My officemates and I ran errands across town last Friday. We had an uneventful tuk-tuk ride but we gotta do what we gotta do, eh! On the way back, we passed by Olympic Market and there – rows of nom pang pate stalls welcomed us. Of course, I had to stop and buy one. Nom pang pate is one of my favourite street food in Phnom Penh.
For only a dollar, you’ll get fat slabs of pate on a bed of fresh veggies (mentioned above) on a crunchy baguette with shredded papaya on the side (much like our achara). It’s a remarkably crunchy and messy affair but I tell you, it’s finger-lickin’ good, mate!
