Prahok (fish paste) Dip and Vegetables - Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Our first meal in Cambodia consisted of fresh vegetables and prahok (heavily fermented fish paste dip). We ordered it because it sounded interesting and authentic. The waiter was hesitant, and asked us if we were sure we REALLY wanted to order this. He explained that most foreigners don't like its smell and often leave it untouched. We decided to try it anyway, and actually enjoyed it blended with chili and lime. A wake up call for the taste buds! Read more about Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
