Eat with ChaMike in Siem Reap.

Mike and I were able to try Khmer Cuisine for two days during our stay in Siem Reap. Here is the list of restaurants that we got to experience.

Cuisine Wat Damnak
This should be on top of your list as this restaurant is included in the 50 Best Restaurants in Asia. An over the top fine dining restaurant that serve full course meals of authentic Cambodian dishes that use French style of cooking.

My Birthday surprise
Sugar Palm
A local restaurant that is popular among tourists. Tried this because of the rave reviews I read online. It is a two-story traditional house turned restaurant that has that homey ambiance. They serve classical home-style Cambodian cuisine like Fish Amok - a steamed curry dish wrapped in banana leaves among many others.
