  • Yellow Productions Presents!

  • The best night markets in and around Taipei

  • Taiwan. I'm Chris! I'm Topher!

  • And in this video we're going to be showing you some the best night markets to eat

  • out at

  • in and around Taipei. In this video we'll visit the following night markets

  • Best overall for food and just food Ningxia night market.

  • Best for seafood Keelung night market. Best

  • because it's the biggest Shilin night market. Best for snake

  • Huaxi Street night market. Best variety Raohe night market.

  • We will begin with the Keelung night Market. The Keelung night market while not

  • directly

  • in Taipei it's just a short train ride from Taipei and it's one of the best

  • across taiwan

  • particularly known for its seafood they've also done quite a bit with the

  • signage here and there's English signs on every stall

  • so if you don't speak Chinese you know at least a little bit what you're getting.

  • To get to the Keelung night market from Taipei main station take a TRA

  • train to the

  • Keelung train station. The Keelung Night Market is a fairly sprawling market

  • but try to find the temple. The temple is the center of the market and some of the

  • best stalls are around

  • the temple. Something you'll see in a lot of stands here is the Ding Bian Cuo.

  • It's a noodle soup that has these really big noodles

  • shrimp and some pork in it. It's a very mild broth.

  • Quite tasty. Another popular item here is

  • Tenpura. Well not japanese Tempura but here it's actually

  • fish cake with some sauce on it served

  • in little bowl with a dainty little fork.

  • Kind of sweet. Kind of Savory.

  • Kind of Chewy

  • Not too fishy.

  • Only 35 New Taiwan dollars so pretty reasonable.

  • next up Shilin night market. The best market because

  • it's the biggest. It's the biggest in all of Taiwan. It's not a single

  • street in fact it's an entire neighborhood.

  • There is a building the one behind me called Shilin market. On the ground floor

  • there's shops. In the basement is a food court.

  • But this entire neighborhood is actually a night market.

  • To get to the Shilin Night Market take the MRT red line

  • to the Jiantan Station.

  • Go out exit 1.

  • And the Shilin Market is this area over here. Next up

  • Huaxi Street. One of Taipei's oldest night markets its name literally

  • translates to snake

  • alley and is most famous for its restaurants here that serve

  • Snake! You can even pick the one you want to eat out of the cage.

  • The night market at Huaxi Street is two blocks long. It has some decorative red

  • lanterns. And it's covered which makes it great to come to

  • on a rainy day. The first block of the night market in addition to the snake

  • vendors also has a number of souvenir shops

  • and massage parlors. If snake isn't really your thing, the second block of this night

  • market has some food vendors that sell more normal Taiwanese foods.

  • There's also three other night market streets in this area that have carts

  • selling other tasty treats. To get to the Huaxi Street night market take the

  • MRT blue line to the Longshan temple stop.

  • Once you're here you'll find a number helpful signs directing you to the night

  • market.

  • Make sure to also check out the Longshan Temple built in 1738.

  • Dedicated to the Buddhist goddess mercy. The Ningxia night market is my favorite

  • for food. It's a narrow lane flanked on both sides by food stalls.

  • As well as one side having some traditional brick-and-mortar restaurants

  • to get to the Ningxia Night market taking the MRT Red line to the

  • Shuanglian stop.

  • When you get out exit 1 turn left walk down that street.

  • One of the most popular things at the Ningxia

  • night market is the Oyster Pancake. Also in Chinese is the

  • Er at sen

  • here you can see it has taiwanese oysters. It has vegetables, starch, egg and some sweet

  • sauce

  • You order from the Stall two doors down. They have you sit in this room

  • and they bring it to you when it's ready. If you don't like Oysters don't be afraid

  • because they also have shrimp or you can get half Shrimp half Oyster.

  • But even Oyster ones they don't really taste like seafood.

  • It's really good! You should try it out. And if you can't find that stall

  • good news there's a whole bunch of other vendors that also sell Oyster pancakes.

  • Give one of them a try. And finally Raohe Street night market

  • I like this night market because it has a good variety of shops

  • and food. It's clean, well-organized, and its compact.

  • 600 meters on a single street. Easy to see easy to take in without being

  • completely exhausted and overwhelmed.

  • To get to the Raohe Street night market take a TRA train to the SongShan

  • station

  • go out the west exit turn right at Songshan street and then turn

  • left on Raohe

  • street. If you're more of a visual person just find your way outside the station

  • look for the big temple

  • turn left there's the night market under the arch. While you're here make sure to

  • also check out that temple

  • the Ciyou temple. It was established in 1753

  • and honors the Chinese goddess of the sea. Thanks for watching!
