Eunice Olsen's favourite meal may come as a surprise to many. 

Not only is it a far cry from fancy fare, its setting is most rural, reports The New Paper.

"Whenever I'm in Udong, Cambodia, I'd follow the locals to one of the town's authentic outdoor restaurants.

"All of us would sit at a long bench with hammocks around us," recalled the 36-year-old local actress-host over lunch with M last week at Indochine Waterfront Restaurant at the Asian Civilisations Museum.

"It's simple. It's what the Cambodian eats. There would be rice, a whole fried chicken, fish which you eat with a sauce, and soup with vegetables and ants," Olsen explained.

According to Olsen, it is a Cambodian delicacy.

The former Nominated Member of Parliament became enamoured with Cambodia after co-producing and starring in 3:50, a hard-hitting film about sex trafficking that will start screening at The Arts House from April 12, as part of the multidisciplinary arts centre's Frame x Frame series.

3:50 was shot entirely in Phnom Penh, the capital and largest city of Cambodia.

After filming wrapped, she returns to the country every four months to help build toilets and raise awareness of feminine hygiene.
