Common street food you normally find on the streets of Cambodia

1. Ang Dtray Meuk

Mực Nướng (Cambodian)

Street food ang dtray-meuk or grilled squid that is commonly found in the towns of Sihanoukville and Kep. The squid is garnished with fish sauce or lime juice, skewered, and served with a uniquely Cambodian sauce that’s made from garlic, sugar, lime juice, fish sauce, and fresh chilies.

2. Lort Cha

(Cambodian)

These short, fat rice noodles are stir-fried with leafy greens, soy sauce and fish sauce. As the soft noodles cook, they pick up wok char and absorb the flavorful sauce. Just before the dish is finished in the wok, the cook adds a large handful of bean sprouts, which are the same length as the noodles and make for a crunchy complement. It is topped with a fried egg and squeezes of sweet chili sauce and spicy chili paste.

5. Bai Sach Chrouk

(Cambodian)

Served early mornings on street corners all over Cambodia, bai sach chrouk, or pork and rice, is one of the simplest and most delicious dishes the country has to offer. Thinly sliced pork is slow grilled over warm coals to bring out its natural sweetness. Sometimes the pork will be marinated in coconut milk or garlic -- no two bai sach chrouks are ever exactly the same. The grilled pork is served over a hearty portion of broken rice, with a helping of freshly pickled cucumbers and daikon radish with plenty of ginger.
