Angkor Street Eats operates daily walking food tours which take you to the very heart of Khmer culture. Our 4 hour tours are filled with exceptional Khmer cuisine, taking you to places beyond any guidebook on a journey of exploration and adventure.
Our tours recognise that every aspect of social, devotional and family life in Cambodia revolves around food. Quality, fresh food shared with love.
Our guides are genuine, outright, born ‘n bred Cambodian locals. Their knowledge of Khmer cuisine and the history of Cambodia goes beyond any guidebook – it’s lived history and it’s knowledge that has been passed down through generations.
If you’re visiting Siem Reap Cambodia or Cambodia Phnom Penh, there’s no better way to explore these magnificent cities than through a magnificent walking culinary adventure!
In recent years Khmer cuisine has really begun to shine. For too long food in Cambodia has played second cousin to Thai and Vietnamese cuisine, but no longer. See exactly why Khmer cuisine is now booming, and why it’s every food gourmand’s dream.
The cuisine is fresh, adventurous, organic, and filled with so many wonderful flavours and textures. We’ll show you exactly what we mean.
Siem Reap is rightly reknowned for the Angkor temples. Whether it be Angkor Wat, Angkor Wat tours, Angkor Thom or the numerous Angkor tours. Our tour however takes you into food markets, street stalls, holes-in-the-wall, colonial manses and everywhere in between. Yep, you’ll not only be tasting what the locals eat, you’ll be seeing how they live.
Cambodia and Phnom Penh in particular really does have an intoxicating history. But Phnom Penh is much more than just history. Phnom Penh is bustling, noisy and seductively chaotic, bursting with a lively nightlife and most importantly – quality food. When looking for things to do in Phnom Penh and if you love to eat come join us for the foodie sojourn of a lifetime.
If there’s anything our guides love more than food, it’s life. Our tours are a perfect way to meet new friends, chat with locals and yes… even hear a joke or two.
Tram is an entrepreneur who has visited Cambodia more times than she can remember. Tram comes from a family who knows how to put on a show (her brother is legendary Australian comedian Anh Do), and Tram is especially keen on ensuring that every tour is an experience to remember. Most importantly, she’s a lover of all things Khmer, especially its food, and you’ll be pleased to know… Tram loves to eat!
“Kun” Seng has lived in Siem Reap all his life. He is intrinsically linked with the country’s past, present and future. Kun’s stories about Cambodia will never be found in a guide book or on any travel website but if you’re lucky enough to hear them first-hand, we guarantee you’ll never forget them. There’s no one more passionate about sharing the best of Khmer food with the rest of the world than “Kun”.
Otherwise known as Cambodia’s quintessential breakfast – sweet, sticky grilled pork, slowly barbequed over charcoal then sliced and spread over a generous mound of rice.
This is Tram’s absolute favourite. Similar to Vietnamese Pho, in fact this dish is enjoyed in Vietnam under the name of “Hu Tieu Nom Vang” (Phnom Penh Noodle Soup). Simply outstanding.
This is a fish souffle comprising of snakehead fish from the Tonle Sap, steamed in coconut milk, lemongrass, galangal, turmeric, kaffir lime leaves, chilli and served in a coconut shell.
These delicious grilled beef skewers are drawn from their palm sugar, soy and kreung marinade, then spread out onto clay grills. Perfect with pickled radish, cucumber and chilli sauce on a buttered baguette.
These rice dumplings, stuffed with palm sugary syrup and sprinkled with sesame seeds and fresh grated coconut, will burst delightfully in your mouth.
Using juice collected from local palm tree flowers, this buttery palm sugar is formed into round tablets then wrapped in eco-friendly sumptuous palm leaves. Yum.
In a word… everything! You’ll be wandering through markets, seeing bowls of shredded bamboo and ginger, piles of ping-pong size limes, stalks of pastel-pink lotus flowers, bunches of exotic dark green ambarella fruits, halved green papayas, bursting bunches of herbs and baskets lined with freshly caught, glimmering fish from the nearby Tonlé Sap Lake, all whilst listening to stories of Cambodia’s extraordinary past… we can go on and on.
Absolutely, we can definitely accommodate you. Just simply let us know when you’re booking if you’re gluten-free (or if you have any other dietary requirements) and we’ll look after you.
They won’t like it, they’ll love it. In fact, we’ve had kids who have cried because they don’t want the tour to end. Not only are kids welcome on our tour, they’ll be travelling for less too. For children aged between 4 and 6 we’ll charge 50% of the full rate and for those aged between 7 and 12 it’ll be 80%. Bring ’em along, you won’t regret it.

Morning tours start at 7:30 a.m. and finish by noon. Evening tours begin at 4:30 p.m. and finish at 8:00 p.m.
Please note: If you’ve booked a morning tour, then unless you have the appetite of three NFL linebackers, we recommend not having breakfast at your hotel before going on our tour.
Guess what, there’s no meeting point! If you’re staying in central Siem Reap or Phnom Penh we will come and pick you up from your hotel by our personalised TUK TUK before the start of your tour.
