The habit of sharing plates

At restaurants in Siem Reap, Cambodia fine dining does not mean a structured progression of dishes like in the Western culture. It’s more of a family dining style where the main meal comprises of a variety of dishes and the plates are to be shared among the members dining.

Cooking with fire

During your visit to Cambodia, go to Chi Restaurant & Bar and you may be surprised to witness their habit of cooking with fire. Barbequed fish and grilled meat will catch your taste buds over there because unlike those at Thai streets, you may find a different and unique taste in them.

Fermentation is quite popular

From fruits and vegetables to seafood and fish, Cambodians ferment them all! This is how they make their most popular ‘prahok’ dish, which is known to be cheese by the locals, but which smells more like fish than cheese!

 Flowers are edible in meals

Flowers are normally used on top of dishes to add a decorative effect to the meal. But Cambodian cuisine has edible flowers in its meals! They eat flowers raw and in cooked form too! An interesting fact indeed!
