Phnom Penh takes reservations for groups of 6 or more so we only waited for 10 mins or so to get a seat which is pretty good considering the hoards of people there for lunch! As usual, it looks pretty hectic in there but service was really fast. Gotta keep that turnover rate up!
One of their most popular items is the Filet Beef Luc Lac on Rice and you can add an egg for $1 or it could be $1.50… The beef is really smooth and the sauce goes well with the rice. It’s actually not my favourite item here though but it is super popular and a lot of people get it
This was one of their Dry Mixed Noodle bowls forgot what was in it… shrimp and Vietnamese pork on rice noodles? I didn’t try this but it looked good.
This was the Stewed Beef with Rice Noodles in soup. It came with carrots and the soup had a tomato/carrot flavour to it. The beef brisket was soft and flavourful from the soup. It’s not really my type of soup though so I wouldn’t get it again.
And now for the Marinated Butter Beef! This is also a must order item here if you didn’t know already! The beef is lightly seared and there’s a lot of cilantro and I believe balsamic vinegar and it just tastes really good mixed up! You get a lot of the cilantro flavour with the tender beef and the acidity from the vinegar is refreshing. I could probably eat this whole plate all by myself!
Finally we can’t forget about the FAMOUS CHICKEN WINGS!!! I’m a huge chicken wing fan and you just can’t go wrong with these. They’re just so crisp and well seasoned and the lemon salt concoction they provide as a dip is really good too. I’m sure I can also devour a whole plate of these…
Overall another delicious meal here with no complaints. Check out my previous post here where I also tried some deep fried frog legs! ;)
My friend and I decided to pop over to Crackle Creme one block over and share an Earl Grey creme brule! They have a lot of flavours now and they all seem equally enticing! I still have so many to try 8)
I love that it’s torched right in front of you and the top makes that satisfying crack as you dig in. The creme brule was bursting with Earl Grey flavour and it was just a heavenly treat.
