Phnom Penh – Tasty Cambodian dishes

In the heart of Chinatown, this family run restaurant is putting out dish after dish of Cambodian and Vietnamese favourites. The menu is filled with noodles, both dry and in soup, rice dishes, and classic Vietnamese dishes. If you’re feeling adventurous, there are even a few unusual dishes like frog legs.

With such an extensive menu, trying to decide what to order can be a hard decision. Dishes I recommend include the deep fried chicken wings, butter beef, and filet beef luc luc with egg. The chicken wings are an addicting combination of crunchy, savoury and juicy flavour. Be sure to dip them in the sauce that accompanies the dish and definitely order the large plate because they’re just that good. The equally delicious butter beef may turn some away as it’s medium rare beef topped with cilantro, garlic and a tangy sauce. If that doesn’t scare you then definitely order it!

Because they don’t take reservations for groups of six or smaller, be prepared to wait. If you don’t mind sharing a table, you can likely get seated faster. However, going to Phnom Penh with a group is a great way to taste a variety of dishes. The atmosphere is no nonsense which adds to the charm of this hole in the wall.
