I’m not really fond of going to Chinatown because Richmond clearly trumps Chinatown in every way (the food, the environment etc); needless to say, I’m not a very happy camper when my parents insist we go to Chinatown for breakfast before grocery shopping. The only time I would insist on going to Chinatown is when I’m craving for Vietnamese food!
I wanted to see if Phnom Penh is truly an authentic Cambodian restaurant and yes! i found Amok under the “Chef’s Recommendation!” It was a seafood amok and was quite expensive $15. I guess we were too spoiled in Siem Reap where amok is served in a little coconut because we were shocked at how the amok was just served in a plain bowl! I thought the amok tasted pretty authentic but there wasn’t a lot of sauce.
I love Phnom Penh despite it being in the sketchy part of town. It’s actually really famous and has won lots of food critic awards! There’s usually a long line-up if you don’t go early enough!
FAIM? OUI OUI!!
