Our first dinner in Phnom Penh. Romdeng is a training school for street children to learn a trade.
Coconut milk and lime shake - refreshing for a hot day!
Crispy sticky rice cakes stuffed with peanuts, black mushrooms and yellow beans served with palm wine galangal dip
Khmer snack platter: grilled buffalo jerky, crunchy crickets, creamy silk worms and pickles
No comment on this dish - it was too hard core for me. Mr naf said it was not bad, actually insects were mostly crunchy, crickets were the best.
Soft shell crab and green mango and pickled ginger salad with tamarind chili dressing
Marum’s stir fried red tree ant with beef filet and holy basil
This was the only insect dish that I could eat. I didn’t feel much taste with the ants. I suspect you can do away with it.
Cashew nut and crusted bananas fritters with Pina colada gelato
Crepe with pineapple, rum caramel and pandan ice cream
$45,25 USD for both of us. On the whole, we were find this place satisfactory. Each dish was prepared with multiple layers of flavours and good ingredients. The food was leaning to fine dining, service was causal.
Well preserved elegant colonial house.
