Romdeng Restaurant – Phnom Penh, Cambodia

The best things are found in the most unexpected places. Tucked away on Street 174, Phnom Penh, you will find Romdeng, a training restaurant run by former street youth. Romdeng restaurant in Phnom Penh is where you get to things-to-do the true Cambodian cuisine, from almost forgotten recipes from the provinces to contemporary creative Cambodian dishes.

Housed in a restored colonial building with a lush garden and small swimming g pool, the restaurant is decorated with special cares to include as many Cambodian made products as possible. The wooden carvings, tables, chairs and unique lights were all handmade in Cambodia. The silk goods and cushions and paintings adorning Romdeng were made by the students from the charity center of Mith Samlanh. The restaurant serves contemporary and country-style Khmer dishes, including the famous fish amok, pomelo salad, tiger prawn curry, and stir-fried Kampot black pepper crab. There’s also a selection of insect-based delicacies for the daring diners, such as crispy tarantula and stir-fried red tree ants with beef fillet and holy basil. Diners can also enjoy a wide selection of drinks, ranging from fruit smoothies and coffee to imported wines and beers.

No matter what you end up ordering, you’ll enjoy excellent food in a great atmosphere while supporting a good cause.
