What you’ll do

So, we know that night markets are meant to be about food, but the bustling stalls, arcades and neon lights draw us in like moths to a flame. Join one of our hosts and visit arguably two of the best night markets in Taipei. We love a good contrast, so the catch is that the first, Ningxia, is more of a spectacle filled with gaming stalls and bright city lights. Whereas the second, Yansan, is a real local den - no frills, no tourists, just authentic, tasty food that will blow you away. Start in Ningxia, famous for its oyster omelettes, and other traditional staples like noodles fried over blazing flames, gua bao and giant chicken chops. We hope your waistbands are stretchy, because next your host will take you to Yansan (just a short walk away), where we challenge you to try some stinky tofu. Your host will ensure you try these Taiwanese delicacies at the very best vendors. Chat to them about the food culture here, and ask any questions you may have about exotic ingredients you might never have seen. Afterwards, you can head home and blissfully slip into a food coma.
