Cuisine Wat Damnak“I first came to Cambodia in 2003 to work as a culinary arts teacher for a non-profit organisation. After working as the executive chef for the award-winning Hotel de La Paix, I decided to open up my own restaurant to showcase my passion for Cambodian cuisine and its wide array of unique local products.”
