Phnom Penh: Lunch at Sesame Noodle Bar

by Sanne
Sesame Noodle Bar in Phnom Penh

Sesame Noodle Bar is a cute little noodle restaurant close to Russian Market in Phnom Penh. The restaurant was started by an American/Japanese couple, and the menu, which is not afraid of fusions, has a limited, but appetizing selection of dishes and snacks. I was there 20 minutes before they opened for lunch, but they told me to come inside and have a seat, while they were getting ready, which I think was very nice of them.

I had the House Noodles, which is a bowl of cold noodles topped with egg and vegetables and your choice of either pork or tofu. The noodles are either green (with vegetables) or yellow (with egg) and served with a delicious homemade sesame sauce on the side.

I would have preferred the egg slightly less cooked, but otherwise, I was very happy with the bowl. It is delicious with cold noodles on a hot summer day, but Sesame Noodle Bar also serves hot noodles, and next time, I think I will try the spicy chili ramen, which is supposed to be good.

 For dessert I managed to squeeze down the Sesame Balls, which is gently fried mochi filled with melted chocolate and accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Such a tasty treat, and all the reason you need to go, even if you are not in the area.

For vegans: The House Noodles are vegan if you skip the egg and choose the green noodles and tofu topping.
