"The real hunger is that of discovery"
Ines Samaai's classy cuisine comes with a vibrant, innovative touch influenced by the magic spices and fragrant herbs of Kep and the Kampot / Bokor region. Pepper, curry powder, fresh lemongrass and basil enlight the fresh seafood and splendid meat from the best bio-farms.
Cambodia's markets and local Ingredients, combined with my South African heritage and strong background in classical French culinary techniques have inspired me to create an eclectic menu capturing the freshness and aromatics of Khmer cooking, the bold and creative flavors of South African cuisine and the balance and finesse of modern European kitchens to create a unique and adventurous French-Asian culinary experience for you to enjoy.
