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.

We ordered several typical Cambodia menu. Before start our menu, we are served by welcome appetizer dish is mango slices in chili oil with shrimp paste.


And also with welcome drink mango juice in one shot cup. Delightful cold sweet and sour taste blended together in tiny cup.


Done the welcome starter, now time for our choice menu start with the Prahok Ktis.



It is consist of minced pork, kroeung, coconut milk served with fresh vegetables. Tis is absolutely tasty, great seasoning, smells awesome and all ingredients cooked well done. Next dish is one of recommeded Cambodian dish and it is quist famous around the town, Fish Amok.


It is traditional dish made by goby fish fillet on lemongrass curry paste in the banana leaf basket. 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.


First came out, it does surprise me, i did not order for lobster though, but this prawn is huge! It is grilled prawn seasoned by curry and eggplant sauce. It has nice color, and the meat really has nice texture, fresh, soft and juicy. For dessert, i having Palm Fruits with Tapioca & Yellow Bean.
