THE DOC SAYS YOU SHOULDN'T EAT AT NIGHT, BUT ODDLY SAYS NOTHING ABOUT EFFECTS OF BEING MISERABLE AT WORK ALL DAY. SO SCREW HIM AND ENJOY BUMPING ELBOWS AND GETTING FAT THE NIGHT MARKET.
Keelung Night Market
This is the one that Anthony Bourdain visited. The iconic street with the lanterns in the middle is sure to satisfy your desire to get that picture-perfect experience. This place has a few signature dishes but is most famous for it's wide selection of ice cream.
📍 Address: No. 20號, Aisi Road, Ren’ai District, Keelung City, 200
Nanya Tourist Market
To get a taste of a real local market in a lesser-frequented part of town head on over to Nanya Night Market. Here the scooters almost run you over while deafening you on their way by with their illegal exhausts that the government does nothing about. A truly Taiwanese experience awaits you!
📍 Address: 220, New Taipei City, Banqiao District, Nanya East Road, 87號220 號
Shilin Night Market
This place used to be full of fruit scammers who targeted westerners because they knew it was the most popular night market for foreigners in Taiwan. Most of these folks have been removed and now the market is squeaky clean. And by squeaky clean we mean filled with rigged games, drowning in greasy food, and polluted with the exact same Taobao clothing and gadgets in every store.
📍 Address: No. 18之1號, Lane 105, Section 1, Zhongshan North Road, Zhongshan District, Taipei City, 10491
Sanhe Night Market
This market is located right in Sanchong District, the gangster hub of Taipei. So get your boyz and head on out to flex how cool you are without realizing that you're actually extremely low class and cliche. Here is one of the only places with tons of gambling games including poker and Mahjong.
📍 Address: Zhongyang North Road, Sanchong District, New Taipei City, 241.
Tong Hua Night Market
This is a market perfect for the trust fund babies to take advantage of cheap prices and the destitute working class before heading out to the high-end clubs near Taipei 101 and Daan District. The only consultation the workers here can hope for is that the food they serve isn't puked up onto the streets 3 hours later after too much tequila.
📍 Address: Alley 1, Lane 40, Linjiang Street, Da’an District, Taipei City, 106
