Phnom Penh & Gastronomy: Did you ever try the famous lobster bisque from Khéma ?

If you’re looking for a French and unique culinary experience, look no further than Khéma! Phnom Penh is now home to a rich and diverse gastronomic scene, offering a feast for the senses and a journey into the heart of local and western cuisine. Today we tried the Lobster bisque, made in Khéma, a deliciously refined and gourmandise dish.  A menu with the sounds of traditional and refined French gastronomy, it is under the subdued lights and surrounded by the colourful Happy Steff paintings of Khéma Pasteur that you will enjoy this unique lobster bisque in the capital. The word bisque has a fascinating history, dating back to the 17th century. It is thought to have originated in the northern Spanish province of Vizcaya, where it represented a soup made from pieces of shellfish, called “bisco” in Provençal.  In reference to the two different ways in which this soup is cooked, the prefix “bis” means two, which is pretty cool! The shellfish are first cooked over a high heat in their shells, then simmered in white wine with aromatic herbs.    With its sunny brick colour, Khéma Pasteur’s lobster bisque is a real treat! It surprises and warms the palate with every bite. The incredible Made In Khéma bisque is prepared with the freshest local lobster and is available in a variety of ways. It is cooked with white wine and tomato purée, and with it, a gourmet, melt-in-the-mouth ravioli pancake. And it’s served with a slice of deliciously cheesy, seafood-filled au gratin bread! So, for a cosy evening or a lively lunch, in a colourful setting and warm atmosphere with smiling, passionate staff, the lobster bisque at Khéma Pasteur is the dish to choose from the menu at least once!  Engage with Us   Subscribe to Thalias Newsletter: Enjoy exclusive offers, event invitations, and culinary insights. Subscribe Here  Make a Reservation at any Khéma with ease and discover instant booking perks.  Discover More: For a deeper dive into our culinary universe. Visit Our Website
