Phnom Penh street food safari

Discover the delights of Phnom Penh’s back streets and street food culture with this walking tour. Begin at the city’s Central Market (Psar Thmei), an art deco masterpiece dating back to 1937. Sample some Cambodian sweet treats like local waffles, or the more adventurous may wish to try some local insects such as crickets and spiders. Wash these delicacies down with fresh coconut juice or sugar cane juice. Continue through small back alleys, abuzz with locals going about their daily business, to Psar Tapang. This market is famed for its barbecued skewers and you’ll have opportunity to sample this local delicacy. After you’ve had your fill of skewers, move on to Psar Kandal to try the popular fruit shake known as tukalok, a fruit shake made of blended fruit and sweet condensed milk. Pass the Old Market (Psar Chaa) and its many colourful fruit stalls, to finish at a local riverside restaurant for a local barbecue dinner. After your meal, you may wish to explore the nearby market or dive into one of the nearby bars and pass the rest of the evening at your own leisure.
