We don’t have a lot of pictures from our trip to Taiwan, but we were able to use my iPhone to document some of the vittles we sampled.
Late night snacking is synonymous with Taipei’s famous night markets, and any visit to Taiwan is incomplete without meandering through these alleys of vendors and stands hawking various snacks and goods to passerby’s. Everything is small portioned so it is easy to stop and nibble on pork bun here and a lamb skewer there before moving on to the next treat.
My first night market experience was at Rao He Street Night Market.
Obviously, our first stop is the infamous stinky tofu stand. The Taiwanese version is fried and then drizzled with sauce and topped with pickled veggies. Despite it’s threatening name and stench, it really wasn’t that bad. In fact, it was downright yummy.
We also stopped by the famous Shilin Market before we left Taipei. It’s the largest night market in Taipei and extends into an underground portion as well.
Even after stuffing my belly to the brim with every trip, I’m pretty sure I’ve only scratched the surface of the all the delicacies that are served up every night.
