Wordless Wednesday #4: Ouzi Zamak


My husband's favorite, ouzi samak is one of the many offerings at Le Cedre restaurant that opened not too long ago. It is a kind of pastry filled with spicy fish flakes (it's not that spicy), rice, pine nuts and other spices.

I had my first taste of Lebanese food when I was in Kuala Lumpur with my Japanese friend Yumiko. We ordered mezzes and kebabs and I loved it so much that when I heard that a Lebanese restaurant opened here my husband and I had to try it at once. And we were not disappointed. Le Cedre is one of the recent and welcome addition to Phnom Penh's growing list of international restaurants that offer authentic international cuisines. Set in a leafy location, the restaurant diners can choose to eat al fresco or in an airconditioned setting.

I don't think I ever tried Lebanese food before. The Ouzi Samak sounds good but I would like to have it more spicy. :)

My husband likes it a lot, yummy kuno, so I guess it's good.

Zam, the wrap used is not pita but something that resembles a lumpia wrapper.
