Jaan Bai ('rice bowl' in Khmer) is Battambang's foodie treat, with a sleekly minimalist interior offset by beautiful French-Khmer tilework lining the wall. The menu likewise is successfully bold. Order a few of the small plates to experience the range of flavours, or go all out with the tasting menu: seven plates plus wine for US$15 per person (minimum two people).
You're eating for a good cause. Jaan Bai trains and employs vulnerable youth through the Cambodia Children's Trust (www.cambodianchildrenstrust.org).
