Move over, Thailand — Cambodia is quickly becoming Asia's newest destination for delicious food and Siem Reap is the culinary capital. Between cheap traditional Khmer eats and modern organic cafes, there are so many wonderful places to eat and drink in Siem Reap.
I tend to favor the hip, healthy joints who make an effort to support the Cambodian community, so that’s what you’ll find in this guide. These spots aren’t just for vegans — they’re for the foodie who wants vibrant, organic food that nourishes the body and soul. Enjoy!
Pro tip: you’ll find prices listed in USD and most restaurants are cash only.
VIBE cafe was the first 100% vegan cafe to open in Siem Reap. VIBE’s goal is to make healthy, plant-based food accessible for everyone so they work directly with local farmers and ethical suppliers to source organic, high quality ingredients to nourish your body and soul. Check out their IG feed and you’ll be blown away by their creativity and artistic presentation.
Green-Go Garden is another 100% vegan restaurant in Siem Reap, but they do it with an Italian and Mexican flare. This is the place to go for vegan pizza, pastas, salads and more. I ordered the falafel with guacamole and it was filling and delish. The upstairs vibe is chic and relaxed so feel free to bring a book and stay awhile.
If you want the best mango smoothie bowl of your entire life, head to The Source Cafe. They’re passionate about coffee and healthy food and their entire menu is made up of delicious vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and raw food dishes made from ingredients that are “straight from the source.” See what they did there?
Red Fox is located in the hip Kandal Village neighborhood and is said to have the best coffee in Siem Reap! I ordered the lemongrass ginger latte and it was absolutely delicious. Go for the coconut cinnamon mocha if you’re vegan or prefer alternative milks.
Probiotic brewery, anyone? GIVE Kefir offers house-made kombucha, kefir, and jun in a variety of delicious, gut-friendly flavors like passion ginger, turmeric, and spirulina. Jun is made from green tea and kombucha is made from black tea. Kefir, on the other hand, is made from lime and raisins. All three are organic, raw, and packed with beneficial bacteria. Grab a pint to go or enjoy a glass in their tasting room.
If you like finger food and craft cocktails, then WILD is your spot. They serve up unique cocktails made with fine spirits and fresh, house-made ingredients like fresh juice and infused syrups. If lemongrass-infused gin sounds good to you, then order the Tamara and thank me later. The atmosphere is beautiful and relaxed. There's even a treehouse that's just big enough for two people, which is perfect for a date night.
