The 999 restaurant on Street 184

There are a group of local restaurants located on Street 184 inbetween Norodom and Street 19. I have never taken too much notice to them as they look like the standard teenager fare, a bit too sugary and loud.

But when an Irish friend kept raving about a drink he could only describe as “lemony creamy goodness”, I knew I had to try.

And it was completely worth it.

Described on the menu as “Lemon Tea with Sweet Milk”, the drink is shockingly good. It reminded me of an orange creamsicle, which is never a bad thing.

The rest of the menu is quite ordinary with a notable Khmer version of banh cuon with shredded egg and julianned carrots but in all honesty, the reason to head to this restaurant is for the drink.
