CAMBODIA

In case you can’t tell by our selections below, Khmer food was our least favorite cuisine. We found the food in Cambodia to essentially be subpar Thai food so we tended to explore other cuisines during our time there.

  1. Interesting. I am a Thai Food addict and the food we have eaten in Thailand has only been run close by the steaks in Argentina/South America. But we loved Cambodian food too…particularly Fish Amok which we had once out in the sticks. I found that Khmer food benefits from being less spicy and thus the delicate flavours seem to shine through. That said I would take the Red Thai Curry with Pad Thai and Sticky Rice every time 🙂

    • Funny that you mention steaks in Argentina – Brian is counting down the days until he gets to try one! Your point about the tasting more of the flavors with Khmer food vs. Thai food is a great one. For us, we really enjoyed the spicy flavors incorporated into Thai food so there was a big “spicy” void when we got to Cambodia. Unfortunately, we didn’t try Fish Amok but it sounds delicious!

  2. Wow here is the answer to my weight problem! All I need to do is spend two months in Southeast Asia and I will be back down to what I weighed in 1989! Bon appetit to you but not to me! Love ya! Aunt Suzanne

  3. If you go to Buenos Aires I highly recommend the restaurant Don Ernesto in San Telmo. It’s nothing flash but the steaks, and the ambience , are fantastic. Just don’t go too early…evenings don’t get started until late in BA, as we discovered after 2 nights sat in empty restaurants!
