Kep is famous across Cambodia for its crab, which are found in Crab shacks - local restaurants serving its different local cuisines. It is a recommended activity for tourists traveling to Kep to try the various seafood delicacies. The most popular crab dish is fried crab with local pepper. Steamed, stewed crabs dipped in Amok curry or spicy red sauce is served in Crab shacks along with other seafood options.
With just a few crab shacks a few years ago, now you can find plenty of them all around Kep. The most popular ones are a series of wooden restaurants located next to the Crab market. There are a couple of Crab shacks close to Kep beach as well. English menu is available in most of these shacks. The locals speak manageable English, so it's better to state the order and check prices beforehand clearly.
Some of the crab shacks are excellent locations to watch the sunset, relax and dine. A few of them are also open until late at night as well.
