Food Lover's Guide to Phnom Penh

By Viator, April 2018

4 8 Reviews | Add your review

Cambodian food tours and local cooking classes provide the perfect opportunity for hungry visitors to learn about this nation’s unique cuisine. While Southeast Asian influence is evident here, many Khmer recipes pre date the chili’s popularity. As a result, local food is milder than that of its Thai neighbor, making it an ideal gateway to the rest of the region’s cuisine. 

Traditional cooking programs include transport to local markets, a market tour and specialty shopping. Expert teachers explain spices and herbs unique to Cambodian cuisine before walking travelers through the preparation of some of the country’s most well known dishes. Visitors get to enjoy their own creations and are given recipe books to take home. 

Travelers looking to incorporate cooking (and eating) with a schedule of more traditional sight seeing can find English-speaking guides who combine temple visits, boat excursions and walking tours with cooking classes and market stops. There are even organizations that work with restaurants run by locals made homeless by the Pol Pot regime to create one-of-a-kind cooking experiences without ignoring the country’s past.
