Kep Crab Market, Kep

(340+ reviews on the web)
Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
At Kep Crab Market, nestled right up against the seashore, the fishermen come to sell fresh crabs caught using wooden traps. Most of the action takes place on the beach overlooking the ocean full of small boats, while small improvised shacks in the background sell local meals, vegetables, fruits, and spices. Adjacent to the market, find an array of wooden restaurants on stilts. Enjoy fresh seafood, including snapper, tuna, river fish, calamari, and the famous blue pepper crab. As well as local specialties, many of the restaurants also serve international cuisine. Finish off the day with a glass of wine and a view of the sun setting over the endless horizon. Plan your visit to Kep Crab Market and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Kep vacation builder.

  • Probably the only market in Cambodia where the fresh produce looks fresh. You can buy crab and they'll cook it right there in the wok for you. It tastes really nice. Also recommended is the squid they prepare with sweet chilly sauce, garlic, ginger, spring onion and local green peper. Delicious!
  • Interesting and unique place. Get there eay morning to avoid the crowds and get some great pics
  • A must! I'm so happy that we came back here to try the crabs because they were amazing, and the whole thing was an experience i would not miss. It was our first time ever eating crab. They get it right from the ocean for you and put on the bbq. They also showed us how to eat them, which was super nice.
  • Fresh sea food here.
  • Fresh sea food, best food and inexpensive. Better food than in Kampot
