Cambodia’s undisputed celebrity chef Luu Meng has finally brought his hugely successful Malis restaurant to Siem Reap. The cavernous building is a sight in itself, its extravagant elegance setting the scene for an evening to remember. The Cambodian food here is quite traditional in its approach, but prepared with the finest ingredients and a genuine depth of knowledge – it was Meng that Gordon Ramsay learned from when shooting his TV show in Cambodia. Menu highlights include the royal mak mee, a crispy noodle dish prepared tableside, and samlor korko, a rich slow-cooked stew with pork and pumpkin.
