My friend Roman has been in Phnom Penh for about 4 months now and claims to eat every single meal at a restaurant. His list of top picks closely matches mine which is a very good thing. Whenever he needs a cheap endorphin hit, he heads for Enjoy Restaurant for a dose of their chilli chicken (pictured). It’s cheap, boneless and hot enough to blow a clear path through your sinuses.
Enjoy serve Khmer, Western and Chinese food, but err towards the side of Chinese. Visually, they’re indistinguishable from your metal tabled, scraps-on-the-floor Cambodian restaurant, but cater to the non-Khmer crowd by actually having a menu.
Location: Corner of st. 217 and the loop around Psar Thmei.
