Best food in Cambodia I've had yet
Posted on 01 / 22 / 2011
We had not really had any good eats since being in Cambodia, and Peace Cafe (battling it out with Chamkar!) was a very welcome surprise.
Seating is in a very pleasant and peaceful garden. I'm not sure what happens during the wet season.
For our first dinner here, I dared try a veggie burger (usually a dangerous choice in SE Asia!) The result? Pretty darned good! It was a nice patty, decent composition, held it's form quite well, pan fried - possibly a little oily - but tasty nonetheless. Success! My wife stuck with a safer choice of Amok, which was far, far better than the one served at our reasonably fancy hotel.
The next day, not willing to face my hotel's bland breakfast again, we cycled back down to Peace Cafe. My wife had the rice porridge, which was nice and gingery. I opted for the scrambled tofu. It was tasty enough, but a scrambled tofu it was not. More like a goulash with shredded tofu in it. The juices and smoothies here are also good.
Peace Cafe has much else that is cool, including fair trade store, yoga, meditation, cooking classes and all that. But if you just be hungry - great food to be had!
Tasty!, Friendly, Peaceful garden setting
