Cambodia Cuisine and Food






Cambodian Food
Basically the local food in Cambodia is less spicy than Thai food. Although similar spices are used, such as coriander, lemongrass and mint, the Cambodians usually use them in salads. Many dishes in Cambodia have a sweet and sour taste, for example, the very popular Somla Machou Banle (fish soup with pineapple chunks).

For breakfast, the Cambodians usually have noodles, eggs or rice with sliced roast pork and a bowl of soup. Another popular item is Bo Bo (rice porridge made with chicken or prawns with thin ginger strips, mushrooms and spring onions).

Other Cambodian delicacies include Chong Roet (roasted cicadas), Khao Phoun (rice noodles in a coconut sauce), Somla Chapek (ginger-flavoured pork soup), Somla Machou Bangkang (spicy prawn soup), Trey Aing (grilled fish), Char Marteis (beef with green chillies) and Trey Chean Neung Spey (fish fried with vegetables). Pang Chaiv are pancakes filled with meat, beansprouts and spices, normally eaten with a selection of green vegetables and a peanut sauce.

Breads like croissants and baguettes are not the only French-influenced items on the menu; you are bound to come across such delights as cafe au lait, crepes suzette and soufflé in many restaurants. Fruit milk shakes(Teuk Kolo), fresh fruits (both local and imported) and ice-cream are popular desserts. A local specialty is the liquid from the sugar palm trees called Tek Tnot, which makes for a refreshing drink. Tea, beer or water is taken with meals. The local beer is Angkor, which is made and bottled in Sihanoukville.


Banchai
An ethnic cuisine from Cambodia, which makes for a nice, light meal. Served with vegetables and sauce, eaten while still hot.


Laap
A traditional food is finely made from chopped meat, chicken or duck is a favourite. Spices and broth are mixed with uncooked rice grains that have been dry- fried, and crushed. Laap is served together with a plate of raw vegetables and sticky rice.
