“Stop the car!!!” This was the second time I asked our guide/driver Mr. Samithy to make a sudden halt. The other instance was when I ran out the vehicle to photograph an elephant crossing the street. We were on our way to Beng Mealea, an enchanting temple ruin about an hour and a half drive away from town to the rural area of Siem Reap.
Our guide must think I’m hyper or crazy, but I was intrigued to find out what was cooking inside the bamboo poles being sold along the roadside stalls. The bamboo delicacy turned out to be kralan. It is sticky rice cake made with beans, palm sugar, grated coconut and coconut milk. First steamed and then roasted over charcoal. Cost is three pieces for one dollar.
