Toto Ice Cream

Our friend Toto has an ice cream store in Cambodia that's named after him. The grand opening happened on the second or third day we were in Phnom Penh, and it seemed after that not a day would go by that we didn't stop in for a visit. The homemade ice cream was phenomenal and highlighted the exotic flavors of the country--such as durian, passion fruit, and mango--but I also couldn't get enough of the cute decor and vibe. As background music, they played acoustic versions of top 40 songs like Usher's OMG which sounded surprisingly pretty!

the sampler: three scoops of lamut-flavored ice cream for the locals (sweet steamed vegetable is the best I can describe it), blueberry cheesecake, green tea, chocolate, coconut-jackfruit, durian, and one that tasted like Baileys

Welcome back! That shop is adorable - totally not what I would have expected to find in Cambodia (which is still on my bucket list).

You guys must go to TOTO if you get a chance! While I was in Cambodia this was a must for me-- I basically went daily. The service was really cute, the ice cream was amazing, and the service was nice as well. I can't wait until I can go back to Cambodia one day -- I enjoyed flavors I normally wouldn't be able to get in the states as easily such as Durian, Passion Fruit, Guava, Red Bean, Taro, Pandan, and my absolutely favorite was Soursop
