Around lunch time when we were touring the Temple complex, we ate at this open restaurant just across Angkor Wat. I was expecting the food to be sub par since the tuktuk drivers took us there. It was surprisingly better than expected. This was the beef dish.
Sweet and sour chicken
The soup dish my brother ordered, we didn’t like. They have this leaf that they usually put in their dishes. The one in this was just overpowering. Maybe we’re just not used to the taste that’s why we find it a little bit offensive to our taste.
Blue Pumpkin is one of the coziest bakeries in Siem Reap because of the bed/chair concept. Too bad the main one on the Old Market area is being renovated at the time of our visit so we went to the one closer to our hotel. They have ice creams that have different exotic flavors and combination like durian, green mango and such.
One time we were going back to our hostel and we found this street vendor in wheels and decided to buy a few fish balls and crab sticks. They were yum! You get 4 sticks and vegetables with sauce for a dollar.
One night, we went on a street stall for dinner across the Angkor Night Market area. I think they used to be inside the park where they sold really good cheap food last time we visited but I saw it being renovated at the time. We had the stove in the middle and cooked our food.
We also tried their newly opened KFC. This wasn’t here on my previous visit. There was an ongoing promotion for 5500 or about a $1.35 for rice, soup, veggies, egg and chicken. I tried it and it was okay. My brother and cousins got the usual full meal.
We were really curious about the exotic meats we saw at the sign. So after eating that full meal, we all chipped in to get an order of it. We were actually deciding between crocodile meat or kangaroo meat. Haha.
