The Vegan Food
Chi is the all day dining restaurant at Anantara Angkor Resort where guests can enjoy modern Khmer cuisine and a selection of international favourites, breakfast is also served here or can be sent to your room if you wish. During our previous stay, the menus at Anantara Angkor featured a number of vegetarian options and upon request, the chef would adapt these dishes to make them vegan. Prior to our most recent stay we met with the F&B director to discuss adding more vegan and healthy options to the menus. We suggested a number of simple adaptations, using existing ingredients alongside clear menu labelling to make Anantara Angkor even more vegan friendly.
And that’s exactly what they’ve done. It was great to check in and whilst en route to our room have a quick glance at the poolside menu which featured a vegan burger and other vegan options. During our stay we enjoyed a selection of dishes from the multiple menus which were all clearly marked as vegan. We loved the fresh and flavourful pomelo salad, avocado salad and papaya salad that we tried, each with extra cashews and tofu for that protein hit. The Anantara Angkor take on vegan fish and chips was naughty but nice, lightly battered tofu fillets and vegetables served with French fries and a crispy side salad. Whilst our tofu in black bean sauce and veggie Khmer curry were rich and delicious. We also enjoyed a trio of Indian favourites that were clearly marked vegan on the menu, the vegetable korma, chickpea masala and aloo paratha were all very good. Quite simply, you won’t go hungry as a vegan whilst staying at Anantara Angkor.
