After a long day in the heat of the blazing sun, exploring Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom we decided to go restaurant hopping along Bar Street and try appetizers at each restaurant. We didn?t get very far. Our first stop was the uber-touristy Temple Bar. We thought we would stop here for a drink after a long day exploring the temples. A word of caution: a bucket means exactly that. The drinks here are cheap and the service is friendly but the food is expensive, by Cambodian standards, and is targeted at tourists rather than being customary Khmer food. The other draw is the free traditional Aspara (traditional Khmer dancing) show nightly on the second floor. There is a buffet upstairs during the show or you can just have a drink and watch the dancers.

Favorite Dish: If you?re looking for a hot spot on bar street to meet other travelers this might be your place but if you?re looking for something more authentic and local go elsewhere. The food?s not great but the drinks get the job done. Happy Hour is from 4 to 9pm daily.
