Food

We use the freshness of local vegetable from surrounding the village, fish from Mekong and Tonle Sap lake, seafood from Sihanuk ville, We try our best to explore the local authentic Khmer flavor. Pickup some foods which is very long ages and not many restaurants use it.

Borbor Phek is the congee made from little rice, Khmer Khroeung, pounded fish which get from the rice field and itchy taro stem. During Khmer Rue war, Cambodia is hard to get food, Taro stem is kinds of pig’s food but because Khmer are in the war can not make own farm so they try to use itchy taro stem or some other vegetables around the village to cook for the humane with boil so many times to remove the itchiness, and Ka Duch is kinds of poison root but they sliced it put in running water till no more poisoning than cook for food, but now can not get it because we are having enough good food to eat
