Full description

Embark on a journey to discover the local food culture of Cambodia. Enjoy views of some of Phnom Penh’s best-known landmarks, such as the Independence Monument, as you zoom across the city in a tuk-tuk. Meet your guide outside your hotel or residence and hop aboard the tuk-tuk. First stop, enjoy fresh rice noodles topped with traditional sauce and fresh herbs.  Following this, take a seat on the floor and learn about Cambodia's turbulent history over curry and a banana leaf salad. Third stop, pull up a plastic chair at this popular local spot for some crushed eggplant and Cambodia's famous prahok. Learn also about the importance of rice in Cambodian cuisine.

Lastly, feast on a selection of meats roasted in a ceramic jar over an open fire. Finally, sink a local craft beer or cocktail at a rooftop bar. At the end of the tour, bid farewell to the guide and the tuk-tuk will drop you back at your hotel, or wherever you like within the city.

We loved this activity. We tried new dishes in a restaurant that we most likely would not have entered otherwise. Very interesting to know the Cambodian culture through its gastronomy. The great guide. The tour is highly recommended.
