Every restaurant boasts a signature dish, and Phnom Penh has two: spicy garlic squid and deep-fried chicken wings. Lightly battered, they’re cooked to a perfect crisp and served with tangy lime-pepper dipping sauce. These insanely irresistible morsels have earned plaudits from Anthony Bourdain and Julia Child. Melt-in-your-mouth butter beef sees thin slices barely kissed with a sear then artfully fanned and topped with cilantro, garlic chips and a pungent lime-nuoc mam (fish sauce) dressing. Cambodian-style dry egg noodles topped with pork, prawns, green onion, and garlic oil are the real dealÑenjoy them as they are, or add broth to taste.
