When I was in Cambodia I ate at many different places. I decided to venture off into other types of food rather than just traditional Khmer cuisine, because I wanted to see the Cambodian interpretation of other culture’s food. So I am sharing my food choices here with all of you lovely foodies out there!
Strangely enough, a lot of the places in Cambodia were random mixed cuisines. Just how sometimes in LA I’ll see…Chinese and Sushi, or Mexican and American cuisine under the same roof, this restaurant my husband and I decided to go to on Pub Street in Siem Reap had what they called Western, and Mexican.
So, in true lover-of-mexican-food fashion, I got fajitas!
They were actually really good! I did notice though, that they were very reminiscent of Indian food when it came to the flavors, but I didn’t mind because I LOVE Indian!
My husband decided to go with the sliders. I personally LOVE sliders, but he isn’t a huge fan so I’m not really sure why he ordered them! BUT, they were pretty tasty. I must also say that the service in Cambodia is quite amazing. They are patient, eager, and attentive. SO much better than these Los Angeles Servers. (I know, I’m one too)
Then we shared some italian shaved ice. I believe these flavors were mango and lemon. Pretty darn tasty! And presented so beautifully!
The following day we went to a place right across the street from the one above that had tons of people – mostly tourists – waiting for tables. Once we got a table, the first thing I ordered was a beer, of course, and fried spring rolls.
Not the most flattering picture, but it was HOT AND HUMID in Siem Reap!
Then our spring rolls got to the table with this interesting sauce. If my taste buds serve me right, it was vinegar, a dash of fish sauce, some sliced red thai chilies, and peanuts. Pretty good!
And that was that! Such a beautiful adventure for us. It was hot, but the food and drinks were good (and cheap)
