At Backstreet Academy, we're constantly looking out for 'behind the scenes' experiences that typically dont fall under a traveler's radar. As residents of the cities we operate in, the backstreet team is fortunate to experience different facets of a city on a much deeper level. These discoveries are what we want to introduce to travelers who are passing by a city.
Introducing the first of its kind and outright bizarre, the Khmer Evil Cuisine is a culinary adventure you don't want to miss while in Cambodia. This is what is normally enjoyed in local households far away from restaurant menus and tourists altogether. Life in the countryside has spilled into mainstream Siem Reap and now, you too can enjoy what local's consider delicacies. Our host Ratana will take you through the preparation of local cuisine that will not only shock but delight at the same time. You will learn how to prepare from any of the following items listed on the menu below. Simply choose three and our host will prepare the ingredients for you.
- Red Ants and ant's egg
- Pig Brain
- Prahok (Fermented shrimp sauce)
- Fresh water snail
- Spirit soup with lemon grass (Fish)
