This is the longest I have been away from blogging so far. Although not totally off the grid, I just stopped updating for various reasons. Life sometimes throws a curve ball at you every now and then that you never anticipate. It’s a major adjustment for everyone concerned but I just had to roll!
So anyway, now that I’m back in the mainstream I am slowly creeping into the blogging vine. My comeback post is here… my favourite garden salad with the mustard dressing from Nature and Sea Restaurant:
Nature and Sea’s Garden Salad. Julienned cabbage and carrots, sliced beets, tomatoes, and cucumber laid on a bed of lettuce. Colourful and delicious.
The serving was huge (good for two, actually) and served with a crusty French baguette on the side. The veggies were so colourful. They were fresh and crispy and dressed with a tangy lemon-mustard vinaigrette and served with a crusty French baguette on the side. My only complaint is that the vinaigrette is too thick/dense which is so unlike the consistency of other vinaigrettes I know. Other than that, it was oozing with flavour. It had a pleasant bit of sweetness to it, perhaps, sugar was added to temper the acidity of the lemon juice. Two thumbs up.
After several months of absence, I’m back again here at FTF. And guess what, it’s my 100th post, an auspicious number if I may say so.
So here’s my entry:
Nature and Sea Restaurant’s Italian-style fish and chips. Fresh and delicious.
Nature and Sea Restaurant sits on the rooftop of a corner-building in the lively Golden Street, aka, St. 278, just across Wat Langka in Phnom Penh. It’s a nice little restaurant, with a view of the wat and the Independence Monument. It is a health-food shop of sorts and all the dishes are prepared using the freshest and pesticide-free ingredients.
In my opinion, they have the best fish-n-chips in town in variety of styles – Australian, Italian, French, Baltic, and English (of course), just to name a few. A set meal of fish-n-chips will set you back at $6.50 but it includes a serving of fresh garden salad (I prefer the mustard dressing every time) and French fries. I also ordered a glass of mango and passionate fruit shake, a very refreshing and healthy drink to complete my meal, for only $1.75. Oh, and if you still have room for it, don’t forget to order crepes for dessert. Highly-recommended.
