Sampling contemporary Cambodian 'tapas'
Serving contemporary Cambodian 'tapas' - essentially, smaller sized plates of traditional Cambodian dishes - has become something of a trend in Siem Reap
's restaurants in recent years. It's a great idea as they're ideal for sharing and allow you to sample an array of dishes instead of two or three. A number of restaurants offer tapas-style Cambodian selections, including Marum restaurant, which actually specializes in contemporary Cambodian tapas, and AHA, a wine bar and restaurant in the Old Market quarter, however, I love this selection at the beautiful Samar Villas and Spa, an intimate boutique hotel that is a member of Secret Retreats.
