One of the best and most exciting night markets I found in Taiwan was Miaokou Night Market at Keelung. It’s a good place to explore Taiwan’s variety of food! And it’s really very hard not to be overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices.
One side of the market was for shopping and there were clothes, dog clothes, household merchandise, shoes and even adult videos among others. While we bought a couple of stuff here and there, it was the food that we were most interested in!
My sister really liked these cute cakes and they were really cheap too. About NT20 to NT30 for the whole set!
We came to Miaokuo Night market after a full day of touring so the sights and smells of the street foods got our full attention! Almost immediately we set to buying and trying as much as we could! Mum got herself some peanut pancake and candied fruits.
We tried the fresh water eel soup.
Since this night market is in Keelung which is near the port, there are tons of fresh and cheap seafood on sale here. My family ordered baked crabs and steamed prawns and crayfish while I sadly looked on cause I couldn’t have any! But I did have my share of fried ribs and chicken! Sadly we didn’t take much photos of the foods we ate cause everyone’s hands were too oily from the food.
In the middle of the bustling night market street is a chinese temple. I supposed that’s how Miaokuo Night Market got its name.
Surrounding the temple on the left and right are even more food stalls! You could find Japanese foods, fishball soups, dumpling soups, oyster omelet, smelly toufu, bubble tea, Taiwanese tempura, all sorts of noodles, fried sandwiches, ice-cream and much much more!
I could go on and on about the food or show you page after page of photos but I think a video does a better job or surmising everything. In this video, you can view our little trip to Yeh Liu, Jiu Fen, the goldmine and all the way to our trip at the night market.
