siem reap day 2


After the previous day of fervent sight-seeing, we decided to give our legs and our budgets a break with a day of casual exploration in the downtown wedge of Siem Reap. There we found affordable street food, and an abundance of fifty cent draft Angkor beer. One of our favorite cheap treats in Siem Reap was the chive cake. Chives are stuffed into a small patty of glutinous rice-flour and fried in shallow pans. They're then cut up and drowned in a delicious sweet-spicy fish sauce. A must-try if you're in Siem Reap.
