Feature of Cambodia’s Breakfast in “Breakfast Around The World Journal” by Osaka Gas

(Report in English follows after Japanese)













On Tuesday, 24 June 2021, our Honorary Consulate facilitated the “Breakfast Around The World Journal” interview by Osaka Gas Japan.


“Breakfast Around The World Journal” is a project by Osaka Gas Japan, in which every month, foreigners living in the Kansai area, are being interviewed to introduce about their country’s signature breakfast item and breakfast culture. The project first started in September last year, and it has already featured breakfast from countries like Taiwan, India, Russia and so on. As overseas travel remains restricted due to the Covid-19 pandemic, through this project it hopes to allow people in Japan to understand more about the culture of other countries.


And this time, the chance has come for Cambodia’s breakfast to be featured!


For the interview, we specially invited the director of the Khmer Student Association in Kansai (KSAK), Mr. Tieng Chansocheat, to share about Cambodia’s breakfast. Mr. Tieng is a native Cambodian living in Osaka and knows better about Cambodian food than anyone of us. We have also specifically requested for the interview to be held at our Honorary Consulate office, to bask in the “Cambodia” atmosphere more.


The interview was done in a “question-and-answer” style, and Mr. Tieng shared not just about Cambodian breakfast and culture, but also on his reason for coming to Japan and life living in Osaka. To provide a clearer explanation, the map of Cambodia and guide book displayed at our office had also came in handy.


The article on Cambodian breakfast will be featured on Osaka Gas Japan’s homepage from mid-August ( To find out what kind of breakfast is eaten in Cambodia, be sure to check it out!


After the interview, we also took the opportunity to have a quick chit-chat session with Mr. Tieng to find out about the well-being of the Cambodian students in Kansai area, the association’s activities, and also some information about Cambodia. We hope to further deepen this close working relationship between our Honorary Consulate and KSAK, and to cooperate even more together in the near future.
