A great meal in Phnom Penh

Evening came and time to wander around (as Wombats do) and find a nice place to eat. So first stopping at a street side bar for a Johnny Walker black label for Mrs Wombat and a G & T for Willie at a ridiculously cheap price of $5.50 all up. We then found  The Viva Mexican Cafe on the riverside that also had a Cambodian menu.

With wine by the glass we had a couple of Chilean whites (not a touch on Australian but acceptable) and ordered some “Potato Skins” to start and Chicken Amok and Nachos for mains.

The food was absolutely superb. The potato skins were a half spud filled with onion tomato and spices and baked accompanied by a salsa. Wonderful said Mrs. Wombat.

The mains were equally as good, in fact as any we have had for a very long time so we celebrated with another JW Black label for Mrs Wombat and an Ankor draft beer for Willie. What a great way to end the day for an all up cost of $24.00.

The staff were great offering to take our photos so we reciprocated and took theirs also.

Great food guys will visit your sister establishment in Siem Reap when we get there.

About Willie Wombat

Wombats come from Tasmania which is the island state at the bottom end of Australia. We enjoy traveling and try to do a bit before we get too old to enjoy it anymore. We are currently both (Mr. & Mrs. Wombat) in our seventies so the time must come soon to pull up the armchairs and footstools and settle down to life on our 17 acre property 30 klm from Hobart which is the capital of Tasmania.
