Food Trip Friday: Khmer Food at The Terrace

Last week we were hanging out with friends when we decided to have dinner out. We were in New Phnom Penh area so the easy choice was The Terrace. This pretty resto is located along the road to Limkokwing University. It’s quite easy to find the place, just look for the signage that resembles Starbucks but with a photo of Apsara.

Anyway, the place was highly recommended by our friends so I was in the mood to be surprised. And I was. Pleasantly.

Nice ambiance, the food was priced so reasonably, most were in $2-4 price range, and its was really yummy. That’s probably the reason why the place is usually packed from lunch till dinner. They also have buffet lunch for $3 only, which I promised to try out next.

Here’s what we ate. Forgot the names of some already, and besides ordering is a breeze, they have photos on the menu. Also, excuse the grainy quality of the photos. (1) I was starving – which explains the shaking hahaha (2) I forgot to bring my camera so I was using my phone camera…

deep fried quail birds, samlor prohal {Khmer vegetable soup}, Lahb {ground pork with chili, peppermint eaten with fresh vegetables – my runaway favorite}, Nhyom Traoung Chaek {Banana Heart Salad}

As with most Khmer restaurants, rice is unlimited..And this place gets two thumbs up from me. Good food, affordable prices. If I have three thumbs I’d give it a three hahaha.

This is a Food Trip Friday entry.
