Khmer cuisine is full of flavours and surprises. While it relies on seafood aplenty, I was surprised to learn that the fish used is mostly fresh water! Presenting some awww-sauce dishes that I was lucky enough to try - particularly fish amok which was recommended as a must try.
Served in little banana leaf plates, my hosts shared that this was a unique presentation as the dish mostly is served out of bowls or coconut shells. But this bite-sized portion ensured that I did justice to the other dishes that were served too. The second picture is that of fish cakes, which were delicious (is anything not?). But fish amok and rice crackers with mince pork sauce were highlights that I could not stuff myself with enough! Basil, lemongrass, and kaffir leaf flavours dominated the palette, but were distinct from Thai cuisine, and not even repetitive in the dishes we had.
Grateful to have had the opportunity to indulge myself (yet again) thanks to my phenomenal hosts. My food memories are second only to the warm hospitality and smiling faces of locals here.

Glance your 👀 on these mouth watering nachos topped with homemade chili 🌶 from Elektrik City Eats. The tomatoes and onions used in the sauce are homegrown‼️They use 3 different kinds of beans and pure angus beef. One can find these guys @greatflats
