We visited three times over four days and we're not related to the owners. It's important to point out that we love Phnom Penh and come regularly. Not only do we embrace all that is painful and powerful about this city (Country) we eat from cart vendors, frequent the local food markets and usually dine streetside and often perched on a plastic stool. The Common Tiger would be an uncommon choice for us because we'd question authenticity of venues like this. Not this time. These guys are good, in fact very very good. By the standards of any highly developed (sophisticated) food culture the offering is world class and the prices are a pittance. Of course this means it's 'off the scale' in terms of food style, presentation and price for Cambodia but this is the time to start averaging your weekly spend. Savour the experience, take time to reflect on the balance of flavour, texture, visual and palate response. This is food to think about and food to remember. In all of my visits to Phnom Penh I recall and reflect upon how much I love the food 'generally', I now add to that my reflections on how much I love The Common Tiger 'specifically'. For those of you who know the menu to be small, let me explain. First visit was dinner and after starters and main we couldn't manage dessert. The second visit was for dessert and the best espresso martinis in....we'll best I've had. Third visit was a spontaneous final night return just to make sure......and yes, we are sure. All the boxes ticked here.
