If you want to eat Khmer food like a local, these are some Cambodian food you don’t normally find at restaurants. Cambodian people love grilled fishes. They eat frogs and turtles. You can find these ordinary Khmer food at Oudong mountain, an hour drive from Phnom Penh city. The royal capital between the 17th to the 19th centuries, Oudong moutain is in Kampong Speu province. Today, Oudong is still one of most favorite places to visit among Cambodian people. The street market near the mountain and the kiosks where locals can relax make it a place to escape for many Phnom Penhers.
