[Cambodia] Groceries in Phnom Penh?

Lina Jun 23, 2010 05:06 PM

I'm moving to Phnom Penh for a little while and was wondering what the grocery shopping situation is there. (I'm trying to gauge if I should just bring a few things with me when I leave.)

Specifically, are there any Korean groceries in town? Any major western ingredients I should bring with me?

ANY info at all would be appreciated. I would really hate to pack a bag with food and find that it was completely unnecessary.

    It took me two years, but I managed to answer my own question: http://www.movetocambodia.com/food/th...

      There are tons of Koreans living in PP, so you will have no problem with Korean ingredients.
      When I moved there in 1994 Lucky and the Bayon Market were tiny. Now they are both huge.

        I googled to see if Psah Luckeeeee (my phonetic spelling--aka Lucky Supermarket), which was Phnom Penh's western grocery, was still around. And dang -- I wasn't prepared for it to have become an empire:

        They should have most western things. I have no idea about Korean.
