There’s an astonishing number of places to eat in Siem Reap – you could stay a year and still not devour everything the city has to offer. As you’d expect, pride of place goes to Khmer cuisine, ranging from inexpensive cafés serving homely versions of local classics through to numerous more upmarket places offering innovative modern takes on the national cuisine, often with a fine-dining twist. There’s plenty of Western food too – although much of what’s on offer is pretty stereotypical – as well as some good places specializing in Chinese, Indian, Vietnamese and Mexican cooking (although surprisingly little in the way of Thai food). There’s also a burgeoning coffee-house scene, with sociable Western-style hangouts mushrooming across the city, serving up top-notch blends, and often good food as well.
