French falafel à la Cambodia

Variety is the spice of life! Though I’m in Cambodia, I’m lunching à la Française Méditerranée. Falafel I’ve tried to eat in Australia was dry, bland and resembled something off a Pratt cardboard factory production line. Not this! I am now a falafel convert. These falafel balls are seasoned generously, to fully emphasise the flavours of cumin, coriander and pepper. The sesame seeds, the thin slices of tomato, the shredded lettuce … it all comes together nicely. Even the usually neutral yoghurt has some balls about it. And the “balloon” of freshly baked Lebanese bread… c’est délicieux!

Served as a tasting plate, the falafel and Lebanese bread costs US$3.15 at Aroma, a neat little restaurant at the Royal Palace end of Street 13, Phnom Penh.
