Lucky Supermarket

Lucky Supermarket on Sihanouk Boulevard (downtown Phnom Penh)
Foreigner friendly, large selection of imported and organic goods

The Sihanouk branch of Lucky Supermarket attracts people from all corners of the city. As a newcomer, this is a great choice as your first supermarket. They cater to all expat groups: for westerners, Koreans, Japanese, Chinese and Indians. Any time of day, it is a fascinating window into Phnom Penh’s expat diversity.

Thai Huot Supermarket

Thai Huot supermarket Phnom Penh
Pretty cashiers, frozen berries, tall boy beers and more

This supermarket seems popular with international school teachers, Japanese families and random expats. They have everything you need (awesome bread, good meat selection, tons of cheeses) in a well-organised space resulting in an always pleasant shopping experience. One thing they stock that others don’t is ground and deli chicken – for those on lean meat diets, this is a winner.

Royal Mart

Royal Mart Supermarket Phnom Penh
Meets, cheese, western bread, tall boy beers and even apartment rentals!

Just down the road from Angkor Mart is a side-street alternative with all the same trappings but a much more neighborly feel. It’s a family-run operation that also rents out apartments and serves as pillar in the community. If you live near here, this will become your regular.
