Palm Wine instead of Grape Wine
7th December, 2009
I have been to Cambodia for 2-3 times now and every time I visit Cambodia, I never forget to buy palm wine produced by Confirel.
The first time I visited Cambodia, I was afraid to taste any of the local food, especially on anything that I never had before. But my second time, I was braver and started tasting something different, such as Prohok, sour mango pickle with salt and chili or sour mango with fish sauce .... yum :)
After I visited the Night market, I have introduced to the palm wine, and palm sugar. The first wine I tasted was Pineapple palm wine, which contained only 8% of alcohol. The wine has a little sweetness from Pinepple. It's different from Grapewine in a good way. It's light and fresh, fit well for the lady or whoever does not alcoholic drink.
Another one I tasted was, Jaya, which they called Palm Whisky. Jaya has a great taste for a 40% alcoholic drink. I enjoyed it alot.
Next time you visit Cambodia, don't forget to switch your drinking grape wine habit and try palm wine instead. I guarantee you will like it.
You can find palm wine at any supermarket especially in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, at restaurant, mini mart, etc.
