Magic stick ice cream in Siem Reap, Cambodia

Magic stick ice cream in Siem Reap, Cambodia

During mys stay in Siem Reap I have found something like nothing I have ever seen or tried before. It’s not a tube and it’s not ice cream. It is tube ice cream. Also known as cornflour ice cream or Magic stick ice cream in Siem Reap, Cambodia.  Made out of cornflour these tubes are handmade by one of the staffs mothers, shaped into funny looking tubes and filled with soft delicious vanilla ice cream.
We passed by a few tourists on our way to find some street food the first day we arrived in Siem Reap and they had these tubes in their hands. but it was dark and they were at opposite side of the street so I thought that could’ve been a Shawarma or a kebab or something.

Then we walked passed this small cafe on a corner just off the Pub street where most restaurants are. And we found it.

The tourists as well as locals seem to appreciate it and be surprised and amused all the way from the counter to delivery, so am I. The staff has heard it before. But it’s ice cream in a tube. It is bound to be funny.  What an amazing way of putting yourself on the market! Why didn’t I think of that?

The magic stick ice cream became one of our main highlights of eating out. For only 2 USD you can enjoy a magic stick ice cream and laugh at others big eyes as you pass them by. It sure made our evening. If you are ever in Siem Reap it is a must!
