The Cambodian culinary experience can be a fun, exotic, and incredibly unique, especially if you know where to go. This tour offers visitors to Cambodia an opportunity to eat as the locals do, sampling local delicacies at local markets, street food stalls, and hard-to-find restaurants. All of our venues have been carefully selected so as to give visitors to Cambodia, who may not feel comfortable exploring “street-eats” on their own, the opportunity to try local food with the assistance of a local expert.

Next, explore the streets around Psar Chas (Old Market), which are lined with various stalls selling pancakes, fruit shakes, fried bananas, waffles, coconut rice cakes, and various fried rice and noodle dishes. Take your time to sit down anywhere and enjoy anything you like! Make sure to stop at one of the many fresh fruit stalls to try a range of exotic local fruit, including dragon fruit, longans, mangoes, mangosteens, snake fruit, and the smelly but very tasty durian!
Continue the culinary adventure to Wat Damnak to the handful of smoke-filled corrugated-iron roofed shacks and fancier open-sided eateries on Wat Damnak Street, for one of Siem Reap’s most popular street food snacks, sach ko ang jakak, (beef skewers) marinated in palm sugar, soy and kroeung (a paste of lemongrass, galangal, turmeric, kaffir lime, garlic), and then barbecued over coals on a traditional clay grill. Cambodians love a barbecue. All well and delicious, but what truly qualifies this barbecued beef is its accompaniment: a sweet-sour pickle-salad of thick cucumber slices finely shredded green papaya and ginger.
End the evening at one of the family run dessert stalls near Wat Polanka. Combining myriad textures, from silky glutinous surfaces and crunchy shaved ice to smooth medicinal jellies and creamy coconut milk, and flavors that are exotic to foreign palates, from yellow bean to durian, Khmer desserts are an acquired taste for many visitors. Sweets are often eaten as a snack during the day, especially in the late afternoon. This stop will mark the end of your tour and your driver will bring you safely to your hotel or, at your choice, drop you off in the city center of Siem Reap.
