Cambodian Food:

Khmer cuisine is similar to Thai, but with fewer spices. A Cambodian meal almost always includes a soup, and fish.  For example, grilled freshwater fish wrapped in lettuce or spinach and dipped into a nutty fish sauce.   The French influence is best seen in the daily-baked bread. Sweet dishes include sticky rice cakes and jackfruit pudding. Tap water is best avoided.  Make sure you have enough supplies of mineral watater
