Night Market ( 夜市 : Yèshì ) are well known here in Taiwan and it's one of the place where you can try different kind of Taiwan food and drinks.
Zi Qiang Night Market ( 自強夜市 : Zìqiáng yèshì) was one of the most popular night market in Hualien County, Taiwan.
Let's check it out...
There are many skewered food stall but actually this foods are deeply fried. There are skewered tofu, squid, bell pepper, mushroom,chicken and etc. Before,I was confused the first time I bought because all I thought it will be grilled..innocent me. Well, I need to experienced such thing to adapt their culture,right guys?
Another food that are common to them are steamed buns. But if you want more delicious you can buy this steamed bun with fillings inside. There are different fillings and it depends on what do you want to eat. But for me, the best was pork fillings, vegetables which include the cabbage, rice noodle and egg. Regular steamed bun will be estimated cost about 12TWD per piece.
And guys don't miss this food (picture below) it was stinky tofu. Though it has stinky smell, once you taste it I'm sure you will love it. This estimated cost about 50 TWD per serving.
If you want rice there are also a lot of rice food stalls especially noodle stalls. Estimated cost is around 60 TWD to 100 TWD depends on the dish. Estimated cost for noodles is around 35 TWD to 60 TWD depends on what kind of noodle.
There are also fresh sea foods but make sure you bring more money. It will costs you a lot...LOL
The most common drinks was red tea, black tea or green tea and of course sweet juices that are freshly made with fruits and other delicious beverages.
Good for pasalubong, a tagalog term for "take home" food or things.
