Whether you need a quick snack before your next meeting or a whole feast, Cambodia's Kitchen welcomes you with open arms and warm hospitality. With a simple menu, well priced for the city, you will enjoy warm hospitality in a clean and comfortable environment.
First I tried the street food starters, which you can have as an entrée or a quick snack on your way to your next event.
The donuts look like a Spanish churro but are savoury and you can use it like bread or a pretzel. The outside is crunchy and firm like a churro but the centre has the softness of a croissant. Delicious on its own or dunked into a dipping sauce or soup.
These little pockets of fried wonder are tasty prawn and pork fried wontons. They were so fresh and flavoursome and served with a light and sweet dipping sauce – I could eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The dipping sauces at Cambodia's Kitchen use an array of fresh and exciting ingredients - coriander, rice paddy herb, sweet basil, chilli, cardamon, cloves, star anise, cinnamon, lemongrass, ginger and kaffir lime.
If you are hungry, try the Signature Cambodian Fried Pork on Rice with light layers of egg omelette, beautifully marinated pork, and garnished with a light pork mince. It's tasty and served with pickled vegetables and a bowl of soup. Delicious!
However, the king of the menu is the stewed beef noodle soup with beef broth, tendon, tripe and homemade beef balls and your choice of noodles - fresh thin rice noodles, egg noodles, flat rice noodles or rice drop noodles. The broth is rich with hints of aniseed and the beef is melt in the mouth tender. A simple dish with complexity that takes hours to perfect - this is homestyle cooking at its best!
So on your next trip to the city, why not stop into Cambodia's Kitchen for a street snack or a feast, and feel the love of homestyle cooking and hospitality!
