Food

              

When it comes to the food in Cambodia, there is something to suit every taste and budget. Cheap and cheerful restaurants in touristy areas serve everything from fried rice and noodles to burgers and spaghetti. The cheapest option is to do what the locals do; grab a dish of fried rice or noodles from a roadside vendor for $1-2 and wash it down with a 50-cent can of Angkor beer (or three). Fresh local fruit is also cheap and widely available. A mango, fresh coconut, pineapple, dragon fruit or handful of bananas from a market or roadside vendor costs $1 or less.

Local Dishes

Some local dishes to look out for are

  • Borbor, a rice porridge served for breakfast (with or without liver or dried fish)
  • Prahok, a pungent dip made from fermented fish
  • Lok Lak, a dish of grilled beef with onion, tomatoes and served with green Kampot peppercorns.
  • The adventurous can also sample spiders, fire ants, crickets, silk worm cocoons, and fertilized duck eggs boiled with the embryo inside.

Western Food Options

If the adventure gets a little much, retreat to one of the abundant coffee shops to enjoy sweet treats and all kinds of fancy coffee or milky tea concoctions; or head for expat haunts for pub grub favourites.
