Cambodian Cuisine

Cambodia cuisine can be considered as one of oldest living cuisines in the world. Emphasizing on simplicity and freshness, Cambodian food has won praise for its elegant and understated use of spice, its harmonious arrangement of contrasting flavors, textures and temperatures within the overall meal rather than a single dish, and its thoughtful and, at times nicely and colorfully presentation of dishes with plenty of herbs, leaves, pickles, dipping sauces, edible flowers and other garnishes and condiments. There are some extremely delicious foods that tourists should not miss when coming to Cambodia.
