Enjoy Cambodian food and Khmer hospitality
Slowly Cambodia is getting tourists again, we say an increase in requests compared to last your and got actual bookings.Dine With The Locals is operating again, but we had to make a few adjustments. Due to the challenges of the last two years and costs we had, as well as increased tax and food costs we have to adjust the pricing a bit. We also had to update the lists of hosts – some are not available anymore, but we are looking for others. We still connect you to families with delicious Cambodian food.
This is how you can get a taste of Cambodian food
When you visit Cambodia you most likely get fish amok presented, a national treasure and signature dish, There are many ways to prepare it, but Ms. LaumMs. Laum, one of our hosts, is doing it in a very special and delicious way. She will explain all the secrets and you can even make Num Pom, Khmer waffles, with her.
Our host Ms Vannarith is one of the most popular families for our guests. She lives with her husband and two children in the Angkor forest, in a traditional wooden house. If you ever wonders, how Khmer families live these days, Ms, Vannarith and her husband give you a very good insight – and you get some super yummy handmade fishballs.
Cambodian food is part of the Khmer culture, and so is silk. When you are in Phnom Penh, we strongly recommend you to visit Narim, who owns a silk farm and makes traditional and modern products out of it. She is part of a community promoting the old Golden Cambodian Silk and patterns centuries old. Beside learning how to weave, you will prepare together a three course meal.
We are looking out now for more hosts where you can get a unforgettable experience with a local family. Other than cooking classes this is a authentic adventure you will never forget. Many guests made friends here, and are still in contact with the families. Enjoy Khmer hospitality and the varieties of Cambodian food.
