Phnom Penh: A Budget Friendly Restaurant In Vancouver
Heading to Vancouver? Be sure to add Phnom Penh to your eats list!
Vancouver is my hometown so there is never an urgency to try to knock a ton of things off of my to-do list. I come back and visit several times a year, so I know I will be back if I miss anything. I do have a list of places I must eat at while I am home and 90% of them are Asian restaurants. Vancouver has a large Asian population so I can always count on really great quality Asian food and usually at a really great price. One my favorite restaurants in the city is Phnom Penh, in Vancouver’s Chinatown. Like the name suggests, Phnom Penh is a Cambodian restaurant. It’s not a fancy place but a really tasty and cheap budget friendly restaurant. It’s my kind of place!
I was met up with some acquaintances to have dinner and everyone agreed on Phnom Penh. We ordered 5 dishes between 4 people and we spent about $18 Canadian each. No alcohol during dinner but we had a pre-dinner beer at the Brixton bar and a post-dinner cocktail at Bao Bei just down the way.
The popular chicken wings!
If you are a meat eater, order the chicken wings as seen above. If you don’t eat meat but eat seafood, order the calamari since they preparation. The Luc Lac beef dish, which we ordered, is another popular dish. I suggest the Luc Lac or butter beef besides the wings. If you need more help, ask the wait staff. They know what’s popular and they will tell you if you’ve ordered too much food or too little.
Green papaya salad
Bun Bo, the grilled beef on vermicelli noodles, also seen in Vietnamese restaurants
Sauteed pea tips with garlic. I love pea tips, water spinach, gai lan and any Asian green
