Tips for you
Smaller night market which is a great alternative to the mass, tourist-infested night markets elsewhere in the city. Great food and experience here. Recommended.
Tonghua Street night market is not far away from my hotel here.A Taiwanese friend took me there, instead of the famous Shilin Night Market, I was told here is much smaller, but without many tourists, she was quite right.All food I tried in Tonghua street are fantastic, very good price, local taste and full of choices. Actually I ate too much... my suggestion is, you'd better come with 3-4 friends together so that you share the food and try more. Or if you are alone or 2, might be better to skip the dinner.Delicious!!
Must tries here are the stinky tofu, sesame tang yuan ?????pan fried.buns (????)Be warned though the location stated on the map is COMPLETELY wrong. It is is around 3km south east of daan station.
Taipei has several night markets. Tonghua is a smaller one, still very busy, but easier to walk around at the peak hours because of the layout on a single street. This is a good option if you are staying in central Taipei and just want to savor a night market for a couple of hours. I took the MRT (Brown Line) to Liuzhangli, and walked about 5 minutes to get to the night market.There is something for most people inside the night market. I settled for some excellent teppanyaki at a busy shop inside the night market - it was well worth the wait for a stool at the grill, which was clean and served up to 10 people at a time. I had several mini helpings of tofu, fish, omelete, and vegetables, served with rice. Beef and chicken was also available.You can sit and enjoy the atmosphere inside for about 30 minutes - The total tab for my dinner was under 300 TWD (or 10 USD).There are many other options as you walk down Linjiang Street, including fresh cut fruit, various desserts and other simple cafes, plus the unmistakable stinky tofu stalls. This is all mixed in with stalls selling casual clothing and other trinkets. The night market stays open until 3am, but it is less crowded from midnight onwards. A nice way to get a taste of Taipei.
