Fodor's Expert Review Romdeng

$ Phnom Penh Cambodian

Some of the country's tastiest provincial Khmer dishes are served at this gorgeously redesigned house in a residential area. The adventurous can try the three flavors of prahok, Cambodia's signature fermented fish paste, or even fried spiders. If those don't suit your tastes, Romdeng (which means "galangal" in Khmer) offers plenty of piquant soups, curries, salads, and meat dishes. Have a glass of palm wine to sip with the meal, and enjoy the paintings on the walls—artwork by former street kids. The restaurant is part of the Mith Samlanh (Friends) group, so your dollars will help the former street kids who are trained to work here.
