Many ‘Likes’

Advertisements

Wow I am getting a lot of ‘Likes’ on Facebook lately and currently past the 2500 mark! Thank you for the awesome support!

Surprisingly most of the ‘Likes’ come from Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos… I really don’t have much friends there BUT now I do! I will try to interact with you guys as much as possible! I’ve been to Cambodia and Vietnam but not Myanmar and Laos. I promise I will visit soon and perhaps you guys can show me around for the best street foods in those countries! As a token of my appreciation, I will say a few words in your language (Google translate of course!) I do not know how accurate the translation is, let me apologize first but you know what I mean in English!

English Version:

To my Vietnamese/Cambodian/Laos/Burmese friends:
Thank you for your support! I will visit your country soon to write on awesome Vietnamese/Cambodian/Laos/Burmese foods!

For my Vietnamese friends: 

Để người bạn Việt Nam của tôi:

Cảm ơn bạn đã hỗ trợ của bạn! Tôi sẽ đến thăm đất nước của bạn sớm một lần nữa để viết về các loại thực phẩm tuyệt vời Việt Nam!

For my Cambodian friends: 

ទៅមិត្ត របស់ប្រទេសកម្ពុជា របស់ខ្ញុំ:

សូមអរគុណចំពោះ ការគាំទ្រ របស់អ្នក! ខ្ញុំនឹង ទៅទស្សនា ប្រទេសរបស់អ្នក ឆាប់ ជាថ្មីម្តងទៀត ដើម្បីសរសេរ នៅលើ ម្ហូបខ្មែរ ល្អមែនទែន!

For my Laos friends:

ກັບຫມູ່ເພື່ອນຂອງ ລາວ ຂ້າພະເຈົ້າ:

ຂໍຂອບໃຈ ທ່ານສໍາລັບການ ສະຫນັບສະຫນູນ ຂອງທ່ານ! ຂ້າພະເຈົ້າ ຈະໄປຢ້ຽມຢາມ ປະເທດຂອງທ່ານ ໃນທັນທີ ທີ່ຈະຂຽນ ກ່ຽວກັບອາຫານ ລາວ ຫນ້າຫວາດສຽວ!

For my Burmese friends:

Believe me, very hard to find translation for Burmese! Hope it’s correct!

Gastronomically yours,

Big Roy

CAFE PUKA PUKA (SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA)

If you’re in Siem Reap going through the dunno how many temples and one of the 7 wonders in the world, Angkor Wat, you will get super duper thirsty. You will definitely crave for something icy or cold. Cafe Puka Puka is the solution. Open by a Japanese Lady who I suspect to be Madam Sachiko… hehe… check out the signage and pics below:

Outside of Cafe Puka Puka
There it is!
Ordering Counter and the cashier speaks Japanese!!!
Crazy people sitting outside the hot sun... think they are smokers... haha
Gee they are super busy with so many Jap customers
While I waited patiently for my number to be called out...
The much awaited for Mango Cooler! Everything from the ice cream to the mango puree is home made... very very very nice....
The Mango shakes are excellent too!!!

Rating: 4.5/5. A bit pricey and the aircon is not really working very well inside… hence not conducive. No perfect 5!

Taste: Very very good and addictive! Having withdrawl symptoms now… help!!!

Portion: Average

Price: US$4 for the mango cooler and US$2 for the mango shake

RTE: My 4th visit there!!!

Location:

There you go... got map some more for you... I good huh?

SANG HWANG NA RA (SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA)

Your guys must be wondering like what? Cambodia?! Yeah it’s true, this Korean restaurant has been here for many years already and this Korean lady migrated to Siem Reap after seeing so many Koreans coming to the country. Hence she erected a small building beside this garden sanctuary restaurant where the lodging for her and her workers and also the kitchen is located. 

This is my 2nd time here and I didn’t feature it in the first place cos eatwithroy! was not up then. Since I’m back to do charity work, I might as well feature what’s good in Siem Reap! 🙂 Enjoy the pics below and click to enlarge!

There it is...

View on the right
Washyour hands before your meals!
One of the volunteers in my group showing how it's being done... don't think she lasted 5 mins... haha
Check out the spread!!! 20 home made healthy dishes! Super organic!
Free flow... eat all you can...
Unpolished rice also free flow... had 3 bowls!!!
Authentic Korean stainless steel cutlery is used!
Whack until jialat jialat... ;P
The lady owner and me...

Rating: 4.5/5. Organic may not be for everyone. But it’s very good for us!

Taste: Very nice home cooked dishes… gives us an insight of what Koreans eat at home.

Portion: It’s free flow… what you think? ;P

Price: Get ready for this… free flow everything including ice tea. US$5 per person.

RTE: When I’m back in Siem Reap lah! Far leh.

Go figure out this one... or call for directions. 🙂
