Another non-newbie to the blog... Sushi Tei. My mom and I ate here for dinner on our first day (which was the same day as lunch at Marmalade). What can I say, we don't waste any time hitting up our fave spots!
We pretty much ordered without the menu, except for the cod kaarage which I glanced at on the monthly specials page. Take note on the half dragon roll; the regular roll has 8 pieces, and the half order has a friendly 4. Our server said this was a recent addition - new to us, that's for sure. When dinner is just as wonderful as anticipated, there's not much else to ask for.

The next few posts will be from my recent trip to Singapore. For those of you who don't know, I used to live there, so a few of these entries will be from my favorite foodie places that have already been blogged about. This first one is no exception, it's my re-visit to Marmalade Pantry after quite a few years! (I went to Singapore last year, but didn't get to eat at Marmalade on that trip)
I ordered what used to be my "usual", the warm spinach salad. If all salads tasted this great, I would consider it for every lunch meal ;) Spinach, tomatoes, onions, pine nuts, bacon, poached egg and fried mozzarella - that's pretty much drool worthy for a salad in my book. My mom got a beetroot and goat cheese mix that tasted excellent as well. You don't want to feel like you're "missing out" when you order a salad, and at Marmalade it's the opposite... You almost feel like you're missing out if you don't get a salad! And no, I don't think I'm exaggerating here. Happy healthy salad eating, everyone!

I'm a little sad that my Cambodia posts are coming to an end! Even though the trip is over, I was re-living it through my blog entries... Aileen and I ate at AHA on my last night in Siem Reap. We took our time, ordered wine, and recapped the trip over our flavorful (Khmer + Western) food. It's owned by the same people as Hotel de la Paix, but AHA is tucked away in one of the main alley's of the old market area, which is just nearby. I'd suggest it as an alternative to eating at the hotel; same quality in food, service and atmosphere. We sat outside of the modern, tapas meets wine bar concept. We learned that AHA is Khmer for "food."
*I've just decided that I will share the restaurant pictures first, and post our dinner in the next entry. Enjoy!

Hotel de la Paix is Siem Reap's most stylish hotel, it offers guests outstanding levels of luxury and world class dining & spa facilities. In Cambodia, who would have thought! For such a fancy hotel, you can still feel the grace and charm of the Khmer people. The property grounds are a feast for the eyes, there's something to look at in every nook and cranny - it is designed very well. After witnessing the sunrise at Angkor Wat, Aileen and I went to Cafe de le Paix for some pastries and coffee. It's the hotel's "gourmet deli for global nomads."
