Nom banh chok

Also called 'Khmer noodles,' the nom banh chok is a popular breakfast. It consists of rice noodles topped with tender green beans, cucumber, banana flower, onion and herbs and will comes with sauce on top to complete the set. There are two kinds: green curry and fish sauce. Almost all the morning markets and street vendors are selling it all across Cambodia. Some markets have mats on the floor, which you can sit on them while eating.
Sautéed frogs

This is a very popular quick eat in Cambodia, the proof is that you see them just everywhere such as in street stalls as well as some restaurants serve fried frog legs. And yes, I know chicken. They are also crispy. Sautéed frogs are usually stuffed with lemongrass and other herbs, which enhances its flavor and could be eaten as it is or with rice.
Snake hatchlings and sautéed insects

Yes, Cambodians love those things as it is rooted in their history and culture. Cambodians learned to eat all possible sources of protein during the Khmer Rouge regime, a horrible period in which they had nothing to eat. Fast to this round: Cambodians still take these types of foods, not as a matter of survival but as part of its gastronomic tradition, as a traveler you will find them in street markets and you can try then just as locals do. They are more popular in Siem Reap and sometimes you will find them in Angkor Wat.
The baby snake and insects are cooked and sold in street stalls. Snakes are strung on bamboo sticks while the sautéed insects (spiders, beetles, grasshoppers and crickets) are put into plastic bags or buckets.
Num Krok (Khmer rice cake)

The rice cakes are very common in Cambodia, but what is interesting is that Num Krok is tucked into a bamboo pole, so you have to peel to eat the cake. The rice cake sold in any market and is made by mixing rice with grated coconut, coconut milk and red beans.
