Khmer Food

In the past recipes for Khmer dishes were not recorded or written down; instead they were handed down from mother to daughter, generation to generation. What has evolved is a traditional cuisine of unsuspected delights: a unique blend of flavours that enhance the main ingredients.

Traditional spice blends combining many ingredients like cloves, cinnamon, star anise, nutmeg, cardamom, ginger and turmeric are blended by hand. Local herbs like galangal, garlic, shallots, lemongrass, cilantro, and kaffir lime leaves are added to these spices to make pastes such as the delicious and distinctly Cambodian “kreaung” paste.

A Khmer meal is a very social event; food is nearly always shared and enjoyed together with family members and friends in groups. A typical shared meal might include noodles, soups, grills, stir-fries, curries, salads, desserts, lots of vegetables, tropical fruits, and of course rice which is the staple food for all Cambodians.

Rice is part of every meal, either served alongside other dishes or incorporated into them. The selection can include sweet, sour, salty and bitter tastes in various combinations and at times all four flavours incorporated into one dish. Chili is usually served as a condiment to be added by the individual to their own taste and other accompaniments like pickled vegetables, fish sauce, soy sauce and various dipping sauces such as pepper lime dip, roasted red pepper dip and the spicy Koh Rong sauce will also be part of the rich tapestry of flavours.

Some words from our visitors

I've been in Asia for 3 weeks and this meal was certainly up there with the best of them. My choice of the sliced roast pork dish with crackling and side dishes was as juicy and tender as any pork I've had. My wife had a crab dish was was also very good. We had a bottle of Grant Burge wine to wash the meal down with, this was reasonably priced at $17.00 a bottle which is cheaper than you could buy it for in Australia where it came from. The service was excellent and the modern decor was very welcoming. I'd eat here again without any hesitation
Awesome restaurant, great food , delightful staff and great price . Looks classy we thought we would be paying a lot more !! Should visit this place.
J'ai été séduit par une publicité sur un magasine immobilier et je n'ai pas été déçu ! Très bel endroit avec une jolie décoration, beaucoup d'espace, il y a juste un peu trop de bruit de la route l'extérieur. Le service est très rapide, les plats très différents sont tout aussi bons et frais pour des tarifs plus que corrects.
