Dinner Diary - Beef Lok Lak

It's taken a while to while to find good cambodian food. Not because most of it's bad, but instead because they tend to only serve western dishes in most of the places easily accessible to tourists. This dish is very similar to Malaysia's Nasi Goreng, however the flavours are fairly different.

It's boiled rice, with a fried egg, beef, lettuce, green tomatoes, and the sauce on the side is lime/lemony thingy that is so totally awesome when combined with the rice. This dish set me back 7000 Riels, roughly £1.20.

Dinner Diary Cambodian Sandwich

I had heard a bit about this dish before I went in. Generally I avoid bread in South east Asia. However because the French influence in Cambodia you actually get really good bread, same is true of Vietnam apparently.
Anyways back to the sandwich, its fries chicken mince and bean sprouts, some other assorted veggies with spam to "garnish". The baguette is slightly toasted so it has a lovely crunch when you bite into it.
In word, awesome. The Sandwich and the black ice coffee(with a crap load of sugar) cost me about US$2.50/10000 riels/ £1.50.

Dinner Diary Cambodian Market surprise

Not for the first time but here is a dish for which I have no name, don't really know what was in it, but can say that it wasn't that bad.
Beneath the fried egg were some (flour) noodles mixed with some veggies, and what I believe to be a cassava dumpling with spinach inside. The dumpling was shallower fried so the texture of the dough wasn't consistent, some parts being a little mushy. Anyways all said and done this one was a $1.

Dinner Diary Pumpkin Potato curry

Had this lovely dish in Cambodia. Not really sure how Cambodian it is, but I can say with confidence that it was good. Came in at a whopping $2.

Dinner Dairy: No Name

Vegetable No name, it's essentially more of an appetizer than an actual meal. Just imagine a bunch of veggies, in batter, deep fried. Simple yet effective. Came in the grand old price of 50 Baht (£1)
