Spring Onion. Lum Orng Restaurant – Farm to Table Cuisine in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Siem Reap's first farm to table restaurant by chef Sothea SENG.
Lum Orng Restaurant, Siem Reap, Cambodia, has a philosophy of utilising the freshest ingredients sourced from the restaurant farm and other local suppliers.

Philosophy

In Khmer, Lum Orng means ‘pollen’, a grain that fertilises and gives life. For Sothea Seng, whose farm-to-table philosophy is rooted in seasonality and sustainability, it’s a symbol of growth and regeneration, and a metaphor for his journey as a chef as passionate about preserving Cambodia culinary traditions as exploring new directions.
