Cambodia - Friends the Restaurant

Located in Phnom Penh, Friends restaurant is another place offering vegetarian options. There are 2 pages full of dishes available for you to choose from the menu.
I guess the special part of the restaurant is that it is a non-profit organization that helps kids get off the street by providing them housing, education and vocational training. Hence everyone at the restaurant works really hard, to learn some skills and to get out of the poverty cycle. I thought it is a very meaningful project started by the founder.
I loved the tapas served here.

Sun Dried Tomato Hummus on Cripsy Wanton Wrappers USD 4
This is one of the most popular dishes served. A mix of chickpeas and sun dried tomatoes blended together with some seasoning. Then it is served on fried wanton wrappers and decorated with fresh cherry tomatos and basil leaves. Definitely a great appetizer! I guess i'll try to cook this dish too!
