There's some good information about Siem Reap but it's getting a bit dated. Any new news? Thanks.

Cheers!

  1. I have the same question, also Luang Prabang, please!

    1. I just visited Siem Reap.

      Cuisine Wat Damnak is a safe bet for a more advanced take on the Cambodian kitchen. I enjoyed the whole menu but missed the taste sensations. The most memorable dish was actually a small dessert amuse with three types of bitter and acidic fruits.

      Mie Cafe is a newly opened small restaurant by a young, local chef trained in Switzerland. He buys all the groceries himself every morning in the market. He mixes European with truly local in a way that works. Tuna tartar, the salads and Fish Amok were all great. Prices are low and service is fantastic by Cambodian standards.

      I tried many other places too, both local eateries and upscale hotel restaurants, but nothing was really memorable except for the drinks at Miss Wong.
