    Best Night Market with food, souvenirs


    The best night market taipei has got to offer, with tons of food selection at the night market and the food court basement. The best ji pai has to be the right outside the entrance to shilin night market, nearby crown price cheese potatoes. You'll see a long queue of locals waiting in line patiently, and you know you have to try it too! Different from all other ji pai stores, for they (i) deep fried the chicken, (ii) dip in a sauce, (iii) grilled the chicken before it was served. And chicken was served piping hot, crispy and tender still! The other must try store has to be grilled mushroom inside shilin night market, the origin of grilled mushroom with only 1 store available, that is in shilin.

    If you're looking for a fridge magnet or cool bag tag, then you are spoilt for choice. Plenty of street food stalls. Parts of the market resemble a fairground complete with shooting stalls.. It's all good childish fun..
