breakfast of french bread and tea. Because France used to have control over Cambodia, they have french bread everywhere
Wow I didn't know that! looking at this bread is making me hungry lol
Hi Armer & Deborah,The French bread is served best with Cambodian coffee - hot, strong and a decent dollop of sweetened condensed milk sitting in the bottom of the glass.Break your French bread and use it to stir and dunk.It's a tasty, simple breakfast that's always being wheeled past, or if you're lucky there will be one stationed on your street corner.Ann : )
Hmmm I've tried duplicating that iced coffee with condensed milk here in NZ and it just doesn't taste the same. Maybe it needs the atmosphere??
Hi Jill,Yes...I agree. I tried doing the same after our first trip to Southeast Asia, and it didn't taste right either.The atmosphere must make a huge difference. For example, drinking 'Beer Lao' or Cambodia's national beer 'Angkor' in these parts tastes great. But drink it back home; it tastes as weak as dishwashing water.Have you brought home any favourite tastes from South America that aren't working quite the same as being there?Ann : )
Hiya AnnSooo right...my man's been lusting after Salta Negra beer (that's a dark beer found up in the Salta province of Argentina)and thought Speights Old Dark would do the trick, but no! same with the Spanish omlettes I've been trying to duplicate - they're just not right. I'm sure there's whole academic papers could be written on the subject...a Masters in Anthrapology?? - 'why food doesn't taste the same at home as it does away' :)
