Cambodian BBQ Restaurant Siem Reap Reviews
An easy way to try something new Mar 03, 2008
At this restaurant they have an interesting selection to choose from: snake, kangaroo (?), crocodile, frog, ostrich and of course chicken, pork or beef. Each person usually orders one dish and then you share a barbecue with two or so people. I think there are some regular cooked meals available if you're not interesting in trying the barbecue.
They first brought us a hot dome shaped "barbecue". Then they brought out the meats as well as noodles, veggies and rice. The meat comes chopped up into small pieces with an egg and you mix it up before sticking it on the grill. At the bottom of the grill is soup. They refill the soup every so often and give you unlimited vegetables, rice and noodles. You add the veggies and noodles to the soup and use chopsticks to cook the meat and flip it over.
We tried the ostrich, crocodile and chicken and our "exotic" choices turned out to be the best. The crocodile tasted like combination of chicken and fish. The ostrich tasted a little bit like red meat or maybe chicken cooked in red wine. I don't think the meat was seasoned except for some salt and pepper. Because of this, you get more of an idea of the actual flavor of the meat. So it makes sense to go for something other than chicken.
This restaurant is located in an alley which I think was just off of Pub Street. It's not too hard to find. It has a "made for tourists" vibe, but it's still an interesting and memorable experience. If you're in Siem Reap it's worth a try!
