Exploring the Culture Through Food – An Insight into Cambodian Culture

Located in between two renowned culinary heavyweights, Thailand and Vietnam, Khmer cuisine makes a statement on its own. The local flavours you get to explore are unique and full of surprises. This journey of discovering the culture through Cambodian food isn’t to be missed.

 

Amok

Commonly referred to as the emblem of Cambodian food, amok is the national dish of Cambodia. There are various versions of amok, however, fish amok is the most popular! Found easily in almost all restaurants in Siem Reap, this delicacy is a creamy and rich curry like sauce made from Chinese ginger, turmeric root, garlic, shallots and lemongrass, served with a side of rice.

 

Lap Khmer

This dish is a lime marinated beef salad. The thinly sliced pieces of beef are either cooked or seared and dressed with lemongrass, shallots, fish sauce and topped with chillies!

 

Kdam Chea

Fried crab is what this dish is, famous in the seaside town of Kep. It’s worth visiting this seaside town just for this dish, however, restaurants such as Chi Restaurant & Bar serve similar amazing seafood dishes if you cannot travel all the way!

 

Cha Houy Teuk

A jelly dessert that’s a favourite among the locals; bright coloured jelly, combined with sago, coconut cream and bleached mung beans, this dessert is served with shaved ice!

 

Kuyteav

A breakfast speciality that rises above the rest; Kuyteay. A tasty broth made from pork bones with vermicelli on top along with a few vegetables and garnish, kuyteav isn’t your usual breakfast! Make sure you savour this during your trip to Cambodia.
