Your evening food tour begins at your hotel; your English speaking local guide will meet you in the lobby. First, you’ll head to a firm favourite local restaurant for your first taste of Khmer ‘after work’ snacks. This busy restaurant is very popular with workers for the common ritual of munching on some flavoursome savoury snacks as the sun begins to set.
From here, you’ll travel by tuktuk to a popular evening hang-out. As well as being a vibrant night market, it is also a funfair and picnic haven, serving up a host of yummy treats. From the weird and wonderful, like fried crickets or fermented duck eggs, to the possibly more palatable fried chicken and rice cakes. Spend time with your local host and learn about Cambodian culture, washed down with a local beer (if you wish), whilst kicking back and playing traditional games.
Your evening winds down with a hearty hot meal at our friend’s family’s restaurant. This incredibly popular joint is famous for serving delicious soup from a recipe passed down by generations. Learn about fresh produce grown on site, and the story of traditional ingredients and flavours in Khmer cuisine.
From here there is an optional inclusion of concluding your tour with a cocktail packed full of aromatic Cambodian herbs at a town centre hidden-gem bar. Your tour concludes when we drop you off at your hotel or in town, at your choosing.

Price & inclusions
Unsurprisingly, we put this ‘Sunset Foodies’ experience together with food-lovers in mind! There are so many delicious treats to be enjoyed in Cambodia, but often finding them and knowing what to order can be tricky. This evening exploration takes you to our favourite post-work snack stop, a popular Khmer night market, an off-the-beaten-track family restaurant, and concludes with an optional Khmer cocktail. This tour starts at 5.30pm, and finishes at approximately 9.30pm.
Please note, this tour is unfortunately not suitable for strict vegetarian or vegan diets due to the types of eateries we will visit and the nature of traditional Khmer cuisine. If you have any other dietary requirements or allergies, please let us know in advance.
