Dinner and Lunch with Desserts for Two in Siem Reap on a Budget ($10)

The prices of food in Siem Reap (Cambodia) seem to be raising. Among so many restaurants, pubs and bars surrounding you, you may feel a little confused about where to go and what to eat, let alone the potential of paying too much.

Last week, we went out for a dinner and lunch to the city city centre. We felt like having some Khmer food and a proper dessert. After 1 hour spent on looking for the right place, we finally found it.

Lunch and Dinner

Location: Sivatha Road, somewhere between Old Market Area and Lucky Mall. Not too far, yet far enough for more affordable prices.

Food Price: Lunch for $1,50, dinner for $2.50= $4

Menu: We ordered a plate of fried rice with eggs and vegetables topped with chilli sauce and a touch of Khmer herbs for a lunch (it looked very simple but it was very delicious). For a dinner we had a plate of pork spring rolls, very oily, but yummy too. Spring rolls were served with some cucumbers, lettuce and some tomatoes.

Dessert

Location: Second floor of Lucky Mall

Price: Cakes for $3.30, drinks: $2.20= $5.50

Menu: We ordered a slice of black forest cake, a slice of vanilla custard roll and a sweet tart. We had one iced latte and one iced hot chocolate, because life should be sweet :)

That’s how we managed to dine out for $10, still in style. Two people happy with food and the bill. Please note it’s not usual for us to spend this much on food in a day, it was Cez’s birthday, hence the cakes.
