Cambodia is a land of wonderful people, rich culture and endless opportunities. Therefore, it was fitting that my family and I would travel to this great nation just to see how it is with our own eyes. The experience we had was amazing. The rich history of this country is too much to absorb in one trip. This is why we will be back. There is so much more to learn about Cambodia than we could possibly learn in the two weeks we were there.
However, there is something interesting that I would like to share about this amazing country. I would like to tell you about the food. Yes, I would like to tell you about the sweet food of Cambodia. More specifically, I would like to tell you about the best meals in Phnom Penh.
Phnom Penh is the capital city of Cambodia. It is also the largest city in Cambodia. This city is located on the banks of Mekong River and Tonlé Sap. It is worth visiting. In this city, you will find numerous points of interest like the National Museum of Cambodia, Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, Wat Phnom and Choeung Ek. It is also here in Phnom Penh that you will find the best dishes in Cambodia. The quality of these dishes will astound you. Truly, the restaurants in Phnom Penh can compete with the best restaurants in Paris, London and New York.
I asked a Cambodian friend of mine to recommend a restaurant for my family and me. He did. He recommended the Best food in Phnom Penh. I was at Sorya Shopping Center at the time so I asked for directions to the restaurant. They told me that I could find it on the corner of streets 278 and 19, Phnom Penh. This was not far from where I was. I quickly asked my family members to gather round so that I could take them to this famous restaurant. They were all very excited.
We got to the Latin Quarter restaurant in a matter of minutes. The building in which this restaurant was housed left us in awe. Apparently, it was the home of Cambodia’s first Prime Minister. This is perhaps why the restaurant had such great grandeur attached to it. In truth, the ambience was just perfect. We could not wait to see the menu.
The waiters were prompt to serve and very amicable. The menu just blew our minds. Truly, this was the home of the best meals in Phnom Penh. The restaurant had an appetizing array of Spanish, Italian and South American dishes. This restaurant also had an excellent collection of cocktails and wines. It was so hard to choose what to eat because the dishes seemed equally delicious. Luckily, the waiter recommended a few dishes for us.
I choose Tortilla i.e. Spanish Omelet with Potatoes, Onions and Eggs. I could not remember what the rest of the family choose because the sweet tantalizing taste of this Tortilla was melting away in my mouth. In all honesty, The Latin Quarter serves the best meals in Phnom Penh.
