Hey, this place looks familiar? That was what I was thinking when pass by this cafe. We were walking around street 51 which is famous for numerous restaurants and very tourist friendly. We were looking for a place to have dinner so we thought of giving Aussie XL a try.
As soon as we walked in, the staff attended to us. We were seated and handed the menu. There were some posters on the wall showcasing their Trip Advisor awards. I realized it was ‘familiar’ to me because I would have read about it online. Funny how our brain remembers something that we didn’t think of remembering? Hmmmm
Anyway we ordered our drinks and some local food. I had the Khmer chicken curry and my partner had the Chicken Tom Yam soup. Both dish served with a portion of rice. They a good spread of offering here, from salads, local food, burgers, pizza, roasts etc.
We didn’t had to wait for long for the food to be ready. When we were there, only few customers were there. A bunch of people was watching TV as it was world cup 2014 season.
The Khmer curry was quite nice. It was not spicy. The tom yam soup was not spicy too and tasted bland. Perhaps this is how they do it in Cambodia? Maybe. Anyway we are so used to the Thai version of tom yam which is obviously spicier. The portion is sufficient for one person.
The food, I got to say, it tasted average for me. The service was good. Cafe looked fine and seems like a nice place to chill out.
Visited in July 2014. How would I rate them? The atmosphere 3.5/5, Service 4/5, F&B 3.5/5.
Where at: No. 205A, Pasteur (St. 51), 12302 Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
