No visitor comes to Taipei will leave without a visit to one of the city’s famous street markets. We picked Raohe Street Night Market (饒河街觀光夜市) at Songshan District. It was not only the wide varieties of food that excited us, but watching how each vendor earnestly prepared the food was also a fascinating experience.
We entered Raohe Street Night Market through its east gate.
The famous black pepper buns were prepared with a traditional baking method in a cylindrical charcoal stove.
Pearl red bean cakes.
Some stalls were neatly decorated with colourful lights.
Several stalls were selling sausages prepared in indigenous Taiwanese style.
Rice with mutton and pork spare ribs are some of the more filling options around.
Tables were set up in the middle of the street.
Mango dessert is a local favorite.
Spicy beef noodles, dumblings, and fish ball soup.
Red lanterns enhanced the atmosphere of the market.
Meat and vegetable wraps were carefully prepared by this vendor.
Dry goods were also sold in the market.
Skewers with various spices.
