About Lost Plate Phnom Penh Food Tours
Phnom Penh is a huge city and it can be difficult to find the best local restaurants, so leave the hard work to us! Our fleet of tuktuks will take you to local, family-run restaurants and stalls that don’t make it into the guidebooks and top ten lists, where you’ll hear the story behind each dish and its importance to the local culture. We’ll cover a distance of around 10km during the evening, zipping past some of Phnom Penh’s famous landmarks. And all of that while sipping on unlimited beer (or soft drinks if you prefer)!

Nightlife in Phnom Penh: Hidden Bar Tour by Tuk-tuk

This all-inclusive tuk-tuk tour explores some of Phnom Penh's best kept nightlife secrets. Meet the owners of Phnom Penh's household names and try off-menu items and custom cocktails. You'll start at a craft brewery to sample their selection, and have the option of trying them out at different stages of the brewing process. Then you'll visit 3 cocktail and craft beer bars that cover the entire landscape of Phnom Penh's nightlife, from holes in the wall to reservation-only establishments. Sample locally produced spirits like Cambodia’s finest rum and gin, to the traditional khmer flavours like black sticky-rice wine and local bar snacks. The tour might include a gig or two depending on the night, and ends near a nightlife hotspot if you want to keep the night going. The tour also includes pick-up and drop offs at your hotel, and we highly recommend having dinner beforehand.

Tour guide was Titi (not sure on the spelling), but she was great! Very personable, and knowledgeable about the food history and restaurant history in the stops we made. Our tour had 5 stops and each restaurant had their own style. One was so good, we went back the next night! Highly recommend.

The lost plate food tour is by far my favorite culinary experience in Cambodia. The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. They took us to so many delicious spots that we likely wouldn’t have found on our own. The food on this tour was the best we experienced anywhere during our 8 days in Cambodia. Riding around on tuk tuks is a great way to see the city at night and much more fun than many of the walking food tours offered in other cities. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone visiting Phnom Penh.

The tour was a great intro to Cambodian food and culture. My friend and I took the tour at the beginning of our trip which helped us scout out dishes and street vendors throughout our trip. I found the tour incredibly helpful as it was my first time in Southeast Asia and I didn't fully understand the food culture. I wouldn't have found the tour stops on my own, and each stop has a fascinating back story. We loved that several dishes pushed our palettes. Also, I'm gluten intolerant and was a little worried I would miss out, but the guides made it a non-issue.

Hi Shane! Leanna here :) It was so lovely to meet you both, I'm glad you all had a great time even though Yi might have been a bit nervous with me trailing on the tour! Cambodian cuisine deserves a place on the international stage but still remains pretty hidden. Especially in South East Asia, it's easy to find hawkers who are doing street food, but it is a lot trickier to find those OCD chefs who don't skimp on ingredient quality and who are sticklers to tradition even if it affects their margins! Those are the true gems here, and we're glad we could bring you to their kitchens :)

A Lost Plate Food Tour is a must for any PP first timers. The tour provides a road map to eating safely and enjoyably in PP. Our party of four joined three others and Lea, our host, took us to six locations (four restaurants, a dessert stall and a bar) via Tuk Tuk over 3 hours or so. The tour provided a variety of food types and ambiences, from street style to mainstream - and Lea provided some historical context along the way as well!

Thank you for the review! Absolutely do food tours everywhere you go, and on your first night if possible so you can build a palette-map of the cuisine and get all the best local recommendations. Also, drinking beer in a tuk tuk is definitely the local way to do it! We hope you enjoyed your time here, and that we'll be sharing a table with you again soon!

Our guide Lea was friendly and kept us engaged, and the variety of food was great! We definitely would not have felt comfortable finding these restaurants ourselves so it was a great intro to eating in PP! We were lucky enough to have a total group of 8 (two smaller groups and an individual) who all got along well, which definitely helped too.

Cambodian cuisine's variety is so easy to overlook, we're glad you noticed that on our menu. When designing these experiences, it's always a tricky balance between showing off heritage and how much space your stomach has :) I'm glad you enjoyed your group, we like to keep it between 2-10 so it's always a bit fun to meet others and share a beer or six with other adventurous eaters!
