La Cantina ~ Phnom Penh

La Cantina (178 street and 19) is right next door to Me Mates Villa where I stayed. We stumbled a few blocks and found a massive French villa, restaurant fitted, without much of a face lift. The house has big gates and columns beset against the rounded trapezoidal staircases. They serve a tapas style restaurant with plenty of options. For 10 US$, you get 3 tapas and a mini draft beer.


Chicken croquettes with an apple and spicy sauce.


Patatas Bombas, meat stuffed fried delicious with a potato crust, drizzled with a chipotle mayo.


Albondigas, Spanish style meatballs in veggie broth.

All of these were outstanding, and way more filling than I thought for three little appetizers.
