No, it is not the popular Shilin Night Market, although I do make sure to join the crowds each time I visit my birthplace. After all, it is true what all the travel guides tell you – if you haven’t been to Shilin, you haven’t been to Taipei.
Ningxia Night Market
But my favorite place for street food is the smaller and less congested (thank goodness!) Ningxia Night Market, where 95% of the people you will be rubbing stomachs with and sharing tables with is local Taiwanese. Your Taipei gastronomic adventure can’t get more authentic than that!
