Steven Corner BBQ

Steven Corner BBQ is one of the most popular restaurants near Pub Street in Siem Reap. It is located along the main road and is just beside Japan Home. For those who are not yet initiated into Khmer cuisine, you'll enjoy the food choice here at Steven Corner BBQ. There's also some fresh ingredients choices, similar to our "paluto."


Having tasted the popular beef "loklak," we can't help but order it again. Beef Loklak is stir-fry beef in oyster sauce with onions and seasoned with salt and pepper. There's also a chicken version of loklak.


Even if I swear not to eat too much chicken (hello allergy!), I can't help but order this mouthwatering Chicken BBQ. There's a downside though, you need to order some appetizer because it takes ages before it was served since they just grill the chicken when you order it. Also, it was an hour or two after lunch when we went to Steven Corner so there's no other diners except us.

The chicken bbq comes with a lime-mint sauce and it is not spicy. It is notable though that Khmer cuisine is mostly flavored with herbs and not spicy.


Each meal cost less than $3usd although there are pricier ones on the menu. Not bad.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
