**Update: This place is already closed. ** I do hope they open sometime soon or somewhere else within the city.
Found another nice little eating place here in Phnom Penh: Nataka Japanese Sweets! It’s located along St. 271, right across the road going to the entrance of Sovanna Shopping Mall.
I’ve been meaning to visit this place for sometime already. It’s hard to miss, the red-yellow signage is just a big come on. And I pass through St. 271 almost daily. So just today, we had nowhere else to go, we decided to have coffee and dessert there. Which ended up into a full meal, coz well, what they have is really inviting.
They don’t have an extensive menu (they did mention they’ll be adding a few more things on their menu list soon) but what they have looks really good and very affordable too. I think they priciest meal goes for just less than $4. While coffee are priced all below $1.
Most of the items are simple Japanese meals like pork cutlets on rice with miso soup + salad etc. I had a kind of soba..cold noodles dipped in light soy sauce with spring onions and wasabi. It’s different but I found it delicious.
Hi-ace ordered Japanese style stir-fried noodles with miso soup, he said it also tasted good albeit a bit sweet.
And the kiddo got the rice bowl with egg and chicken, with miso soup and salad. She emptied the whole bowl so that’s saying something.
And of course, we couldn’t leave without desserts (they have an ongoing promotion,if you order a meal, all desserts except ice cream and soda gets 50% discount).
Ice cream – I love how their ice cream isn’t too sweet and really have that rich chocolate taste.
And I swear this Cheese Souffle is just sublime. Not too sweet, creamy and moist, with that incredible tangy cheese taste which left me with daydreams of cheese. Lol.
This is actually one of the most satisfying meals I had here in Phnom Penh. Everything was delicious and I’m also happy with the price. Service was also great. So if you’re craving for a good simple Japanese meal or Japanese sweets, check out Nakata Japanese Sweets.
