Review: Yeon Ga Korean Restaurant

Korean food is something that I have come to really enjoy of late, which is funny considering Sydney is a bit of a hub of Korean food activity not Phnom Penh! But despite this, Mick and I live just around the corner from our own little “Korea-town” on Sotheros Blvd. Amongst the massage parlors, karaoke […]

Review: Sofitel Phokeethra Christmas Brunch

This Christmas, Mick and I decided to take the bull by its horns and splurge on a feast at the Sofitel Phokeethra in Phnom Penh. We wanted to experience a buffet of international standard, drink as much wine as we could fit in our bellies and have a grand old time with our friends while […]

Breakfast Pork & Rice

Living in Asia definitely takes some getting used to and for some, its not as easy to get used to certain aspects such as street pissing, sugary bread, offal in soup. Breakfast is probably the hardest meal to adapt to, with many people struggling to down a plate of fried rice or noodle soup first […]

Christmas In Phnom Penh

Spending Christmas in an Asian country like Cambodia has its perks and its downfalls. For one, you escape months of the hype that the shops, media, tv and every friend or acquaintance you have is spreading thickly about Christmas. Early shopping, late shopping, food shopping, everything shopping! Don’t get me wrong, I love a bit […]

One Day in Singapore

Mick and I recently headed back to Australia to visit friends and family, but more importantly to be part of the wedding celebrations for my sister (Yay! Pip! Yay Danny!). We had a really great time back in Australia, seeing friends, eating delicious lamb, napping in comfy beds, hanging out with Mum’s, spending time at […]

Ten Things

Its been 6 months since Mick and I first moved to Cambodia and started working here and what a fun adventure it has been. There’s been torrential rain, protests, armed police wandering the streets, amazing food, kittens, exploring, bike rides, visitors and more. We have had challenges in our jobs, and achievements too. There’s been […]

Review: Comme a la Masion

Mick and I generally don’t eat much Western food when we go out, much to the dismay of our friends. I find that the options for asian food are much more interesting and exciting, not to mention cheaper. And knowing how to cook Western food probably adds to that disinterest when we eat out. A […]

Review: Noodle Shop on St. 294

Noodles, yum noodles! There are many great places to eat in Phnom Penh serving everything from up-market Asian fusion to hearty German dishes to spicy Thai and of course all the Khmer food. But sometimes you find a spot that just serves exactly what you are craving. Mick and I believe that this shop has […]

Review: Dessert Lady on St. 9

We are lucky enough to live very close to a dessert lady who offers a number of tantalising sweeties for those nights when grilled chicken doesn’t cut the mustard. She has a limited but popular supply of desserts ranging from bowls of sticky tapioca with banana or pumpkin, mung bean custard, baked egg custard, coconut […]

And you know its good because it is packed every night […]
