Just a short-distance walking from Old Market/Pub Street, you will find an elegant international restaurant called Genevieve's that serves Western and Asian food. After a full day exploring the Angkor Wat temple complex, we wanted a relaxing night out in town.

Genevieve's is quite popular with the tourists, so we had a wait for a table at a bar next door.  But Australian ex-pat owner, who's wife is the restaurant's namesake, was courteous and promised us a good table soon.We started with local beer for Keith and I tried a Bansai cocktail made with pineapple, rum, and mint. I don't recall the exact name of the drink, but it was more smoothie-like than expected.

We shared a started of Fresh Vegetable Spring Rolls, that were served in a light peanut dipping sauce.  The filling was all crispy cabbage, carrots, and cucumber.  Refreshing for a hot summer's night.

Keith ordered the Khmer Beef Salad, which was pieces of grilled flank steak served with a salad of green beans, tomatoes, and bean sprouts.

Loving the Fish Amok I had the night before, I ordered it again.  The fish was tender in the coconut curry sauce, and the fresh bok choy was sauteed lightly in oyster sauce to keep that crunchy bite.

Overall, we had another nice light Khmer dinner.  It was a nice break from all the spicier foods of Thailand.  Other Western items including Australian steaks are also available on the menu.
