Are you a foodie like me who loves to try new and affordable places? Well, I’ve got good news for you! There’s a new Tex-Mex place in town that you should try and it’s called iViva! located on Sisowath Quay, just in front of Titanic Restaurant. They serve Mexican and Khmer foods, where you can have a wide range of choices from tacos, quesadilla, burritos, to beek loklak and fish amok for the local lovers. Prices range from $1.50-$15 depending on the food you’ll order, and I’d say it’s really a good value for money.

After the boat party yesterday with my colleagues, hubby and I headed to iViva! to grab a late dinner. For only $5.50, he’s got himself a nice plate of baby back ribs with french fries, and salad.

While I ordered a plate of beef tacos, fried rice, and salad for $4.50. Yummy!

I loved my food especially the fresh tortilla shell they used for my tacos and the taste is wonderful. Every Saturday they also have a Margarita night where you can enjoy a glass of Margarita for only $1.50. Cheap!

On my point of view, Phnom Penh is becoming more and more promising. I’ve been here for almost 5 years now and I’d say that there are so many places that I haven’t tried and explored yet. Every now and then, a new business will sprout, each of them has their target market and with the growing population of  “can affords” in the country,  eating beautifully presented foods become a part of  fashion.

So, better put this on your list and tag your friends with you. Bon apetit!
