Khmer cuisine  is another name for the foods and cuisine widely consumed in Cambodia which shares much in common with the food of neighboring Thailand, although it is generally not as spicy; and Vietnam with whom it shares and adopts many common dishes.  The food of Cambodia includes tropical fruits, rice, noodles, drinks, dessert and various soups.

Almost every meal includes a bowl of rice, although noodles are also popular. A wide range of curries known as kari (in Khmer), soups and stir fries are served with rice.

The French baguette, which is often eaten with pâté, tinned sardines or eggs and a cup of strong coffee, sweetened with condensed milk, is an example of a common Cambodian breakfast.

Typically, Cambodians eat their meals with at least three or four separate dishes. A meal will usually include a soup, or samlor, served alongside the main courses. Each individual dish will be either sweet, sour, salty or bitter. Chili is served on the side, and left up to individual diners and to their taste.

In this way Cambodians ensure that they get a bit of every flavor to satisfy their palates.  See our Menu
