Mulberry Boutique Hotel Siem Reap: A Dining Experience

Recently, during our stay at Mulberry Boutique Hotel (read about our stay here), we also took the opportunity to try some of the lovely food offerings the hotel has at their in-house restaurant. When we arrived at the hotel to check in, they had given us a welcome drink, which was an incredibly refreshing passion fruit juice. I couldn’t get enough of it, so of course I had to order it during our meal too. Like many international standard hotels in Siem Reap, Mulberry’s in-hou

Malis Restaurant, Siem Reap 2018

It was our first time in Cambodia and the city we chose to visit was Siem Reap. We had no idea at the time of booking that the weekend we chose was Khmer New Year! But it turned out to be more of a blessing than anything else. One of the few restaurants that remained opened throughout the new year celebrations was Malis Restaurant. Located by the riverside and proudly perched as a stand-alone restaurant, Malis is upscale Khmer dining at its best. The interior is classy

Embassy Restaurant, Siem Reap

On our last night in Siem Reap, we were pleasantly surprised to be invited to Embassy Restaurant to dine. Rather unprepared for fine dining, we showed up to the restaurant in flip flops and casual wear. But thankfully most of the people there seemed to be in casual or semi-casual attire as well. It was the night of the Khmer New Year, and people were running around the streets, shops and hotels shooting others with water guns. So it was understandable that we showed up to

Malis, Siem Reap

During my trip to Siem Reap, Cambodia, I was determined to try a variety of Khmer dishes, which is a cuisine that is relatively uncommon in Malaysia. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by all the delicious food the country had to offer. At another recommendation by my hotel (Central Suite Residence), we patronised Malis Restaurant for dinner during our second night in Siem Reap. Malis Restaurant is located next door to Chanrey Tree Restaurant (anothe

Chanrey Tree, Siem Reap

The food scene in Siem Reap is developing as fast as the locale and it's nice to see gorgeous restaurants popping up with stellar offerings to match. During my short trip to Siem Reap earlier this November, I had the privilege of trying some delicious dishes at Chanrey Tree. The restaurant has a certain traditional charm, with gorgeous portrait paintings, wooden furniture and beautiful folded lotus flowers situated around the bungalow. Diners can choose to sit outside in the
