Have a great day!

Cambodian cuisines


The foods in Cambodia are quite similar to its neighbouring country, Thailand. However, the foods are less spicy. Well-known for being healthy and nutritious, Cambodian cuisines can be found in many countries across Asia, including Europe. The staple food for Cambodians is rice & it is consumed by most Cambodians daily and with all meals, utilising a great number of cooking styles and techniques.


1. Vegetables


The Khmer cuisines use a lot of vegetables such as winter melon, luffa and yardlong beans; these vegetables are used to make soups and stews. As for fried dishes, mushrooms, cabbage, baby corn, ginger, kailan, snow peas, bok choy and bamboo shoots are used.

2. Fruits


In Cambodia, fruits have their own titles; durian is known as the “King of fruits”, Mangosteen is known as the “Queen”, Sapodilla as the “Prince” and the milk fruit is known as the “Princess”. Fruits like Pineapple, Star Apple, Coconut, Jackfruit, Papaya, Watermelon, Banana, Mango and Rambutam are also some of the popular ones. These fruits are used in the Khmer cuisines and they are consumed with salted fish and plain rice. Besides that, they are also used to make fruit juices. “Tu kolok” are Cambodia’s popular shakes.

3. Fish & Meat


The Khmer cuisines use a lot of freshwater fish, which are caught from the Mekong River, Bassac River and Tonle Sap. The Cambodians consume more fish compared to meats with 60% of fish forms contribute to Cambodian’s protein intake. Although fish is consumed more than meat, pork is quite popular, especially in making sweet Khmer sausages known as the Twah Ko. Did you know that lobsters are considered as a dish for the upper class? Lobsters are expensive and due to that, only the middle-class and rich ones will get to eat them at Sihanoukville. During festive seasons, ducks are commonly cooked and some of the exotic ones are like frogs, turtles and Tarantulas.

List of Cambodian cuisines:

1. Amok


One of  Cambodia’s most popular dishes amongst visitors

2. Mee Kola


Burmese style vegetarian noodles, specially made for all vege lovers, with thin rice noodles, steamed and cooked with soy sauce and garlic chives.

3. Khor


A delicious stew of pig trotters, cooked with eggs, fish sauce, caremelised palm sugar and black kampot pepper.

I suggest you try Cambodian cuisines today. There are of course, Cambodia cuisines all around the world but I personally think you all should also visit the country and try the locally cooked Cambodian cuisines. Who knows, they may taste much more delicious compared to the ones served abroad! 😀

Thailand’s famous Pad Thai!

Pad Thai is a popular Thai dish; it is a stir-fried rice noodles cooked with eggs, fish sauce, tamarind juice, red chilli pepper, and either bean sprouts, shrimp, chicken, or tofu. It is served with scallions. There are many styles of cooking Pad Thai; so, don’t be surprised to see the variations of Pad Thai dishes all around Thailand!
