Here are some more photos from Ta Prohm, the 12th century temple near Siem Reap, Cambodia. Enjoy.
It was also after our visit to Ta Prohm that ST and I were finally able to get some lunch. Keep in mind we’ve been going since very early that morning at this point. We ate at a little place along the temple route, and the food was pretty tasty. My basil chicken was good but unusual. In the States, if lemongrass is used in a recipe, it’s either as a paste or the stalk is smashed and removed prior to serving. This dish had sliced lemongrass, which I basically ate around. But it did add an intense shot of lemongrass flavor, which blended well with the basil.
Check back tomorrow to find out about Banteay Kdei.
