Having grown up as a child of Khmer-Laos, I was really addicted to spicy food since I was young. Spicy food contains lots of benefits and useful vitamins such as spices speeds up your metabolism, weight loss, heart health, cancer prevention, lower blood pressure as well as has longevity benefits. Spices is not only focus on chili but cinnamon, turmeric, garlic and cumin.
Today, Jongnhams would like to introduce the top branch restaurants in Phnom Penh that you should try with the spicy foods.
1. Spicy Korean Noodle restaurants all branches (Mi hel Korea)
Probably, you already know this restaurant’s name just because it is very popular at the moment. Spicy Korean Noodle or you can call “Mi hel” runs their business during 2015 and expanding their franchise all over Phnom Penh. Especially, Spicy Noodle also have expanding their branches to the other cities as well. For me, I like to go “Sorya” branches. It is because I like their friendly staffs, taste as well as the milk tea topping with jelly.
2. Khmer Fungus Noodle (Nom Banjok Dous Pset)
Walking down from the street 200 which is nearby the sisowat high school, you will see this restaurant. Khmer Fungus Noodle is a new experience eating for many people especially a person like me. It contains lots of vegetables as well as meat especially the sauce with chili. The special thing is that I could make the sauce by myself with the taste I like whether I like sweet, salty or chili.

Standing behind the royal palace which is on the street Oknha Chhun St. (240), Bangkok Papaya Salad also has a few franchises in Phnom Penh as well.

Not very far from the “Toul Tompong Market”, Indigenous people restaurant is standing on the street 456. This restaurant also exhibits traditional clothes of indigenous people and displays their portraying cultural pictures. What I like the most is their “Janang” Food.
