Dolce Vita

Postby bendix » Sun May 11, 2014 8:34 am

Gotta say this place on 172 is turning into a bit of a drop in favorite for me. Has anyone else tried it? They do a very passable diavola pizza and there are few things I enjoy at the moment more than getting one if those outside tables, eating a medium diavola with added anchovies and extra chilli and chugging it down with a half litre carafe of house red while you watch the world go by.

Love the place! Was just there on Friday with a friend for lunch. I usually order the enchilada, which is something they took off their menu (I think they just had too many Mexican dishes listed, and they were all exactly the same, except the sauce) a little while back. But it comes with the best creamy sauce! Wouldn't ever call it an enchilada, but it's the bee's knees anyways.

His brother also owns/runs a place called Nike's Pizza that does excellent pasta cheaper than chips. He's on my delivery speed dial.

I believe they both started running their places back in the UNTAC days and got help off the Westerners.

And La Dolce Vita was originally in LakeSide, and he moved to his current location when all the land grabbing was going on there.

You're like a walking encyclopedia of Phnom Penh's eating establishments.

Tried La Dolce Vita last night and the food was excellent. $4 for gnocchi quatro formaggi was amazing value and a large serving.

Thanks to Bendix and GM for the recommendation

I used to love them for breakfast... because they had a proper homemade new york style plain bagel that was wonderful. last time i went in the staff all looked at me like i was speaking hebrew when i asked for it, even when i showed them a picture of one... sadly i suspect it is no more.

You keep a picture of a New York bagel on you? Kinky...I bet you like Lou Reed as well!
Jesus loves you...Mexico is great, right? ;)
