Food and drink trends

Food and drink trends

FOOD is a fundamental need: we simply cannot survive without it. Cambodi-ans love their food, and there are lots of restaurants and food streets in the Kingdom that draw teenagers.

The food served at these places has its advantages and disavantages – price and hygiene among them – but street food is still a favourite with many teens (4 & 8).

Because of the increasing influence of foreign culture on the Kingdom, young Cambodians catch up with trends very quickly.

In recent times, many teens have become interested in foreign food and drink. Others, however, don’t want to expand their tastes and prefer to eat Cambodian food. But there’s still a risk that some Cambodian foods will be lost (6-7).

Speaking of teens interested in modern food, this week we’ve found a young man who has a talent for making great coffee and teaching others how to do it.

He was just a person who enjoyed drinking coffee, but he was motivated to become a teacher of Lavazza baristas.

Now he has the opportunity to show off his coffee-making skills in local and international competitions (10).

We also found a man who shared with us his experiences in operating and managing a restaurant (8  & 10).

    Prime Minister Hun Sen once again attacked ex-opposition leader Sam Rainsy for pledging “autonomy” to Montagnards, claiming – seemingly incorrectly – the ethnic minority does not exist in Cambodia. “We respect all minorities such as Jarai, Steang, Phnong, but we have never had Montagnards,” the premier said
