and fried in banana leaf with Khmer spices. The dish is called “Knopp” in Khmer!
This dish is called “Chien Chuan”. It’s fish cooked with ginger and soya beans amongst other spices! My first street food here. And loved it!!
This dish is called “Ban Chiew”. Another of my favourites I’ve had many times since being here. It’s a pancake made from rice flour (if I’ve understood correctly from my GF right now) egg and turmeric. It’s filled with a mince pork filling. And what I love most that is very common with many of their dishes is the delicious sauce and huge variety of unidentifiable leaves of very different tastes-some tangy and some even strangely fishy, that go with it!
Thank you very much for dropping by and I appreciate all of your comments. I wish you a beautiful day, a peaceful mind and a warm heart:-)
