What To Expect
Siem Reap's street food has been influenced by Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese and French cuisine to form a style and flavor profile that is uniquely Cambodian. On this nighttime food tour, travelers will hop on local transport and travel away from the tourist trail to sample authentic Siem Reap snacks, desserts, and Khmer cuisine staples.
The Siem Reap evening starts off with a ride on a moto-remork, an articulated moto-rickshaw that's commonly seen on Siem Reap's streets. Zip through the streets, off the tourist trail and straight into local street heaven.
Your food-loving local guide will uncover hidden local street food treasures and beloved recommendations of local snacks, such as yellow bean cake or Khmer rice cake. The food mission continues with a tasting of seasonal fruits that are grown in and around Siem Reap, like the purple kiwi fruit-like dragon fruit, mango, tiny (but sweet!) pineapple, and the stinky king of all fruit - the mighty durian! You'll also see the spices and other ingredients featured in local food, and hear about the traditional remedies and medicine.
Next, hit up a local picnic spot where stalls are set up in the early evening selling a multitude of interesting snacks. While wandering around, you might see fried tarantulas, which are usually enjoyed with a cold beer; fried crickets, which taste like potato chips; barbecued meat on skewers; Khmer Fried Chicken; green mango served with chili and salt; ducks eggs; barbecued corn; and deliciously sweet purple mangosteen.
More amazing Cambodian food awaits at the next stop, a local restaurant where you can sample some tasty local delicacies, before finishing at a dessert stall where fruit shakes, fruit with sweeten condensed milk and baked puddings are the specialty.
After dinner, you'll have the option to return to your hotel or end the Siem Reap food tour at Pub Street, a convenient spot that's perfect for exploring local bar and cafe life. Alternatively, the local guide will be happy to provide some less touristy recommedantions for a great night out.
