The Democrat is one of the newest restaurants at the crab market. You can enjoy your drinks or diner sitting right above the water with the sound of the waves in the background. Both the Aussie owner and the Khmer staff are very friendly and the food is excellent. The chef cooked the best amok: delicately spiced and light like a mousse or a souffle; an exquisite dish to enjoy with a crisp Chilean Sauvignon Blanc. Nothing is pre-cooked; all food is prepared on demand. So take your time and enjoy what is probably the best crab amok. If you come to Kep, you'd be mad to miss it.
