Siem Reap Updates?

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

      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.

          Thanks for this recommendation. We had the four-course "best Cambodian cuisine" menu at Mie Café tonight, $20, really nice.
