Romdeng – Phnom Penh

WP_20151031_22_39_24_Pro

Romdeng is a restaurant in Phnom Penh Cambodia which is part of the “Friends” alliance which staffs former street kids and teachers. Set in a beautiful colonial style setting with tables, chairs, lights, and wooden carvings all made in Cambodia.

However, this restaurant was also chosen for its ‘interesting’ menu.

Sorry for the squirmish people. For the adventerous – please keep reading.So, most people ask what is it like eating something so many of us have phobias of?

Taste:  Close to fish

Texture: Wasn’t hairy tasting. Not as crunchy as the one I had on the streets in Siem Reap though. I prefered that much more.

Hot Lemon Grass Tea. Very refreshing.

Tree ant and beef stir fry. I didn’t think much of this, it just tasted like another regular beef stir fry, and nothing unique. My friend did note a licorice type taste.

Ice-cream with fruit. Very refreshing.

Overall with the experience. The food was okay (what I chose anyway). The decor is lovely, the service is on point, and the swimming pool looks tempting.

Crystal Angkor – Siem Reap

Happy New year!

To kick 2016 off I will be posting a handful of the weird, interesting, and wonderful places I experienced on a recent trip to South East Asia. Enjoy!

First place is called Crystal Angkor. Tuck into a traditional Cambodian dinner and enjoy a traditional Cambodian Aspara performance at the same time. I would suggest taking a Tuk Tuk to get there, and to not get there too early. It is a little on the expensive side in comparison to everything else in Cambododia.
