Cambodian Chef Luu Meng Launches Malis in Siem Reap
Following in the footsteps of popular Malis restaurant in Phnom Penh, celebrity chef Luu Meng has opened up his second offering in Temple Town. Designed by young Cambodian architect Vivoath Yan, and inspired by the nearby temples of Angkor Wat, the white building features high ceilings, striking wooden finishes, polished sandstone walls, and views of a central water garden with a dedicated area for Apsara dancing. As well as seating for 200 downstairs, and 100 in the six upstairs VIP rooms, a cooking suite is set to open where up to 10 people can cook Luu’s Cambodian staples given a modern twist. Offering a similar menu to that of its sister restaurant in the capital, signature dishes include the Royal Mac Mee ($9) and Kampot red crab curry ($22).
