BBQ 99, Katong

BBQ 99, Katong I reckon we have walked this place 100's of times and never actually noticed it. How crazy is that? Today we didn't miss BBQ 99, Katong. We popped in prior to going to the cinema and had an incredible buffet lunch. A lunch that was incredibly reasonable with regards to cost. Basically it is an 'all-you-eat' BBQ for 3 hours. Loads of food on offer that you help yourself too and bring back to your table to cook on your own personal BBQ tray. I like that. Get down to 99 East Coast ...

Viva Mexico, Siem Reap

Viva Mexico, Siem Reap On day 2 after much temple exploring we found ourselves down in the old town. After a very quick wander around the market, the kids started to moan of hunger pains. We made a quick scan of the street and decided to go to Viva Mexico, Siem Reap. There are two of these restaurants in the city centre. It was packed, which is a good sign. Viva Mexico, Siem Reap gets a solid 3.5 out of 5. The food was quality, was served quickly, and did not break the bank. It was not ...

FCC (Foreign Correspondents Club), Siem Reap

FCC (Foreign Correspondents Club), Siem Reap FCC (Foreign Correspondents Club), Siem Reap was our lunch destination on day 4 of the Kennett family Siem Reap adventure. We'd been to two museums already and needed watering and feeding. I made this choice based on our experiences of FCC in Phnom Penh, the 'sister' location. And boy oh boy was I glad to have made this choice. This restaurant rocks. Its light, it's airy, it's colonial in style, the drinks are amazing and to the food is exceptional. ...

Krousar Khmer Restaurant, Siem Reap

Krousar Khmer Restaurant, Siem Reap I have to make a shout out for Krousar Khmer Restaurant, Siem Reap. This was the restaurant where we had lunch on Day #3 of our Siem Reap adventure, just before we went to the Tomb Raider temple. See the temple tour here. We were hot, sweaty and knackered from all the walking and exploring, so this place became our heaven-on-earth. I ordered the Cambodia Sour Soup accompanied by an icy cold Angkor beer. It was so so good, I am blogging just this dish alone, ...

Chanrey Tree, Siam Reap

Chanrey Tree, Siam Reap Thanks to Mark and his mate for recommending this joint. What an absolute cracker it is guys. We came to Chanrey Tree, Siam Reap for a late lunch. A late lunch that turned in to one of the best meals of the holiday. Read on folks. I would suggest that you book ahead if planning an evening meal. This place is likely to get mobbed later in the evening. It was not too bad at 1330 when we arrived. We were dusty, sweaty and tired after a full morning at Angkor Wat, but ...

La Residence Blanc D’Angkor, Siem Reap

La Residence Blanc D'Angkor, Siem Reap We arrived early evening for our first time in Siem Reap, and were staying at La Residence Blanc D'Angkor, Siem Reap. So where better to eat on this first day, than our gorgeous colonial boutique hotel. A quick unpack, and change to swim stuff. Some pool fun, some happy-hour beer and then in to the main event. Dinner. As I mentioned I did partake in a few Happy-Hour beverages. Every time you order you get these incredible peanuts. A match made in ...

Water Cress and Edamame Cream Soup With Crispy Bacon

Water Cress and Edamame Cream Soup With Crispy Bacon I was having lunch recently with my great mates, Spencer and Tobias. Whilst we were eating they started talking about this amazing soup they had eaten recently. Tobias had stolen the recipe from the restaurant and had also recreated it already for personal consumption. So now as a third hand-me-down, I also stole it, but made a few of my own twists and turns. So from a water cress and pea soup I created my own version, here is Water Cress ...

Cajun salmon

Cajun Salmon I have stolen this from my mate, and ex Chef, Rich. Well actually he did share it with me. I was at a loose end tonight re what to do for dinner, and add to that, that the Kennett's are disappearing to Cambodia tomorrow. Luckily the little light bulb popped up and I remember Rich's recipe for Cajun Salmon. The wife would love it I thought. It turned out to be an absolute belter. Surprising myself, as always, when cooking fish as I cannot taste it. I think it looks bloody amazing ...
