Kinley Restaurant, Crab Market, Kep
Crab Market SunsetsThis photograph was taken in Kep, Cambodia - a small seaside getaway known for its rich pepper plantations, salt fields and extraordinary crab market where locals and tourists alike go to browse, buy and eat what is considered by many to be the best crab in the world.
This was one of the stilt-supported restaurants we found at the crab market along the shore where we were greeted by the most polite, passionate and welcoming waiter. He was so enthusiastic to practice his English with us and provide only the best service, food recommendations and experience. I have never met a waiter so kind, warm and genuine.
He gave us the best seat in the house with a breath-taking view of Kep's ocean-horizon sunset and the sound of waves crashing. This was by far the most jaw-dropping sunset I have ever seen; a large golden circle making its way past the Elephant Mountains to the other side of the world.
For dinner we shared a delicious plate of crab, shrimp and squid with salt, cooked lime, lemongrass, basil, a citrus dressing, and Kep's very own whole green peppers.
Needless to say, every aspect of this dinner was incredible: from the food, to the staff, to the view, location and atmosphere. It was such a magically delicious experience for the taste buds, eyes and ears.
All for less than $10.
The famous crab market is an absolute must when visiting Kep, Cambodia.
