Top 7 must-try street foods in Cambodia
Cambodian street food is not as famous as its counterpart Thailand. The cuisine, in general, is overshadowed by its popular neighbors Thailand and Vietnam. However, once you go deep into Cambodian cuisine, you will discover unique and amazing flavors.

    This classic Southeast Asian treat has its roots in Vietnam. However, once lok lak landed in Cambodia, it became overwhelmingly popular. One possible reason is the juicy beef, a favourite local meat that comes in colossal portions. This stir fried meat is typically topped with a salad of sweet tomato, crispy lettuce, raw cucumber and fresh onion, all served seasoned with lime juice and black pepper. Travelers can opt for the traditional way of eating, wrapped up in a lettuce leaf in the way of classic Cambodian culture.

    Cambodia is the land for pickled fruit, where travelers are able to find all kinds of pickled snacks including papaya, jujube, apple, cucumber and guava. Fresh fruit is also available for sale in the stalls. Travelers can always get a small bag of sauce that blends sugar, salt, chilies and other seasoning to dip the fruit in.

  • Num Pang

    You will think of Vietnamese Banh My when you see it, but this is the taste of Cambodia, but personally feel more delicious than Vietnamese Banh My. It is not too tasty to use ham, meat, cucumbers, carrots and other side dishes from Cambodian fobs. You will find a cart with a baguette at a market or office annex, a hawker at Num pang.

    However, if you want to try the more modern Rouga, a new open chain restaurant in Phnom Penh, Nompang offers a wide range of baguettes and side dishes. Try the classic taste of red pork and ham too, very tasty!

  • Fried bread and shrimp cakes

    In Siem Reap local market, you will be shocked by the rich fried bread and shrimp cake. You can see vendors at stalls making golden crispy fried French bread in a hot pan with delicious shrimp and shrimp. Seemingly a bit weird combination, it will make you feel shocked, but actually it would be so delicious.

  • Chive Cakes

    One of the popular Cambodia street foods you will see everywhere are street vendors selling small chive cakes on bicycles. These Cambodian chive cakes are fried in shallow pans, and made with glutinous rice flour and served with a sweet spicy fish sauce.

    Chive cakes, also known as Num Kachay, are a popular street food in Cambodia, originating from China. While the ingredients are simple, the taste is surprisingly delicious. They are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. When dipped into the sweet spicy fish sauce, the flavors blend together perfectly in the mouth. This was one of our favorite Cambodian street foods.
