cuisine wat damnak
Cuisine Wat Damnak brings together authentic Cambodian flavors and French culinary technique to create a cuisine true to its Cambodian roots yet wholly unique. Chef Joannès Rivière’s innovative menus are inspired by all food traditions of Cambodia, when each day’s fare was made up of herbs and vegetables from the family garden and fish and game from the surrounding fields.
While today most produce is imported from outside Cambodia, Cuisine Wat Damnak’s ingredients are almost entirely sourced from nearby farms and villages around Siem Reap and Phnom Penh as well as the best other provinces have to offer such as seafood from Koh Khong, European style vegetables (strawberries and sweet onions) from the heights of Mondulkiri and freshwater fish from the Tonle Sap Lake and Mekong River.
The menu changes often to reflect the seasons, the chef’s skill and creativity, and the terroir of Cambodia, for a dining experience unlike any other.
