Gourmet note #3: The Blue Pumpkin, bakery and ice cream parlor, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Towards the end of a long cycling tour, it was the thought of refreshing ice-cream scoops that kept us going. I am not an ice-cream lover but I have to admit: those at the Blue Pumpkin are simply delicious.

My son chose the candied pineapple flavor, my 6-year old daughter preferred a classical, tasty raspberry sorbet. Exotic flavors of green lime with kaffir leave or ginger with roasted black sesame are my favorite ones. My baby loved them all, happily!

The Blue Pumpkin has shops in Siem Reap but also in Phnom Penh (looking forward to visit them in the capital city). More info: www.tbpumpkin.com
