|Rambutan in the Russian Market, Phnom Penh|
We had our tuktuk driver recommend a good restaurant for lunch where we could get frog. He took us to a pretty decent place by the river. I tried it curried and fried... and it tasted just like chicken. I got Khmer Amok which I can really only describe as a cousin to curry. It had a much cleaner taste than the traditional yellow Indian curry. I also tried a few tastes of a Cambodian chicken soup which had a really nice, delicate flavor.

After the palace it was beer time! We found a place near where we at lunch and grabbed a couple $2 pitchers. Let that sink in. $2. Pitchers.
We took a quick breather after happy hour. I snagged a quick nap and shower and then we hopped up to the hostel bar- - - where they had free beer for an hour! We went back down by the river for dinner and hit a few of the hostel-recommended bars.
