PEr FYI

Lotus Blanc, Phnom Penh…go there not for the food but because you are doing something good for the disadvantaged young people who works there.

This reataurant is a training centre for aspiring young cambodian restaurant workers from poor families.

The food is nothing to shout about. We  had the deep fried prawn with tamarind sauce, glass noodle with seafood and seafood amok. The amok here tasted more like rendang –  a quintessential malay dish with Indonesian origins consisting of beef or chicken stewed in coconut milk and spices. The duck confit must have been the duck’s grandma – hard and tough meat. The fried snapper fish with creamy ginger sauce was not hot. Shame as it would have been a lovely dish if it was served piping hot.

Having said all that, I have to qualify that the service was very friendly.If you go to Lotus Blanc, go because you are doing something good for the disadvantaged young people…not for the food. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
