Taste street seafood

120815_10b

Do you want to eat fresh grilled seafood but don’t want to pay expensive prices? Now you don’t have to spend big bucks to go to a seafood restaurant.

Grilled seafood is easily accessible in Phnom Penh. Squid, shrimp, oyster, salmon and ray fish are all fresh and grilled every evening on the street.

For a cheap price (5000 riel to 10,000 riel or about US$1.5 for a plate), we can enjoy the same tasty seafood as in any restaurant.

But with the wide range of places to buy street seafood available, how do you pick the right one?

Let's introduce you to one of the most famous and attractive: ‘Lom Orng Pkar’ or ‘Pollen’ , behind Sisowath High School.

Decorated romantically, the shop, which has been open a year, is unique among its competitors. Customers can sit on short black chairs and tables encased by a little white gate. A big umbrella stands beside.

The restaurant attracts attention from passers-by who doubt that, with such beautiful decoration, it can really be proper street food.

Sa, the shop owner, said that he wanted to decorate his shop in this quaint fashion because he wanted customers to get the feel of eating fresh seafood on the beach.

He added: “As I have been abroad a lot of times, I realised that street seafood is always very popular with a good business, so I decided to bring this idea to Cambodia.”
