    Most Amusing & A Must For Taipei


    Plenty on offer with shops and stalls. But over and above that great local food and drinks at very reasonable prices. Can get busy with tourists but helps the atmosphere. We went early when a little quieter. If in town you should visit.

    Super fun evening out


    This was a super fun place to visit. I’d read mixed reviews so wasn’t sure what to expect but I loved the whole atmosphere. I loved the mix of shops and food and all the people out having a great time. If you go, make sure you get off the main road and explore all the side streets. People were friendly and there was lots of variety of food. Well worth the visit.

    May be slightly overrated


    Overall a nice place but many of the food stalls are just repeats of one another. Still worth visiting at least once.

    Not exactly amazed


    So we got there early probably around 4pm where most of the stalls are still prepping up and only a few are open. We totally got lost so im not sure if where got into os the exact site of Shilin night market but a lot of food stalls still dotted the area . We found the castella cake stall but even after returning twice the cake is still not ready. We eneded up hanging out at Lattea and spend a few minutes there until sundown so by the time we went out the market has become so alive. We only got to try the Prince cheese potato, pepper pork bun and blowtorch beef. Was supposed to tey stinky tofu but havent found the place. So again maybe we got lost in this maze of Shilin market
