Second night at Phnom Pehn before leaving to Siem Reap, i am going to look for authentic Khmer restaurant in town. As Hotel suggestion, Malis Restaurant is one of best spot to go with typical Khmer foods.I am sure excited, it just took 20 mins by tuk tuk to be there from Sofitel Phnom Pehn. It only charged for US$ 3.00 one way, i guess it is good price to take.

Arrived there, we are welcomed by waiters with warmly smile and they asked where we would like have a seat between the inside or outside, from the entrance we pass through the beautiful garden with small pond at the center. We choose seat at inside, at least it has an aircond, humid weather outside.

It looks stunning, perfect curry colour, fish is taste good indeed, with nice texture, fresh and great seasoning. This could be one of my favorite dish in Cambodia. Another stunning dish is Bang Kang Malis.
