Best Breakfast in Phnom Penh

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I got fairly aggro listening to two thinspirational girls talking loudly about being thin in an NGO hangout yesterday while I was chowing down on an American breakfast. I tried to explain my reaction to our Khmer manager.

It doesn't translate well to a country known for its poverty.

now wait- doesn't blue dolphin serve Facon and thai chicken sausages?

i may be mistaken here.

i seem to recall 172 is one of the greatest offenders with ersatz soybean/maize "coffee" as well.

maybe i have blue dolphin mixed up with another place on that street of little to no joy.

i met some pommy boxing trainer there not long ago who had lost his passport.

he was completely unconcerned- said he would get a new one when he got back home to pattaya......................

It even comes with beans for the real degenerates, but beans don't belong to a gentleman's breakkie.

The big breakfast at dolce vita.
Cheers good scoff
Toast and coffee seemed a bit weird to my westernized palate but good value for $4
Falling slap bang in the middle of ABC1 categories I obviously had beans!
Update
Is this normal. Elderly American gent sits down at Dolce Vita and obviously doesn't like the look of glass tabletop and spends a few minutes spitting on it and polishing it with a napkin!

3 Mangoes on st 360 do a good full English, not to be confused with their all day English breakfast, the full english is on a separate breakfast menu.

Bacon, mushrooms, chips, beans,eggs, Cumberland sausage, fried tomato and toast plus tea or coffee.

You need to be hungry, as it's a lot of food.

Used be let down by bland Dan meat sausage, but they have switched supplier now, for the better.

Blue Dolphin serves shitty food to backpackers who have never spent more than $2 on a meal but who splurge for a crap $4 meal at Blue Dolphin and then rave about it.

I love their pizza an chicken curry there and have not been a backpacker for ages
and their breakfast are good value.
