The Best Vegetarian Restaurants in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Updated: 13 March 2017
Eating street food and knowing that it’s 100% vegetarian can be difficult; however, veggies will have no problem finding healthy meat-free meals in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh. In recent years, there has been a health boom with restaurants catering to those who prefer no meat in their diet.

Heralding the ‘earth-to-table’ approach, all food at Backyard Cafe is ethically sourced and presented in a clean and creative way. The café also works with local suppliers of organic produce and incorporates ingredients believed to have medicinal and healing properties into its dishes. An example is the Earth Bowl, which features lentil, roasted cauliflower, brown rice, roasted red peppers, pickled beetroot, guacamole, spinach, activated almonds and salad – all washed down with a botanical healing tea, made from calendula flower, rose petals, and lavender. Meat options are also available.

Another joint that won’t break the bank is Mi Chay Vegetarian. This basic Taiwanese-Chinese vegetarian restaurant also serves vegan options, with fake meats, dumplings, soups and rice dishes on the menu. Popular with locals, the owners and staff speak little English; however, the menu does feature about half of the items in English, making ordering slightly easier.
