Phnom Penh eats: Khmer-style snails at The Snack

While foreigners may find the menu at The Snack unusual, the crabs, snails and ambiguously-named "inside of cow" will bring back memories of high school lunches for many Cambodians. Even the low stools and wooden tables give the dining experience a classroom feel.

The unassuming eatery currently has two locations in Phnom Penh, one in Siem Reap, and one in Battambang. Watch the video above for a taste.

Find the branch of The Snack featured in this video on St 360, near St 143. See their Facebook page for more details.
