Market & Snack in Cambodia

10 May

I noticed i didn’t write anything about Cambodia and the food there, while actually it’s a really nice place if you want to eat delicious food. The coffee is amazing, the best i’ve ever had, but the food is also awesome, like in Thailand and Laos.

In this article, i just want to show a typical market in Cambodia. Merkets are usually located in the center of the city. People just put their products in wicker baskets directly on the floor or on tables. Maybe not in touristic cities, like Siem Reap, but in the other cities i’ve been, it was like that. Of course for us it’s a little disturbing because of the hygienic requirements, but if you’re careful, it should be ok. I mean, during the all trip i was only sick once in Laos because they washed the vegetables in the Mekong (I don’t even want to think about what kind of chemical products and other things there are in the river).

So yeah, basically, you have a lot of fruits, and vegetables, fishes, meats, spicies. What really surprised me is that they have so many choices, there is a lot of food, so many fruits that are expensive to us, but actually they are so poor. There is a huge contrast in that way.

The other thing that i liked is that you can have snackes or fast food everywhere. I just don’t get how easily it seems in Asia to eat everywhere, while in Europe you have to be in a restaurant. You have small shops on the streets, near the river, selling fruits, juices…for a very cheap price.
