Restaurants in Phnom Penh: StoneGrill

The dining scene in Phnom Penh is so diverse it's becoming hard to choose where to eat. Our family has a couple of "default" restaurants which we go to when we are not in the mood to explore new restaurants.

Last Saturday, we were in an adventurous mood. We gave StoneGrill a go.

If I am not mistaken, this dining concept is a first of its kind here in Phnom Penh. You grill your food on a very hot rock/stone. These natural volcanic stones are oven-heated up to 400°C and they can cook the food up to 30-40 minutes.

StoneGrill has a very extensive menu. For variety on our table, we only ordered one "on the stone" food and tried their Japanese food as well.

{I like this decor}

{Gyuniku Teppanyaki - Angus Beef with Garlic Rice $12}

{Fries $3.50}

{Seafood Combination on The Stone $23}


We also ordered Teppanyaki Rice ($5) and Kaisen Teppanyaki - combination seafood with garlic rice ($12).

The food was great! But I find the portion to be small (particularly the Kaisen and Gyuniku Teppanyaki). I liked the fries because even though the cut was large, it was still crunchy.

The place is very nice with a view of the Tonle Sap River. And the staff was attentive and very pleasant.

We planned to go back and try the Alaskan King Crab but when I checked the price ($160 for about 6pcs of claws), I almost fainted. Hahaha!

It's surprising to me to find the price of dining out in PP is almost the same as the ones here. I would have thought that since PP's cost of living is lower there the prices would be much lower than that. I'm wrong apparently.

Photo Cache, I know what you mean. I always compare PP and Manila's dining out scene and I think PP is even a little more expensive if not the same.
