PHNOM PENH – With the current threat of COVID-19, global citizens are encouraged to embrace social distancing – a concept that may be foreign to most of us. However, in order to stop the pandemic from continuing to spread, this is the best practice that we can exercise. However, staying at home does not mean you can’t have a little fun, especially when it comes to your daily meals. To accommodate the current situation, more restaurants in the capital are offering direct delivery services and special promotions to ensure you get to enjoy good food in the comfort of your own home. Read on to find out Anith Adilah Othman’s top picks of the week.

The eatery is proud to offer a Khmer, Western and fusion menu, such as beef loklak with rice, stir-fried beef with red tree ants, fish amok burger and mango sticky rice at affordable prices.
