Eat Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh Food Tours takes you where tourists rarely go to sample authentic Khmer dishes in the city's busy markets, street-food stands, and hole-in-the-wall eateries. Your guide, a long-term expat or English-fluent local, will offer insider insights into Cambodian life and food culture informed by a love of Khmer cuisine. From breakfast noodles to night-time barbecue, you'll savor the day-to-day life of Cambodia's colorful capital.

We take the fear out of street food

Curious about Cambodia's street-food culture but not sure how to discover what's best, versus what's best avoided? No reason to worry—Phnom Penh Food Tours will introduce you to some of the tastiest food in town. Traveling in a friendly tuk tuk, we'll take you to the vendors and restaurants who've earned our trust. Our guides know the cuisine, know the city, and know the people, and they'll share their passion for Cambodian food with you.

Enjoy the flavors of a busy Phnom Penh morning

 

Our morning tour takes you to bustling local markets and small street-side stands in neighborhoods outside the usual tourist circuit. You'll see another side of the Cambodian capital when you sit down with locals for a bowl of breakfast noodles and sample street vendors' savory morning snacks. It's a unique opportunity to participate in the day-to-day of Phnom Penh and taste the many influences that have shaped Cambodia's long and rich history.

Phnom Penh Food Tours was started by the team behind the critically acclaimed Siem Reap Food Tours, who wanted to offer a experience in Phnom Penh that delves deep into Cambodian food culture.

Steven Halcrow is a chef from Scotland who has spent his time in Cambodia learning about local ingredients and cooking techniques. When he first arrived, he briefly worked in the kitchen at Cuisine Wat Damnak in Siem Reap where he got a crash course in the finer points of Cambodian cooking and inspired his love of the local cuisine. Now, he spends his time managing the food tours and expanding his Khmer vocabulary.

Lina Goldberg is a food and travel writer from California who has written about Cambodia for CNN, BBC, and VICE.

Born in Cambodia’s Koh Kong province, Vanarith Nop has lived in Phnom Penh for six years. Before becoming one of Phnom Penh's best-reviewed tour guides, Vanarith worked as an English teacher and translator, and he is currently finishing a university degree in English. His father is a fisherman and his mother also works in the seafood industry. Because they were often away for work, Vanarith spent his childhood with his grandmother and aunt in Koh Kong, where he learned about traditional Cambodian cuisine firsthand. Vanarith’s favorite dish is his grandmother’s kaw ko, beef braised in palm sugar.
