Is there a place to eat Eastern European food in Siem Reap? Yes there is and it is called Danube Restaurant.
I’m a huge fan of Serbia and Serbs in general, so when I learned that legendary Serbians of Food Explorer would be coming to town I was more than a little bit excited. Would they be bringing rakia though?

The Danube Restaurant
No matter who you are it is more than likely that you will crave food from your home country, or at least region, so it was via my new Serbian friends that we ended up at Danube Restaurant. Danube is ran by a Slovakian lady and her son, and in usual times is also a guesthouse. These are not usual times, so it is mainly a restaurant now. In case you need a geography lesson the Danube is a huge river that runs through much of Eastern Europe.
What is the menu at the Danube Restaurant?
Lots of Slovakian and Eastern Europe delights and very meat and cabbage centric! The best thing I probably had here was the sour cabbage and pork soup. Everything here is very fresh and cooked as best as to their ability with the ingredients available in Siem Reap.
What is the service like at Danube?
Being ran by a Slovakian she takes customer service very seriously. When I wanted a vodka soda they didn’t have soda, so actually went out to buy some. This seems like such a small thing, but in Siem Reap it is a huge touch. We also purchased cabbage in the hope they would make us salma, a stuffed cabbage dish of legendary proportions!
