Rikitikitavi – Kampot, Cambodia

Named after the fearless little mongoose in Rudyard Kipling’s short story, Rikitikitavi is the place to stay if you’re visiting Kampot.

Located right on the eastern bank of the Kampot River, the rooms were immaculate and super stylish, and the food was simply amazing!

No more words, I’ll let the pictures do the talking!

The room, with complimentary tennis racquet style electronic fly swatter on the table!

The room

Touk sait koh – minced beef in pastry jackets served with sweet chilli dipping sauce

Crepes, with freshly cut lime and locally sourced Bokor honey

Baguette and eggs

This cheeky little gecko was intent on cleaning up after us!

The clean-up crew!

Bacon cheese burger (would give some of the burger joints in Hobart a run for their money!)

Beef loc lac

Satay skewers

Saraman – spiced Khmer beef curry made with peanuts, herbs and spices

Crepes with banana and dark chocolate shavings!

The other place well worth a visit is the Epic Arts Cafe in the middle of town. Both dishes were very tasty, and as a bonus all proceeds go towards helping the local deaf and disabled community! Their menu can be found here.

Epic BLT – with caramelised onion, mayonnaise and tomato chutney, all on toasted Kampot pepper bread

Chicken bagel with garlic aioli, shaved red onion, carrot and tomato salad
