What I ate in Cambodia

No matter how I hungry I was, taking a picture of the food before eating became a ritual during my Southeast Asia trip. Cambodian cuisine was unique and it was zero spicy. I had to pour lots of sauce and ketchup into the food to raise the Scoville scale. Couple of days  before the trip I bought a new phone, Samsung J7, hoping that its 13 MP primary camera will fetch me better pictures than my Samsung Note 1’s 8 MP camera. The latter gave excellent pictures during my past adventures. But, food shots taken with J7 were below par.

Menus in restaurants were bi-lingual. It was written in Khmer language along with its translated English name.  Whenever I asked for the Cambodian name it led to huge confusion. Here is the list of food that I ate in Cambodia


 

  1. Fried chicken with pineapple: Chicken and fruit combo was interesting


     

  2. Morning Glory Chicken

  1. No Amok? This is a traditional Khmer version made with fish (Snake fish) and very delicious! The chicken and beef are good but the fish is much better 🙂 I was told by a local that anything apart from the fish variety is a variation for the “tourist palate” – great post!
