Maybe difficult to find because La He Road is unmarked, it runs diagonally between National Hwy 5 and Psah Nat Market. It's 10 shops north of Asie Hotel, opposite Sokimex service station. Open Mon-Sun 6:30am-5:00pm.

Cheap and cheerful! - Edit

A great little local eatery where we were the soul travellers. We shared a table with a local guy as, at 8:30, the place was packed. Very friendly service and helpful people (both staff and customers) to assist us to order! Generous portions too!!

Pros: fresh soy milk with no sugar!, English menu , $1.25 meals

Cons: some egg and milk in pastries

cheap but dirty restaurant - Edit

I thought it was easy to find. just take the road (called 2nd street) leading diagonally from the central market up North and look out for nr. 505
i went there at like 3pm. only 1 staff could speak a Little english, but it was enough. they have a menu in english with a few Options. Prices displayed in Riels, most dishes around 4500 Riel, so very cheap.
Restaurant looked really dirty though. I ordered the Curry with Khmer traditional noodles because it sounded like something Special.
i basically got a bowl of pre-cooked Curry soup which was then reheated plus noodles added. noodles were not Special at all, just plain instant noodles. didn't like it very much. Okay to eat but all in all quite disappointing.
this Restaurant is listed in lonely planet "SEA on a shoestring" as well under "vegetarian Foods Restaurant".
in General: disappointing, i don't know where all These good Reviews come from!

Pros: vegetarian only

Cons: not tasty, dirty

Around the petrol station - Edit

The Mercy ( on a corner, no english name on the front but: WIFI WELCOME written on the door) as well as the 2nd veg rest nearer to the NH-5(no name only written "vegetarian" amongst khmer language outside on a sheet at the front) are 60m away from each other. Both at the end of La He Road and NH-5. Around the petrol station. Both are hard to recognice but certainly do exist.

Food for the journey! - Edit

Lovely owners, very friendly and spoke enough English to explain what was on offer. We bought take away food here early for our bus journey to Phnom Penh and it was just what we needed- some rice, a noodle dish and some mock meat thrown in for good measure. Very cheap and ideal!

I can't stress enough how important it is to have food like this available in Asia when you're veggie, because long journeys either don't stop at all, or will stop at small places with no options for you. It pays to be prepared!

Pros: convenient, cheap

Good News!! - Edit

This restaurant is now open until 8pm. I suspect they do run out of things however. Dumplings were sold out at noon when we were there. The food is super delicious- very flavorful and sooo cheap.

Pros: excellent food, great prices, local, not touristic

Tasty and cheap! - Edit

I prefer this place to Mercy House which is right nearby, though Mercy House's hours are certainly more fitting with my schedule!

Both times I went they were almost completely sold out so I ate whatever was left. First, a curry noodle soup and second, a rice soup. Both delicious! The soy milk is good and also absurdly cheap.

Seems to close around 11:30 or 12:00, but the food runs out often before then.

Pros: Cheap, Wholesome, Tasty

Cons: Only open in AM

Cheap tasty and quick - Edit

This little place is great. Classic asian canteen style serving lots of locals. Delicious noodle soups, steamed filled buns and home made hot and cold soy milk. Lots of fake meat choices. Great for veggies who want to eat local cheap food. They also do food to take away. English spokem and menu

Pros: Cheap, Delicious, Quick and friendly

Cons: only open mornings

simple, basic, wholesome affair - Edit

One of the staff told me they're open mornings from 6 to 11:30. Plenty of locals were dining here which is always a good sign.

I'm not big on savouries for breakfast so I grabbed some take-away for my lunch on the bus trip back to Phnom Penh.

I ordered 3 deep-fried (read: VERY deep-fried) spring rolls and pickled crisp vegetables; and a serve of thin rice noodles with mushrooms (very yummy), no egg (all up under 1 US dollar). However the first serve of noodles i received had sliced boiled egg on it, but they fixed it the second time around! Seems to be a family business, genuine and friendly people.

A bit of advice if you get take-away: if the rubber band is too tightly wound around the top of the plastic bag to open it (as mine was), stab it with your chopsticks to open it and get the food out!!

My favorite breakfast stop! - Edit

This is a very modest establishment, but the fact that they can afford to limit their hours to the morning rush is enough to indicate the quality of their food. There are rice, noodle dishes, and rice buns (bun bao/noum bao). My favorite is the rice porridge/congee (boboa) with bits of tofu that is YUM! I never thought vegetarian rice porridge could taste soooo good. And the price - at 2000 riel per bowl - very right.

Pros: Great food, Healthy, Awesome value

Cons: Open only for breakfast
