Everyday Exotic, shares his delicious adventures and notes from
across the globe. We'll be rolling them out every Wednesday, so be
sure to check back to find out where Roger's food adventures takes
him to next.
The second city we hit in Cambodia was
Battambang, which is a rural city that is somewhat
of a tourist retreat. It's a little bit out there, but once you get
there it's loaded with all kinds of tasty discoveries.
This was the first place we had a chance to sit down and enjoy a
wide variety of Khmer dishes. Our local aficionado
ordered for us and this restaurant was filled with locals, which is
always a good sign. As we sat down, about twenty different dishes
hit the table with all kinds of amazing flavours. Fish, pork, beef,
eggplant, chicken, soups, rice and loads of veggies loaded the
table. All of the dishes were fresh and vibrant and made with
plenty of spices and herbs.
Everything is eaten with rice and some type of broth to wet the
rice and compliment all the dishes along with an array of local
herbs. So many good food memories from Cambodia began starting with
this meal in Battambang.
