Let’s talk about the culinary genius behind these menus, Executive Sous Chef Dorn Doeurt, or as we like to call him, Chef DD. This Khmer cuisine maestro hails from Siem Reap and knows the ins and outs of Cambodian food better than anyone. From traditional Royal Khmer dishes to modern Khmer gastronomy, he’s got it all covered.
Chef DD spills the beans on his inspiration, “I wanted these menus to be a perfect intro to Khmer cuisine, highlighting the freshest local ingredients. We’re talking about locally-sourced meat, fish, spices, and even chocolate. Trust me, these dishes are so unique that even the pickiest foodies will be raving about them.”
What’s on the menu?
Well, they’ve categorised it by decades. You can dive into the 1930s with “The Reign of King Sisowath Norodom” for $80++, or groove through the 1950s with “The Grand Renaissance” for $50++. Feel like a ’60s vibe? “The Golden Age” is yours for $60++, or you can go all out with the ’90s and “The Raffles Grand Legacy” for $120++. You can even pair your meal with some fantastic wines or pick and choose your favorite dishes à la carte.
Now, let’s talk about the star of the show: the “Raffles Grand Legacy” menu. Picture this, Phlea salmon with lemongrass, coriander and a spicy lime sorbet to start. Then, a duck consommé with straw mushrooms, eggplant, and morning glory. Don’t forget the legendary 1932 fish amok with kroeung curry paste, coconut milk, and black sticky rice.
And that’s just the beginning. The Angus tenderloin, Cambodian cheese platter, colonel with a refreshing lime sorbet, and chocolate and ginger truffles are all part of this gastronomic adventure.
Joseph Colina, General Manager of Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor, is thrilled about the menus. “These extraordinary tasting menus celebrate Cambodian cuisine and give it a global stage. We’re sure it will win over many hearts.”
