Daily at 8:30am Duration 3 Hours

$39 USD per Adult $29 USD Child 4-15

Tour Operated by Tuktuk

The Essentials:

See how Cambodians wake up and start their day on our morning market and breakfast tour by tuktuk.  Discover hidden neighborhoods, sip on some local coffee, and experience our vibrant Khmer culture – you’ll definitely want to skip your hotel breakfast for this!


This tour includes food and drinks at 5-6 stops where you’ll enjoy a selection of sit-down restaurants, street-food stalls, a market, and a cafe.

Group Size

Small groups of 2-8 people per tour.

Start & End Location

Hotel pick-up is included from centrally located hotels. The tour will end at a cafe near the Russian Market.

Cancellation Policy

Reservations cancelled 24 hours or more before your tour start time are fully refundable.

Dietary Requirements​

Fish sauce is an essential ingredient in Khmer cuisine.  This tour will be difficult for those who cannot eat fish sauce, and additionally, meat broth. We visit small, family-run eateries that specialize in one thing, so vegetarian substitutions are not available at most places. Please contact us prior to booking if you have any questions or concerns.

What You'll Do:

Hotel Pick-up is Provided

You will be picked up at your hotel by tuktuk and whisked away to our favorite local neighborhoods around Phnom Penh for an authentic experience.

Coffee & Noodles

Start your morning at a favorite local hang-out that’s been serving the neighborhood breakfast for over 15 years. Sip on a selection of local coffee served alongside a bowl of savory noodle soup.

Local Wet Market

Stroll through a bustling open-air wet market, try what’s in-season, and walk away with a handmade souvenir…on us! Along the way, meet Sister Mao who sources freshly grown herbs to create her own fresh curry paste.

Pork & Rice

Visit Brother Salin and his family-run shop that serves up a classic Khmer breakfast. We’ll grab a plastic chair and sit street-side for some freshly grilled pork & rice served with homemade pickles and a rich bowl of soup.

Savory Turmeric Crepes

These popular savory crepes are made with rice milk and turmeric, which give them their vibrant yellow color. Then they’re stuffed with ground pork, bean sprouts, and dried shrimp before we wrap them by hand with lettuce and local herbs. Don’t forget the homemade dipping sauce!

Award-Winning Coffee

Finish with a signature coffee recipe that won this hip cafe the National Barista Gold Medal in Cambodia! The tour will end at the cafe, which is within walking distance to the Russian Market. Your guide can suggest how to get to your next destination.

Plus More Surprises!

* This itinerary is subject to changes and adjustments based on daily vendor operations and availability, but it will always be awesome.

About This Tour:

Perhaps one of the most storied capital cities in the world, Phnom Penh has risen and fell multiple times since it was first established in the 5th century. The bustling city you see today, developing at warp speed and home to over 2 million people, was a very different place just decades ago – and many locals still prefer their traditional way of life.

Those traditions are still strong, and best seen exploring our vibrant local streets in the morning. Try a selection of freshly prepared sesame donuts, one of Cambodia’s most popular morning snacks. Discover our favorite Bai Sach Chrouk (pork with rice) vendor in Phnom Penh to see why it’s THE breakfast for locals. And watch Banh Xeo (savory stuffed pancakes) prepared fresh-to-order, radiating with their classic turmeric-yellow color. And don’t forget the local coffee!

While the city is known for its markets, the truth is that many of them these days cater only to tourists. But traditions abound if you know where to find them, and we’ll visit a less-traveled market to see what locals buy and walk away with a souvenir of our own.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Come hungry because you will get a lot of food! We are not a tasting tour, we provide much more than a full meal’s worth of food so we recommend you skip breakfast before the tour and arrive hungry!

This tour also includes coffee during the tour, plus bottled water.

We have many happy customers who do all of our tours in each city! We have designed our tours to ensure that each dish is unique to each tour and there aren’t ANY repeats. This tour is extremely different from our evening tour and joining both tours would give you huge insight into the local foodie scene.

We encourage you to pick the tours that best fit your itinerary and we offer a 10% discount if booking more than one tour.

Yes! You’ll get a promo code in your confirmation email that will give you a 10% discount on all future Lost Plate tours. It doesn’t matter if the tour is in the same city or a different city, we want to keep feeding you as long as you let us. Also, children ages 4 through 15 receive a discount on all tours (3 & under are free).

Our tours have been designed to accommodate as many diets as possible while still remaining authentic and delicious.  We prepare our tour menu beforehand, so please let us know if you have special requirements when you book.

Please note that Khmer cuisine features a lot of fish sauce as a natural salt (don’t worry, it’s not fishy), which is the most common issue we follow-up with guests about.

Vegetarian: We can accommodate this, but please understand that substitutions are not available at the mom-n-pop places we visit. If you decide to join, you’ll be eating the same dish minus the meat. Your options will expand if you’re able to eat fish sauce and meat broth. This tour will be extremely limited for vegans.

Fun fact: there’s no Khmer word for vegetarian, even saying “no-meat diet” would still include fish/oyster sauces and meat-based broths, so saying vegetarian in Khmer would actually require a long-winded explanation. The closest thing to it, and how we explain it to our vendors, is “temple-food” which is the diet Buddhist monks observe, built around as little suffering and negative karma as possible.

Food allergies: This tour is adaptable to those who are gluten intolerant. Please let us know if you have any other allergies or restrictions.

Bookings cancelled 1 day (24 hours) or more before your tour are fully refundable (100% refund). Bookings cancelled within 24 hours notice are not refundable. Cancellations must be communicated by email to info@lostplate.com or by phone. If you would like to reschedule your tour with less than 24 hours notice, we will need to charge 50% of your total since we are unable to fill your spots at short notice.

Our minimum is 2 and maximum is 8. There’s no flag to follow, or megaphone, or tacky uniforms. It’s small enough to be intimate, but big enough to get away with trying several dishes at each stop. You’ll get plenty of face-time with the experts. Bottom line is, you’ll follow the guide through a super-local experience and make friends along the way.

The tour starts at 8:30am, and we offer free hotel pick-up at central locations. When you complete your booking online, you’ll be able to provide your hotel name and address (or you can notify us later if you’re not sure where you’re staying yet) and we will send you an estimated pick-up time the day before your tour, which is typically between 8:15-8:45am. We’ll meet you at the lobby with a Lost Plate sign .

The tour will end at a cafe near to the Russian Market. Your guide will be able to assist you about how to get wherever you’d like to go next.
