Sofitel Phokeethra Phnom Penh

Jul 23, 2012

When the Sofitel Phokeethra Phnom Penh opened its doors in early 2011, it became the first five-star hotel to open in the capital city since the 1990s. And with this sophisticated arrival has come a bevy of enticing dining options, offering dedicated spaces to Italian, Chinese, Japanese and French-inspired fare. River-facing La Coupole has become Phnom Penh’s most decadent spot for Sunday brunch with its imported oysters, caviar, sashimi and hand-carved meats, not to mention the chocolate-fountain at the dessert buffet. Intimate, modern Chinese restaurant Fu Lu Zu boasts the city’s largest array of weekend dim sum, with options like pork and shrimp shu mai and barbecued pork buns; weekdays it serves a Cantonese menu with specialties like crispy pork. A Tuscan chef is responsible for the magic at Do Forni which delivers a mouthwatering tuna carpaccio, an array of Italy-sourced salami and meats and crispy pizzas from a stone oven that proudly stands in full view of the dining room. Finally, there’s top-grade sushi and Kobe beef—delicacies hard to come by in Cambodia—in moody, zen-like Hachi.
