One of the best night markets in TaipeiBefore the green metro line was built, you had to take a bus or taxi to get to this night market; now with an extended green metro line, it makes it so easy to get here. Songshan Metro Stop (not Songshan Airport stop) is the last station east on the green metro line and the night market is just next to the stop. I thought the carnival like Raohe Night Market was going to be only food, but it turned out to be two rows of food carts lining the 600m street, only in the middle, between non food stores, with lots of tables & chairs for customers to sit and eat at too. It is a very long walk from one end of the market to the other. Regular non food stores run on either side of the carts. On one side of the street are stores selling footwear, clothing, electronics, toys, souvenirs, underwear, herbs, medicines - you name it. On the other, are restaurants mixed in with same, even fortune tellers are there. Young locals like to come to this market as it checks off all the boxes of being a great night market, offering the most popular Taiwanese foods. It’s been said that generally, locals usually do not frequent night markets because within their own neighborhoods, most foods are already offered there. Many view night markets more for tourists and young on dates. The Taiwanese love their own foods too, more than anything foreign offered to them. Although the famous Shilin Night Market is the biggest of them all, Shilin is very difficult to navigate, tends to be overwhelming, and you can get lost. Raohe makes it simple and easy to figure out - you just walk down one side and back the other side. Metro is only a block away too. There is also a very beautiful temple at the entrance to this night market.

Authentic Taiwanese street foodRaohe Street Night Market is definitely one of the biggest and most famous night markets in Taipei, Taiwan. There is a great variety of street food from authenticity to fusion and tradition to modern. The most popular, must-eat foods are Pepper pastries, the Braised Pork Chops in Chinese Medicine Soup, the Mochi with Peanut & Sesame Powder and the Fried Taro Ball with Salted Egg Yolk. My favorite was the pepper pastries, which is the first stand located right at the entrance of the night market with a long line all the time. The paper pastries are covered with a crispy pocket bread, filled with juicy pork patty infused with black pepper and other spices. Overall, It’s totally worth a visit to Raohe Street Night Market and the transportation is also convenient by MRT.

A Good place with good variety of food, goods for free walkLocated next to an attractive temple, very ornate and well worth a look in. Supposed to sell the best pork pepper bun for $55. Good if you like pork, pepper and bread. Other types of tidbits and foodstuffs also available, freshly cooked or made etc. A few games stalls too. May struggle to find a parking space.
