An updated post on cinema

I recently made a visit to the AEON Cineplex Cinema, and I was astonished.  This brand new cinema was very modern and clean. 4Dmax and VIP seating are also available.  If you are looking for a more private and comfortable viewing, I highly recommend the VIP seating. The chair is more spacious but it comes with a bigger price tag. If you are a cellcard reward customer, visit AEON Cineplex Cinema on Wednesday evening to receive a discount.

Another cinema discovery is Meanchey Legend Cinema. Although this cinema is a little far from the city, you still can enjoy the cinema experience without the crowd.  Going there is a nice way to discover the city and often time Stueng Meanchey is neglected by the Phnom Penh goers.

French food in Phnom Penh

I have always a fascination for French food.  I think it has to do with my growing up while studying French in high school.   As small of a city as it is, Phnom Penh has quite a number of French restaurants to choose from.   I’ll do my best to describe my experiences.

La Residence (the old Ranaridth’s House)
By far, this French restaurant is on the top of the most expensive French restaurant in Phnom Penh.  It may on same list of the most expensive restaurant as well.   The atmosphere here is quite astonishing.  A waiting cafe bar is available while you’re expecting your friends to arrive.  An enclosed dining area or private room is available upon request.  The room’s aesthetic presents itself in the most refined wooden floor and white, creamy walls and ceilings, making the atmosphere so refined and elegant.  Each table is decorated with white linen and shinny silverwares, allowing the diners feel clean and refresh.

Le Gourmet (inside Naga World)
Located on the second floor of Naga World Casino and Hotel, this little restaurant has so much to offer.  Distance from all the noise, the atmosphere of this restaurant still gets a high remark from me. The setting is quiet radiance and white. You get the sense of sitting in a really 5 stars restaurant.

Topaz (next to Cambodia Angkor Air office, on Norodom Blvd)
This restaurant is one of the most visited French restaurant in Phnom Penh, in my opinion. The parking space is always filled up with nice fancy, luxury cars starting from 5pm daily. The restaurant offers both private and common sitting area. It’s a great place for a private event.

Open Wine (behind Royal Palace)
Open Wine is the smallest in size if compared with the three above. The outdoor sitting adds home feel to the atmosphere.  I recommend trying their duck here.

Van’s Restaurant Phnom Penh

One of the well known restaurant establishment in Phnom Penh is Van’s. This particular restaurant offers fine culinary french cuisines that are unparalleled to others in both technique and taste. The restaurant is situated on a corner street, across from the City Postal Office near the pagoda (Wat Phnom). A french colonial building houses this lovely restaurant. History says that this building was once the old Indochina Bank, making it a landmark of it own.

The Ocean Forest.

The Ocean Forest.

The  Forest Ocean located in Sen Monorom City of Mondulkiri Province.  It is called the forest ocean because of the trees growing on the mountain like the wave of sea. This is why people called it Samot Chheur or The Forest Ocean.

The Lost Room restaurant

On a random Wednesday night, three of my friends and I decided to check out the The Lost Room. After reading so many reviews about this place, we were itching to give it a try.

photo 1

Finding this restaurant can be tricky. The restaurant is located in small street behind the old Russian embassy, on Street 21. If you are traveling on Street 21 or Abdul Carime street, you will pass a pagoda called Wat Svay PoPe before you reach the restaurant, which has a small sign hanging with a key symbol and decorated with red light.

 photo 3

The restaurant offers both outdoor and indoor seatings.  The interior reminds me of an industrial warehouse with unfinished wall looks, but small in size. If I have to guess, there are not many tables in this cozy place, giving it a private and exclusive feel.

 photo 2

Not only does the restaurant offers basic meats like sea-bass, duck and pork, it also offers australian games such as Kangaroo and emu. The crab crab appetizer is very delectable and is highly recommended.   Our impression of the emu and sea-bass were unexpected in a good way.  The emu is perfectly sautéed and cooked, paired with a combination of steamed vegetables.  It is one meal that are hard to forget.  Our experience at The Lost Room is definitely a great one.
