Cambodia's capital, Phnom Penh has Prek Leap, where the city's residents love to go for food and entertainment, especially at weekends. Kompong Thom's answer to Prek Leap is a little more sedate but well worth a visit, to the newly-created Rice Fields Restaurants. Head out west for a couple of kilometres from the provincial capital - midway between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh - and you'll encounter a collection of up to fifty wooden huts, where a typical Cambodian restaurant will consist of mats and hammocks and serve up delicious food of your choosing. The menu can include anything from roast chicken to snails, and much more. And as the sun sets, the emerald-green rice fields, which surround the restaurants, come alive with a loud chorus of frogs. These new additions to Kompong Thom's dining experience are well-frequented at weekends and as few foreign visitors know about this hidden treasure, make sure you don't miss out. Contact Sokhom in Kompong Thom and he'll be happy to take you out to his sister-in-law's new restaurant for your rice fields restaurant experience.
