Even before entering the restaurant, the service from the hotel staff at Lotus Blanc was top-notched. We were escorted to the restaurant, where the two set menus were explained to us. I got the "Khmer Savory Taste Menu," and my girlfirend got the degustation menu, which featured European fare. Whenever a new dish was brought out, a member of the waitstaff gave us a little background, things like, "that leaf has a unique flavor" or "it smells just like when my grandmother makes it." I loved everything on my menu, and so did my girlfriend. One sort of expects good Cambodian food at a Cambodian restaurant, but they really nailed the western food, too, especially the prime beef medallions. I would say that the can't-miss dishes are "M’ Chou Kroung Tee"—it's as good as it was unpronouncable for me—, which is like a duck curry, and the palm fruit purée, which was so soft, cool, and delicate that it's like eating a silken kimono. I'd like to thank the waitstaff again for keeping the pineapple juice and water flowing and answering all of our questions. Oh, and the price! It's expensive for Siem Reap, but I'm sure that you've paid more for worse before. I know I have.
