I have eaten out many times. During such times, I have been to countless number of restaurants, street shops and markets and seen a lot of menu cards. But, nothing was as thick as the ones I saw at some restaurants around the old market area of Siem Reap in Cambodia. It was a genuine feeling of surprise when I was handed my menu card. Even other tourists had the same reaction. Some would even ask what it was.
These menu cards look like thick files/folder from an office cabinet. Not only does it have a big assorted menu of dishes, but also includes alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Each item on their menu comes with a photograph. This is the reason why the menu becomes bulky, but I think it is a great way to help the tourist visualize the food and thus helps in selling more. If you are ever in Cambodia, this is one culinary experience you have to experience.
P.S. In case you are wondering, the food in some of these restaurants is really good.
