Taste of Cambodia
More than just a breakfast dish, the quintessential ceramic-bowled Num Banh Chok rice noodles embodies the essence of the Khmer identity. Join our passionate chefs as they take you into the heartbeat of the community. Take in colorful sights, unique smells and lively sounds of the early morning market. Chat with friendly local characters, sample juicy fruits, aromatic spices and herbs laid out welcomingly, or just browse the stalls piled high with produce that sellers are proud to showcase. This is where traditions and customs of Khmer continue to thrive.
Journey on past the Angkor Wat in a traditional tuk-tuk to the Preasdark village, where a fifth-generation family upholds the rigorous production of Num Banh Chok. A timeless corridor stretching by wet rice fields, centuries-old traditions continue and the cherished responsibility of producing handmade Num Banh Chok is passed down from one generation to the next. Marvel at the rhythmic synergy among the womenfolk as they labouriously hand-crank stone mills and operate 3m-long wooden equipment, creating dainty millimeter-wide rice noodles. Next, guests will visit the Khmer Ceramics and Fine Arts Centre for an introduction to the production of Khmer hand-crafted ceramic bowls typically used by the locals and crafted by tradesmen using ancient pottery techniques that date back over a thousand years.
Top this truly sensational cultural expedition off with a final garnish at The Living Room, where you will be served the decadent and sumptuously brothy Num Banh Chok as interpreted by Chef Pisith.
