One night at Shilin Night Market


It was drizzling when we first arrived in Taipei and it lasted through the night. We visited Shilin Night Market not knowing what to expect.

Walking along the streets and we decided to go to Shilin Night Market Food Court. In Singapore context, it’s like our food center with many different stalls. Most of the stalls sells seafood and what stood out was the fermented toufu (also known as Chou Do Fu). These toufu are not really that smelly, in fact, you will probably get the fermented smell when it’s in your mouth. Honestly, this was one of my favourite food in Taipei.

As you walk along the streets, there are many street food but the highlight would definitely be the deep fried milk. It’s crunchy on the outside but soft in the inside and it melts in your mouth. Be careful when you eat it because it’s hot. The stall is located along the main road so it shouldn’t be too difficult to find it.
