Discussions about restaurants, cafes, coffee shops or bars in Cambodia. Feel free to write any reviews you have, whether its the best burger you've had in Phnom Penh or the worse pizza in sihanoukville, we want to read it! Discussions about Khmer dishes are also in here, or you can leave your own. If you own a restaurant, feel free to let the expat community know about it here so that we can come check it out. Found a favorite cafe or have a place we should avoid? Tell us about it. Asian recipes & questions are always welcome.
One good thing about Freebird is indeed its burgers. But honestly, I find the best burgers I've eaten in Cambodia have been my own... Pro-tip: buy the ground beef from smokey da boar. He must have the fat content percentage down to a tee because it really makes for good burgers (although a bit fatty for my taste, they're damn good). I've yet to try the smashburger at Garage but the regular sous-vide burger definitely wasn't for me. Lonestar is decent. Larry's is also quite good, albeit a bit pricier than other options.
Yesterday I had a bit of a nice surprise. I went to the Sokmex just outside of Kampong Chhnang and had one of their burgers. These are a real crap shoot. Sometimes the patty is like an overcooked hokey puck. Yesterday the burger was cooked to perfection and the bun toasted with a nice slather of butter. I did bring my own mustard. They only have katsup.For 8000 reil it was a simple excellent burger.
When burgers are 7,8,9 dollars and up you might as well eat a proper meal. Like Beef Wellington with salad vegetables and potatoes for $9.75.
