Gijang Crab Market (기장 대게시장) – (How to go, what to expect and what we ordered)

We spent my mom’s birthday during our trip to Busan and knowing that she loves crab, I tried to do my research about where you can eat crab in Busan.

Tha’s how I ended up with Gijang Crab Market (기장 대게시장).

How to go to Gijang Crab Market from Canvas Hostel:

Take bus 1003 (bus stop from Canvas Hostel for bus 1003 can be found here)

but after walking, we decided to have lunch here

this is their sign and their store name is 청해왕대게

outside the place, they can only sell male crabs and cannot sell female crabs BUT WE WERE SURPRISED THAT THEY TASTED SO GOOD

the restaurant is beside a stall that sells FRESH ABALONE (roughly 3,000 won/each)

we chose a crab and chose some abalone and the staff steamed them for us (there is a cooking charge of 4,000 won/person and you can ask them to steam the abalone that you will buy from the store beside them)

we went up the second floor

and they will set up the table for you
