Shilin Night Market, Taipei, Taiwan

Taipei’s Shilin Night Market is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Taiwan, famous for its abundance of Taiwanese street food. The place was the first stop for my Taiwan trip in late April 2008…

The night market was not as crowded as expected, and I was a bit disappointed with the food.

I’m not suggesting that the food was bad. It’s a matter of personal preference, and it didn’t suit my taste unfortunately; and perhaps I was a bit over-anticipating.

It’s still a fun experience though. It’s always fun to visit new places and trying new things… that’s what travel is about.

Small sausage wrapped in big sausage

Famous street food; Taiwanese hotdog with glutinous rice replacing the normal bun as the wrapper. Special, and tasted ok.

Typical Taiwanese street food

The oyster omelet, stinky tofu and Taiwanese tempura; just ok…

Hao-Da fried chicken steak

Perhaps the iconic street food in the market; famous for its enormous size. Too salty for my liking, but juicy…
