Shi Lin Night Market

Beyond a doubt, Shi Lin Night Market is one of the most famous night markets in Taipei, making it a long-time favorite among residents and tourists, locals and foreigners. When you go to Shi Lin Night Market, be sure not to eat beforehand. The food there is simply too delicious to pass up. The prices are low, the servings are generous and the variety seems endless - cold, hot, sweet, sour, salty, spicy, fish, fowl; if it can be eaten, they probably have it. Don't worry about not being able to find what you want to eat. Rather, worry that you might not be able to finish everything you want.

The best place to begin is right in front of Yang Ming Theater (1F, 113, Wen Lin Rd.; tel. 02-2881-4636) at Hao Da Chicken Steak, which claims to be the originator of the chicken steak in Taiwan. When you see a line of these golden chicken steaks, you’ll probably be as awed as I was by their size, about twice as big as those at other eateries. Take a bite, and you’ll find the skin crispy and the meat tender and juicy. Each piece costs just NT$40. Fashion accessories, especially those from Japan, are popular items here. The main market for these is on An Ping Street, to the left of Yang Ming Theater. All the hottest products can be found there and the variety of toys, bags, stuffed animals and cell phone decorations is simply mind-boggling. You can take the MRT Danshui line to Chientan Station, or take to the MRT Chientan Station, Min Chuan University, or Xiao Bei (Hsiao Pei) Street. Or, of course, you can simply take a taxi.
