Yeti Eats: Cambodia

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We had a love/ate relationship with the food in Cambodia.  (We loved it and we ate a lot of it).

Talking to other travelers, we weren’t sure what to expect.  Some swore by it; others said it was the worst in SE Asia.  As always was the case, we just had to find out for ourselves. Luckily, we weren’t disappointed.

The food blew us away, in fact.  From roadside rice treats and drinking coconuts, to fruit stands and delicious fried rice dishes, to the international delights of Pub Street in Siem Reap, it was always amazing.  In particular Chamkar –a vegetarian restaurant in SR–had some of the best food we’ve ever had.

Enjoy the pictures and let us know where you stand on the deliciousness (or not) of Cambodian food.

  3. Oh, I’m so happy that y’all went to Chamkar! That was our favorite restaurant in Siem Reap. Did you make it to Romdeng or Friends in Phnom Penh? Those were fabulous, as well. Love Cambodian food.

    • Chamkar was so good; it’s cool to hear that others liked it too (it was empty the night we were there). Our trip ended up being shorter than we originally planned, so much so that we didn’t even make it to Phnom Penh. (Our of places we didn’t make it to but want to see next time is pretty comprehensive).
