    No, it isn't, food in Cambo is generally terrible, unless you have a penchant for tough meat and blandness....

    just wander around, and enjoy the laid back and whacky atmospherre, and of course the absurdly cheap prices, I never really got bored down there

    Why would you travel to South East Asia for French food when the cheese eating surrender monkeys make shitloads of it at home?


    Because I dont live in France and France is expensive.

    perhaps a top notch restaurant in Phnom Penh could serve up some French grub, but it won't be cheap

    So I applied for E-visa last night about 10 PM and just got emailed to me recently. Impressive.

    Any other top shelf restaurants around SHV / Victory beach apart from that popular seafood one?

    PP is a good food town these days + you can fucking drink nice wine without bringing a. Brink's truck with you. Check out Trip Advisor. They do a good job with PP. For cheap French, I like Marmite on 110. Check out Van's, the Duck, Open Wine, Oscar's, Metro, and. Limoncello. I live in SHV and I don't have a clue why anyone would want to stay on the hill. It's all Russians and dissipated, destitute, old codgers trying to drink and smoke themselves to death with great haste. The hotels are mostly all run down and it's just depressing.

    The food in Snook is well priced, but the quality is lacking. Consequently I cook a lot. Most of these joints will be 3 or 4kms from Queenco. Monkey Mark's serves a 600g NZ Rib Eye for $13.50. Mediterraneo for pizza, Marco Polo for pizza and pasta, Susaday for French, Cabbage Garden for Khmer, Khin's Shack for beach BBQ, McGuiness Cottage for pub grub, Nyam for fusion, Olive and Olive for Mediterranean, Small Beach Bar for a nice hang on the water. It's not far from you on Independence. The best place near you is Zentao. It fancy, French, and I haven't eaten there yet.

    The hill is just a rotting carcass, but all over town they're rehabbing everything There must be 10 construction sites near my apt downtown. The old dead awful big hotels across from Queenco are getting upgraded too. Even the old Freedom Hotel is getting refurbished. It's mostly Chinese money. You know how much they love casinos. There is even a 40 story hotel going up on Independence Beach. In 3 years the town will be unrecognizable... In a good way.

    Second that. Having spent that minimal time on the hill, gave me that impression.

    No, but he taught them at Shooters how to make his curries supposedly. I haven't eaten there since he left.

    Baguettes in Cambodia are good though But they don't speak French, sorry.

    But let's not forget what went on under French rule, slavery and universities not allowed for Cambodians and what caused rise of Pol Pot and Khmer Rouge and why Cambodia is, still, amongst other ex-French colonies, one of poorest countries on this planet.

    But now Cambodia is advancing rapidly, free of french scum. They have a future.

    I can hear your answer: But British did it too. No pal.

    British Empire created richest and most powerful countries on this planet, United States of America, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and then some.

    Spot the difference?

    Don't apologise please. I never met a talking baguette before, much less one fluent in french.

    You take life too seriously, always apportioning blame, usually out of context and where blame would be an anachronism.

    Relax and have a massage from a former colonist.
