Restaurants in Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Phnom Penh offers an excellent selection of dining venues ranging from fine Khmer and French dining to American style bar & grills and budget noodle & rice shops. But the emphasis is of course on Khmer (Cambodian) food. Khmer cuisine shares many similarities with other Southeast Asian foods, including dishes such as curries, sates and fish-based meals, but Khmer cookery tends to be much more delicately spiced than other regional cuisines and is rarely spicy hot. Cambodian breakfast consists of noodle soup (kui-teo) or fried meat with rice and pickled vegetables and dinner is made up of courses of salads, a soup and a main dish with rice. Meats are served bite-size and the table is set with fork, spoon and chop sticks, but no knife. Perhaps the most popular first Khmer dish for foreigners is Amok, a yellow coconut curry, usually made with fish and traditionally cooked and served in a fresh coconut.
