Susana and I just came back from the Temple Restaurant. The food was your typical fare – duck curry for me and sweet and sour fish soup for Susana – but a bonus was the free Apsara dance.
There were six dances demonstrated. Half of the dances appeared very similar to the dance we saw in Ubud. The music was no where near as hectic but similar otherwise in nature. The other three dances were combining male and female dancers and tended to have a lot more life to them. One dance – the peacock – involved a male and female dance in peacock costume that was quite fun to watch.
While not as elaborate as the dance in Ubud – it was free after all – it was still a great bonus to our dinner. If you are in Siem Reap, consider having dinner at the Temple Restaurant or any of the other restaurants in town that give a dinner show.
