Yummy. Kosher.

Posted on 06 / 27 / 2013

Located between Om-Koum and Street 05, just a few shops to the left of the (fabulously gorgeous) Somadevi Hotel, and close to the night market. Mother Earth is small, but the Israeli menu is authentic. The sabich was very tasty. Mango drink was made on the spot. I wish we had time to go back and try other things. If you read Hebrew, you can enjoy the remarks of others, who leave messages on the walls. Closed Saturday in honor of Shabbat.

Pros: Fresh tasting, Location (once u find it), Kosher (non supervised)

Good falafels.

Though the place is very grungy, the falafels were great. After having been in SE Asia for 10 months on a diet of Chinese-Indian-weird-Chinese-Indian-weird (where weird is someone trying to make falafels that are like burnt toast balls) this was a real treat. Tahini sauce is a bit lacking but if you haven't had a falafel for a while you won't notice it. They are even better than the so-called falafel place called 'f for falafel'. Staff was very nice. Nextdoor to Somaadevi Angkor hotel, down the street from Lucky market. Owner is Israeli so these aren't Chinese chefs trying to make falafels.

Pros: great falafel
Cons: poor ambience

After weeks of rice with everything, a Middle Eastern meal can be a treat. If it wasn't for the three or four dishes containing egg, this place would be vegan. It's on ever-busy Sivutha Road, heading away from the Old Market/Pub St area and past the Central Market. About six shops before the Somadevi Angkor Hotel is Curry Walla; about six shops after the hotel is Mother Earth. It offers falafel sandwiches, a falafel plate, falafel salad, babaganoush, hummus, and a good variety of salads, including Israeli and eggplant. A filling meal is the combo plate featuring falafel, Israeli salad, hummus, cucumber pickle and a whole pita bread for $5. Most falafel dishes are $3 and up, salads $2.50 to $3.50 and Khmer (Cambodian) dishes $3. Fruit and veg juices are $2.50 to $3. Cans of soft drink or beer are the standard Siem Reap restaurant price: $1.

Pros: almost vegan, authentic Israeli, friendly staff
Cons: those darn eggs, off the beaten restaurant track
