Lunch took us to the  Phnom Penh restaurant of Lotus Blanc, which is  a vocational training center in the hospitality industry. It trains  ex-street children; children who were found scouring the local area’s garbage dump to survive. The Lotus Blanc restaurant is  a French NGO, “PSE-Pour un Sourire d’Enfant” (For the Smile of a Child), founded in 1993 by Marie-France and Christian des Pallières to help underprivileged children in Phnom Penh.

There are over 300 disadvantaged youths from poor families every year, provided with training and the necessary practical skills to work in the hospitality industry. Lotus Blanc  has two practice restaurants in Phnom Penh.

It is a very nice restaurant with great food, supporting such an excellent cause in providing work and training to young disadvantaged youth. It provides hands on training in both French and Khmer cuisine.

Lunch at a special Phnom Penh restaurant,the Lotus Blanc Practice Restaurant for traditional  cuisine.

We enjoyed our meal immensely. The young waiters, shy and smiling, and so ready to please were a pleasure to have serve us. I only thought to take pics of three of the  five courses served for lunch. I was too busy enjoying my meal.  The Lotus Blanc restaurant also serves good French wines and cold beer.

The Buffet meal adjacent in the restaurant looked very inviting. It was obviously very popular,  judging by the number of people who came in whilst we were lunching.
