Taipei: Raohe Night Market

They say that Taipei is a food destination. And the best way to experience that is to go to the night markets of Taipei.

We visited Raohe and Shilin. Raohe was an easy choice because it was close by our hotel. Shilin, on the other hand was a bit far from our hotel but we decided to visit it because we read that it's one of the famous night market.

It was drizzling when we first went to Raohe. But because we were so hungry, the rain did not deter us. LOL! The rain stopped though after a while.

Our original plan was to buy food along the street and eat while walking. But since it was drizzling and we had kids with us, we went inside a restaurant. The restaurant was called Running Spoon and they serve fried rice in sizzling plates.

After our dinner, we went through the whole stretch of Raohe and saw a lot of yummy looking food. We only tried a couple of street food because we were already full from dinner. But we came back another night for a taste of some of their street food.

My favorite was the sausage and the milk tea. Unfortunately, I don't have pictures of it. As usual we were busy eating and taking in all the things around us.

Here are some pictures we managed to take using our phones only.

{Flame-torched beef. Must try!

{Fried chicken fillet, I think. Did not try this}

{Fried pork cubes. The kids loved it!}

{Toasted buns. It was good and very filling. No wonder the queue was long}
