Casa Lika

American couple Annette Chan and Aaron Reed, originally from San Francisco, are spicing up Phnom Penh palates with their California-style mexicana recipes at Casa Lika.
ADDRESS
16 Street 136, Phnom Penh, Cambodia


The Overview

Mexican food may seem unrefined to some, but those who've grown up with it are exacting when it comes to the tanginess of a salsa, the flakiness of a tortilla or the precise seasoning of a fajita. So it is with American couple Annette Chan and Aaron Reed, originally from San Francisco, whose California-style mexicana recipes are spicing up Phnom Penh palates with Casa Lika. The restaurant's cozy décor features exposed-brick walls, wooden tables and colorful Diego Rivera–inspired paintings—it's hard to believe the space was once a garage. As for the menu, it's short but sweet, hitting all the essential notes with tacos (both soft and crispy), burritos, quesadillas, fajitas and chiles rellenos. Don't miss the fish tacos, filled with battered white fish, cabbage and sour cream, and the blissfully decadent nachos, piled high with melted cheese and refried beans.
