I never really explored Khmer food that much. But during one of my trips at the Old Market, I tried some of their street foods. Well, just a couple.

Jackfruit with sticky rice. 

Jackfruit with Sticky Rice. It’s my first time to try this one. I love jackfruit and sticky rice separately. Most asian does. But together, it’s like a match made in heaven. The sweet taste of the jackfruit and the almost bland sticky rice is just perfect. And you have the option to top it with coconut shavings which give you the asian/island vibe. This costs 50 cents for a plate of 4.

Vegetable pancake.

Vegetable pancake. I can’t remember the name but this one is good too. At first, I thought the pancake itself would be like bready, but it was gooey. So that’s a surprise. You have the option to put some vinegar on it but plain would be just right. It costs 50 cents.

Yummmmmeeeeh!

Exotic. I didn’t try this one. I’m just scared that something might happen with my digestion. I’m lactose intolerant, allergic with some seafood and maybe allergic with these exotic deep fried foods also? I don’t want to know. One of my team members here got sick after eating a pack of fried crickets for snack. I didn’t bother ask the price for a serving. But if you want to take a photo of their foods, they will charge you for a dollar or so. This one was stolen.

Shake it off.

Fruit shakes. The best fruit shake I’ve tasted. I tried the coconut and banana from two different vendors and they’re both good. They are generous with their serving. Not too much ice and milk. Just the perfect combination.

That’s the only thing that I’ve tried really. You see, I’m not very adventurous with my foods but I’m happy with my Khmer Street Food experience.

There are food tours that are offered in Siem Reap which costs 50-100 USD. If you really want to learn an in-depth knowledge about Khmer food, you can go with them. But I think 50-100 USD is really expensive. You can DIY it actually, ask the locals or your hosts. Research. Everything is on the internet nowadays.
