16 Aug 2015 - Day 4

It was only 12.30pm, but we were already exhausted.  Pub Street it shall be for our lunch before our flight back to Singapore.

Here we were, The Blue Pumpkin, just 3 minutes walk from our hotel.
Sivatha Road, Krong Siem Reap, Cambodia.

See through glass doors entrance.

Pushed open the glass doors, it's a bakery shop with a few tables, non-aircon.

At the rear end of the bakery, we saw "cool lounge upstairs" which means aircon available up there, heehee....

The second floor, non-aircon, so no crowd despite of the comfy black bean bags.

Third floor, all white and cool with life saving aircon.

We were hungry diners aiming for mains, so we took the tables.  Other tourists lazed on the white couches/bed with their drinks and little plates served on breakfast trays, how shiok!

The English menu opened up with a mixture of western and local food.

Here were some of the food our team had ordered:
 Congee Bobor Chicken USD4.00
It's rice boiled in broth till soft but with visible grains.

Congee BoBor Seafood USD4.50

Both chicken and seafood congee were served with bean sprouts.

The seafood congee had generous serve of prawns, squids and fish slices.

Khmer Fish Amok USD5.50
This was like our otah but with coconut served with rice.

Beef burger and sweet potato fries with drink USD8.75 (price for double beef patties, not sure about single patty)
I stole one sweet potato fries to try.  It was crispy outside, yummy sweet and soft inside.

Ham and Cheese Quiche USD3.00

Latte USD2.50

Spaghetti Carbonara USD6.00

Fried Rice USD5.25

Angkor Summer USD3.25
It's coconut (omg...), mango and passion fruit sorbet topped with meringues.

Ice Cream Fondue USD12.00
Delightful dessert platter with 7 scoops of ice-cream, 7 scoops of sobert, fruit slices, khmer cookies and of course, chocolate fudge sauce.  Everybody was squeaking with joy!

During the meal, saw the crew changing the pillow cases (can't call them cushions cos they were so huge) and spreads.
Cleaniness guaranteed (probably cleaner than my bed), I must make it a point to nua at this place the next trip I come.

Food quality at The Blue Pumpkin was slightly above average etc. slightly better than our food courts.  The cool white lounge made me felt as if I was relaxing on white clouds ^.^  Quite a nice place to chill and relax.  I would say, don't miss this place if you visit Pub Street.

After lunch we headed to the airport.

Some shopping to kill time.

Found Blue Pumpkin kiosk in airport.

Board up JetStar and we were on our way back to Singapore.

I should be back in June 2016 if no hiccups. Meanwhile, I have slightly more than half a year to save up.
