Por Cuisine opens new restaurant

It is a rice to riches story for owner Mr Por whose name proudly stands out on the shingle of the building. Back in 1983, Mr Por had a vision of owning a fine dining restaurant. He started by opening a humble kiosk serving his traditional noodle creations to the people of Siem Reap. Soon, his simple dish became an essential part of the community food chain, a taste that made his family well known and celebrated.

Now, 30 years later, the dream and the flavours have come to life. The family tradition continues but with a state of the art modern classic restaurant design and an exciting array of enticing flavours from both the East and the West.

With a contemporary fine dining restaurant with a fusion theme, the new restaurant is an addition to the sophisticated food scene in Siem Reap. If East meets West is a hackneyed phrase, this is more of a potpourri of traditional Khmer, Asian and international fare presented as a four course experience that will challenge your taste buds and create a lasting impression for a reasonable price.

The success of the Por family’s restaurant was founded by their traditional noodle creations they started to sell to the population of Siem Reap in 1983.

The design of the new restaurant would not be out of place in one of the affluent burroughs of New York with its’ modern fully equipped and fully functional kitchen. Its kitchen is overseen by some of the young guns of the Cambodian culinary scene. The restaurant features all day dining and includes the choice to order from the set menu and buffets. In addition, the restaurant hosts cocktail receptions, gala events and sit-down dinners with a variety of different themes. Por Cuisine has a capacity of up to 150 seats and 300 people for a standing finger food reception.

Por Cuisine also offers many choices from the a la carte menu as well as personalized catering for big or small parties that can include traditional Apsara dance shows between 7:30pm to 8:30pm in the tropical fresh air and green garden landscape. The venue is popular with both locals and international visitors. The restaurant was formally opened in January this year and the design is an exciting new addition to Siem Reap’s rapidly growing artisanal culinary landscape.
