My last meal in Siem Reap before ending my vacation… We wanted to end with authentic Khmer meal. We found out that when Gordon Ramsay visited Siem Reap, the boss of Sugar Palm was asked to teach him how to prepare “Amok” (national dish of Cambodia – baked fish paste on banana leaf). This was a compelling reason for us to visit them.
The restaurant is located in a double storey wooden house with open air seating. The bamboo blinds were useful in keeping the glare out.
We ordered their platter set lunch which allow us to sample a range of their dishes. There were 2 set lunches (US$15 each) available:
- Set 1 (on the left) – Chicken Satay, Khmer Fish Salad, Stir Fried Beef with Basil, Grilled Eggplant with Pork, Steamed Rice
- Set 2 (on the right) – Mixed Spring Rolls, Chicken Banana Blossom Salad, Khmer Crispy Noodles, Fish Amok, Steamed Rice
The dishes were well-suited to our Singapore taste, very similar to Malay mixed rice. The salad were similar to Thai Mango Salad and I enjoyed the Stir Fried Beef with Basil and Fish Amok~
Fish Amok was akin to a more moist version of Singapore’s otak.
With our stomachs filled, we left Siem Reap with a happy spirit~
