Taiwan: The King of Street Food

During my visit to Taiwan, I paraded up the country from Kaohsiung to Taipei.

The Taiwanese are the heavy weight champions when it comes to their street food.

Needless to say, I was on a mission to try and visit as many of these markets that I physically could do in a few days.

My first stop was Liouhe Night Market, this market spans from Zhonshan Road to Zili Road in the city of Kaohsiung, and there are over 170 stalls selling Taiwanese snacks, fashionable clothing, accessories and folklore games. 

This market is popular with the locals and international tourists alike, given that it is also just one minutes walk from the KRT Formosa Boulevard station. Easy access baby. 

A few of the things that are most popular at this market are; Zheng's papaya milk, fresh seafood (so fresh that some are cooked alive and kicking), and BBQ food.

The most famous, well organised, and largest night market in Taipei is the Shilin Market.

Renowned for its deep fried chicken cutlets the size of your face, sausages wrapped in glutinous rice, oyster omelettes, fresh bao, the list is endless ;j 

Don't believe me ? Have a wander yourself.
