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.

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 :)
# Black Forest Cake, price: $1.90 per slice
# A slice of vanilla custard, price $0.90
# Sweet tart, price: $0.50
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.
