Night markets Taipei

If you hadn’t read about our Taiwan food coma (here), then you’ve missed out! While Taiwan may have some beautiful vistas, we tend to think that it is the diversity of food on this island that is more of a draw. For us anyway!

Sure there will be night markets all over Asia.

Having beaten the path in Thailand, Hongkong, China and Indonesia, we have to say that the ones in Taiwan is ichiban (一番)! The featured image on this post is the smelly or stinky tofu. Just like durians, it may take a little of acquired taste to enjoy. But once you are over the hurdle, you can’t get enough of it! That’s how Suan felt trying them for the first time…

Not only are there night markets in almost every city in Taiwan, they have specialties too. In the short 3 nights we had the privilege of exploring a separate market every night in Taipei, eating and drinking our way till we could not walk.

Read more here about our adventures into some of Taipei’s night markets and perhaps plan your own “attack” on the food that is on offer…

  2. Taiwan food coma…omg. Sounds like a plan. I have the craziest palate. I once worked as the Pan-Asian Chef de partie for a Downtown spot in Manhattan. I had the privilege of working with some amazing line cooks from Hsinchu and Taipei. I developed a love for beef and bitter melon! We made it for ourselves every Friday. Great way to ring in a busy night.
