Eating at Spoons isn’t just good for your belly, it also does great things for the local community. The social enterprise, nestled in the Wat Damnak area, was set up by non-profit organisation EGBOK (Everything’s Gonna Be OK), which aims to change the lives of underprivileged young adults from all around Cambodia by providing them training and job placements in the hospitality industry. The focus on local talent isn’t solely about people, though, authentic Cambodian dishes are also the stars of the show. Experience popular street food snacks such as Num Krok (crispy coconut cream and spring onion dumplings), or some classic Khmer home cooking like a grilled and deboned mackerel served with coconut turmeric rice. Sustainability is a major part of Spoons’ business model as well – all profits go towards funding their training programs, and the building design features bamboo architecture to highlight the idea of environmentally conscious construction.
