  • In addition to stalls, there are restaurants in the basement. I think that there is still a sense of cleanliness here. Fried crabs and fried chicken were also delicious, but the teppanyaki shop was especially good.

  • The Shilin Night Market was on the top of my list of things to visit in Taipei. Unfortunately it was more carnival than market. Lots of games for the kids, fruit stands a plenty, and stands selling cheap junk. It, by itself is not worth your time. However the surrounding streets were amazing. Tons of great inexpensive food options and many great shops. You could wander for hours and not see it all. I absolutely loved the area and recommend that you spend as little time in the Shilin Market proper and just wander around the area.
  • There's plenty of delicious food out here. Most of it are very affordable. I like how Taiwanese welcome us with all smiles. They're very warm to us. They even know to talk in English. Good thing Google also provided us with portable translator. That's why we were able to communicate well with the locals.
