It is October and there is beer – craft beer in fact – so it seems only fitting that we should create our own Octoberfest celebration in Siem Reap.
So we spent a lazy Sunday afternoon and evening at the Siem Reap Brewpub, sampling the range of craft beers and I’ve gotta say I think the four beers they make are an extremely nice drop, if you like the fruity beers, as I do. I particularly enjoyed the Dark Ale.
This place has a very relaxing atmosphere with a fish-filled water feature and choice of open air or under cover dining.
Also, having some lovely friends to sit around with with and have a yarn to, makes this a very suitable place to unwind for a couple of hours.
The food is beautifully presented and the meal I had – a spicy chicken dish (mild of course) was delicious. The Journo tried the banana flower salad and the Club Sandwich looks impressive. Definitely fine dining in Siem Reap.
The prices are on the higher side for Siem Reap restaurants but if you are looking for a spot to relax and get away from the dust and the mayhem this is great choice.
And of course, for the weirdos like the Journo, who don’t like beer, not even craft beer, there are other options. The Journo thought the Martini was pretty good.
All in all, good people, good food and craft beer made for a very good Sunday.
