I’ve spent the last week in Siem Reap getting some writing done, and have tried to pick a new cafe/restaurant each day to hang out at. Yesterday, the cafe I spent my time in was Red Piano, right on the corner of Pub Street. In short — I was not impressed. I ordered an English breakfast, which cost $4.75. It was okay, but certainly not great (it can’t live up to all the English breakfasts I ate while living in Santorini). A large Angkor beer was $3. Again, not a great deal. And a large water was a whopping $2.50 (the same water costs $.80 at my guest house). The only plus was that the wifi there was fairly fast and didn’t crap out at all the entire day.
My advice? Find somewhere else to spend your day in Siem Reap.
