Check out Cambodia's indigenous food; now available in Phnom Penh

Indigenous foods find a home in Russian Market
2 June 2017
Yun Mane has devoted much of her life to protecting and promoting indigenous culture in the country’s far-flung northeast, working at NGOs and as executive director of the Cambodia Indigenous People Organization.
Her newest venture is a change of pace, but has a similar mission. Open since April, Mane’s restaurant Ptas Bay Chun Cheat Doeum (Indigenous Peoples’ Kitchen) in Tuol Tompoung offers a rare taste of the culinary heritage of minority ethnic groups.

Ptas Bay Chun Cheat Doeum’s menu offers staples from different indigenous groups. Its specialties include Janang ($1.5-$2), a pork soup with bamboo shoots and Thai eggplants from Kreung and Tumpuon groups in Ratanakkiri, and Pi-pea, a Phnong stew consisting of beef and offal along with wild vegetables. Other popular dishes include Bok Trey ($2), a flavourful pounded fish with lemon grass, and Trouy Banlei ($1.5-$2), a chicken soup with wild leaves and vegetables. These dishes are prepared by two chefs who are also from indigenous communities.

“Our cuisine is so much different from Khmer cuisine,” says Men Srenpean, the Tumpuon chef, who learned to cook from her parents. “While we put sugar in Khmer dishes, the sweetness [for us] is drawn from vegetables in our dishes.”
Ptas Bay Chun Cheat Doeum is located at 68A on Street 456, Tuol Tompong I. It is open every day from 7am to 9pm. Tel: 077 99 43 54
