Rating: 4.5 out of 5
In a busy city like Sihanoukville, sometimes one needs to escape to the farthest little corner they can find. That's what the Secret Garden is, a hidden paradise outside of town that few people outside of those staying in the resort go to. But once you get there you'll be rewarded with an ocean front view and a fantastic menu in what is one of the last remaining great Western restaurants in town.
You will definitely want to begin with their starter menu. From Asian fare like spring rolls to decadent Western bites like the mozzarella sticks, you may leave very little room in your stomach for the main course. Speaking of the mozzarella sticks, the siracha mayonnaise that accompanies it will be the best sauce you ever tasted. They also serve great sandwiches and burgers, their signature one bring filled with cheese in the middle and topped with a luscious tomato chutney on top. They also feature great steaks and a dessert menu that will keep you in your seat for one last course.
The next time you are in Sihanoukville, be sure to tell your driver to take you to the Secret Garden. You can thank me later.

Although I am now back in Sihanoukville, I still consider Kampot a second home and a big reason for that is the food! And few restaurants exemplify this better than Food Addiction. What is best about this establishment is that they make classic French dishes accessible to all at an affordable price. These are dishes that I would have never tried it if were not for them, and I'm all the much better for it. Dishes like curry chicken, chicken a la normande and the fried Camembert cheese are all must try dishes for anyone living in Kampot. And they have a great starters menu, with their fried shrimp with homemade mayonnaise being the star. They open for dinner at 6:00 PM and are open until 4:00 AM and if you cannot make it to the restaurant do not worry as Theo and Ben have you covered. They will deliver your food right to your doorstep wherever you are in Kampot and they are also on tukout.com as an added bonus. Many a nights I spent playing poker late into the morning hours and I could not have done it without Food Addiction delivering food on my schedule.

Cambodian Food Scene
Cambodia is surprisingly filled with many great restaurants, from inexpensive to those closer to Western prices. These are just a collection of my favorite places to eat throughout the country.
