Pepper from Cambodia

I’m not certain for the rest of Cambodia but in Siem Reap, my impression in such a short visit is that – pepper from Kampot province is the pride of Cambodia. That observation came from personal encounters of the hundreds of packs of dried black, red and white peppercorns in the market and to the viands I’ve partaken with clusters of fresh peppercorns (yes still green and still attached to the vine). Moreover, a hotel in Siem Reap welcomed me with black peppercorns wrapped in a tiny weaved box of pandan.
