Cuisine Wat Damnak
Cuisine Wat Damnak Review
Cuisine Wat Damnak is one of the most unique restaurants in Siem Reap, offering a real journey for the tastebuds. Beyond the apparent ambition for trendy sophistication in the indoor sala and romantic garden, the concept here is Cambodian food remodeled into creative modern dishes that lead you through a sensory experience. The restaurant serves only two set menus of five to seven dishes each, as created by French chef Joannes Riviere. Exclusively local, fresh, and seasonal ingredients are a grand priority for Riviere, whose knowledge of the area allows him to source ingredients that are otherwise not easy to come by, such as shellfish unique to the Mekong and Tonle Sap lake, fresh lotus seeds, wild lily stems and edible flowers.
