Preah Sisowath Quay is famous for hosting some of the best restaurants in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. It’s a busy street with bustling nightlife. You can find bars, hotels, and street food along the way. It’s not ideal for a peaceful afternoon stroll, but it makes up for it with numerous eateries.
The street is littered with various cuisines, including Malaysian, Chinese, Khmer (local), Thailand, and Indian, among many others.
Daughters of Cambodia
Built on the theme of saving victims of sex-trafficking, Daughters of Cambodia Cafe has services carried out by humble women with hearts eager to serve.
Their menu advertises a broad range of meals covering brunch through to dessert. I had a plate of Eggs Benedict / Florentine with a probiotic smoothie and finished it off with a tasty chocolate brownie from their dessert selection. It was plenty worth it.
The restaurant also has a shop below their cafe, where they sell accessories and clothing to support their organization, which works against sexual exploitation.
Olive&Olive Mediterranean Food
Inspired by gourmets who take pride in ‘Healthy and Hygienic’ food, Olive & Olive Mediterranean restaurant anchors on a mixture of Italian and Turkish themes. They not only serve a delicious meal but accompany each one with authentic Turkish puff bread.
Their menu includes vegan options and large pizzas for only $5.00. You can couple your meal with a glass of wine from their wide selection while you enjoy the cozy atmosphere. This is a restaurant for those who want to surprise their taste-buds with fresh, satisfying flavors.
