We found our tuk-tuk driver having breakfast with other drivers when we exited the temples at Banteay Srei. He invited us to join him and he introduced us to a fantastic morning soup.

It consisted of a subtle yellow curry fish broth with fresh rice noodles, paper-thin chopped banana blossom, cucumber, and cabbage and topped off with a spoonful of dark sweet soup. A bowl of bitter herbs and long beans was passed around the table as the final touch.
