Why Khmer Kitchen is special ?
Khmer Kitchen is the nice restaurant with the warm atmosphere. It was the only restaurant on the pedestrian alley that parallels Pub Street on its southeastern side. The owner Perk Sophal, recently moved her kitchen across the road but retained the unpretentious ambience. Dinner ranging from back packers to upmarket tourists keep returning for local fare like chicken soup with lemon grass, lime and mint. You can enjoy exemplary Khmer staples such as coconut fish soup and baked pumpkin at rock-bottom prices. In the evenings, even with the restaurant's newly expanded premises, packed tables overflow into the alley parallel to Bar Street.
Must try dish:
Amok (beef,pork,fish,chicken): $4
Amok is made with filleted freshwater fish, usually catfish or snakehead fish. It’s covered in a thick coconut sauce with eggs, fish sauce and palm sugar and seasoned with kroeung.

Tips for you
Try the baked piece potato with vegetables (carrot, onion, mushroom) chicken and cheese on top. Superb ?? all dishes are served with steamed rice; real only downside is there's no wifi...
We ate here twice during our stay, once in each restaurant. On both occasions we had some delicious food (cashews and shrimp dish and another dish LAB? LAP? ) the food is well cooked and extremely flavoursome compared to some of the other restaurants we ate at. It is slightly more pricey by 50 cents a dish than some of the others but I definitely think it's worth it. You can get 50cent beer and the staff are very helpful. It can get busy though so best to be there by 7.30 to avoid a wait. A great place to sample some Khmer dishes.
