Battambang

Battambang

Cambodian food is very similar to Thai food. Some of the dishes ordered I believe are: Trei Chien Cho Em (boneless trout battered then pan-fried in lime sauce), Nhorm Laong (shredded green papaya, carrots, mints, prawns, and ground peanuts in a spicy lime sauce), and Battambang Noodles (pan-fried rice noodles with chicken, egg, bean sprouts, green onion, and peanuts in a tamarind sauce). The fish was thin drenched in a sticky/moist, sweet sauce. Didn’t like it much. The noodles tasted like Pad Thai but was bland. the broccoli, peas, and string beans dish was essentially a bunch of green veggies thrown together, nothing too special. Same goes for the tofu and zucchini dish. Didn’t try the quail or papaya salad, nor the plain white rice. The colorful rice had corn, carrots, shredded purple cabbage, as well as a few other ingredients that I can’t quite recall. Not a very memorable meal, most were drenched in sauce and lacking in flavor, but it was nice to be able to sample so many different dishes before making the judgement. Their food looks better than they taste.
