Although Phnom Penh has countless options for eating and drinking. Every time I hear about a new cafe or restaurant, I hear myself saying, “Great, I’ll have to try that some day”. But some day never comes, and I find myself at the same old places week in week out.
That was one of the reasons I decided to start blogging about Phnom Penh. If I want to keep writing new things, I’m going to have to keep trying new places, right?
So today, the Boy and I decided to head to Gasolina for lunch. I’d heard of Gasolina a couple of times and driven past a few times but hadn’t really heard whether it was any good. Only one way to find out then!
When I saw those daybeds I almost wished I had a novel to curl up with.
We ended up settling down on the shady terrace.
I just ordered a starter, as I wasn’t very hungry. The boy ordered a barbequed beef steak, which they barbeque in front of you.
My starter was huge!
Well, at least I thought so until I saw the Boy’s BBQ. When he ordered we were debating which side to order, but we needed of worried because it comes with ALL the sides.
It was a feast and all for the grand sum of US$8! (My fried potato starter was $3.50)
We were both stuffed at the end of it, but couldn’t resist the Chocolate Mousse, so we managed to squeeze this bad boy in too!
