What you'll do

Enjoy unlimited food, beer and soft drinks as you explore Phnom Penh's historic neighborhoods by tuk-tuk. You'll visit 4 local sit-down holes in the walls, try some dessert at the night market, and enjoy cocktails or craft beer at a rooftop bar with our local Khmer guides who live in Phnom Penh. Go beyond the standard market and street food samplings and shine a light onto this ancient cuisine by enjoying 5th century rice-noodles, hand-pounded curries, and dark-age cuisine. Get the back story on each bite as you try local specialties at some of the oldest restaurants in town. Eat from chefs who have pioneered the culinary renaissance in Cambodia since the end of the civil war in 1998.

Leanna

I’m Leanna, and I run Lost Plate Food Tours in Cambodia. Having lived here 23 years I’ve cultivated unique relationships with our partners which brings us one-of-a-kind menus that truly showcase the best of this Kingdom. These people have not only shaped their local communities, but also Cambodia’s cultural landscape. Fiercely proud of our dishes and the stories me and our guides tell, I hope we can give you an insight on what it was like to witness Cambodia entering the 21st century. Part of that is not just street food, but cuisine, from mom & pop style recipes to chefs who have perfected their technique. Understanding the production, preparation, and consumption of so many beautiful dishes is a lens into the past and a way for me and my team to demonstrate the lost generations before us and how they lived. I hope you can come join us!

Where you'll be

Most of the places that we visit on the tour are small family-run eateries that are open for a long time and frequented by locals. Our stops are tested and true in terms of food hygiene and safety, something we take very seriously. The bar that we visit at the end of the tour is family friendly.
