30 Cambodian foods every visitor needs to try

Cambodian cuisine has a long history and a diverse range of influences, yet it’s only now becoming known beyond the country’s borders. In fact, the only place you can experience all it has to offer is in the country itself. Here are 30 of the best dishes to try.

Samlor korkor

While amok is sometimes called the country’s national dish, and might be the one most familiar to tourists, samlor korkor has a better claim to being the true national dish of Cambodia. It has been eaten for hundreds of years and today can be found in restaurants, roadside stands and family homes alike.The ingredients list for this nourishing soup is versatile and easily adapted to whatever is seasonal and abundant; it often includes more than a dozen vegetables. It can be made with almost any type of meat, but most commonly it’s a hearty soup made from catfish and pork belly. The soup always includes two quintessential Cambodian ingredients — prahok, a type of fermented fish, and kroeung, a fragrant curry paste — and is then thickened with toasted ground rice.
