Food Lover's Guide to Phnom Penh

Food Lover's Guide to Phnom Penh

While Southeast Asian influence is evident in dishes in Phnom Penh, many Khmer recipes pre-date the chili’s popularity. As a result, food here is milder than that of neighboring Thailand, making the city an ideal gateway to the rest of the region’s cuisine. Here are some of the best foods and food-related experiences in Phnom Penh.

Must-Try Dishes

As in many Southeast Asian countries, breakfast in Cambodia is typically a savory affair. Start your day with an early morning bowl of***nom banh chok***, a dish of rice noodles in a savory broth with bean sprouts, banana flowers, cucumbers, green onions, mint, and basil.

If you only have time to try one Khmer dish in Phnom Penh, make itfishamok, mild white fish cooked in a rich and creamy curry and steamed in a banana leaf bowl. Milder but just as flavorful as its Thai counterpart, Khmer curry is often made with chicken, coconut cream, and diced sweet potatoes served over rice or a baguette. Those who prefer red meat can samplebò lúc lắc***, stir-fried beef seasoned withKampot pepperon a bed of fresh vegetables. No matter what you order, be sure to try it with a dollop of**prahok***, a favorite Cambodian condiment of fermented fish paste.

Must-Do Experiences

Embark on a tasting tour of Phnom Penh’s best street food from the stalls of Phsar Kandal and Phsar Chas markets.

Sip coffee in the city’s old French quarter.

Get a feel for how local chefs shop with a guided visit to Phnom Penh’s famous Central Market and Russian Market.

Discover the secrets of Khmer cooking during a hands-on class led by a local chef.

Hop aboard atuk tuk for an evening of food and craft-beer tasting.

Learn how Cambodian beer is made during a tour of the Kingdom Breweries facility, sampling various beers and ciders along the way.
