Cuisine Wat Damnak restaurant, Siem Reap

Pork ribs and fresh coconut tree heart curry #tgtg

We cruised the Mekong 7 nights on the Pandaw,  from Cambodia to Vietnam.   Best R & R with even greater scenery. Before embarking, we supped in Siem Reap at Joannes Riviere’s Cuisine Wat Damnak restaurant. While front of house gives a chilly reception, its kitchen warmed our cockles.  Without doubt, the kingdom’s most exciting fare. Joannes has long been a passionate practitioner of authentic Cambodian flavours and an expert in its regional — and seasonal — variants.  His restaurant highlights not just unique recipes, but also rare and wild ingredients. Set menu included local puffer fish with pounded eggplant; fresh water langoustine with green mango and water lily stems; and pork ribs with fresh coconut tree heart curry. Not to be missed.
