Where to Eat and Drink Siem Reap.
I can always look back and judge the places I’ve lived in and visited by the quality of its cafes and restaurants. I have always been and always will be an absolute sucker for a cutesy cafe.
Show me a place with good coffee served with a smile and I’m all-in. Give me a peaceful joint where I can hide in a corner and blog away to my heart’s content and everything is good in my world.
This is why I struggled so much with my limited existence in Ruian, China. And, by the same token, why I fell in love with the Cambodian city of Siem Reap.
As the gateway to The Angkor Temples, Siem Reap is heavily geared towards the tastes of international tourists. Moreover, the city has a sizeable expat crowd who lead the way with inventive and atmospheric cafes, bars and restaurants.
You can literally eat and drink anything you want here. Furthermore, the low cost of living makes prices highly competitive and the scene is ever-evolving, with places opening and closing in the blink of an eye.
In my quest to find the perfect coffee shop, the best value restaurant and the coolest bar, I had been working my way through the city’s vast range of choices.
However, when COVID-19 decimated the city’s food and drink landscape, I found myself forced into a rethink. Consequently, many of my articles here put a spotlight on those restaurants that had to close, as well as the people battling on through the pandemic.
So come with me for an exhaustive look at Where To Eat And Drink in Siem Reap.
