Set in a beautiful building with poolside dining, Romdeng serves traditional and modern cuisine. The large menu features Khmer favorites, such as crispy tarantulas, in addition to the less adventurous and tasty veggie options such as smoked eggplant dip, corn dumplings and rice pancakes filled with yam beans. Romdeng is run by the non-profit organization, Mith Samlanh, that works to build the futures of former street children and marginalized young people in Phnom Penh. The restaurant, like Marum in Siem Reap, offers training opportunities for young people to build their skill set in the service and hospitality sectors.
