Cuisine Wat Damnak
Siem Reap, Cambodia
Cuisine Wat Damnak is set in a traditional wooden house in Siem Reap, an unassuming spot for the first Cambodian restaurant to grace Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list. French chef Joannès Rivière – who arrived 15 years ago, fell in love with Cambodian flavours and now speaks fluent Khmer – serves two tasting menus. Dishes such as sour pork sausage salad with guava, lotus stems, cashews and crispy belly combine local culinary heritage with French technique. The drinks list includes international wines, cocktails made with local spices and smooth draft beers courtesy of Siem Reap Brewpub.
