Taiwan Adventure : Part 5 | iPhoneography

Also when you’re in Taiwan, be sure to visit the night markets. There are a few popular ones. Wherever you may be staying in Taiwan, just ask the locals for the nearest popular night markets. These selected images do not fully depict what a real night market is like, but merely a sneak peek of a very few things they sell at a typical night market (and a street market during the day).
Shown in order from top left to bottom right:
1. Marinaded snail/clam (I don’t even know what it’s called in English. I apologize! But it’s shaped like a mini-cone, and tastes like escargot-but much better), in all different levels of spiciness. I loved these when I was little.
2. Raw oysters (unprepared).
3. Women preparing above raw oysters to sell.
4. Aliens. I mean…flavored giant squid-things.
5. Cactus for your home.
6-7. The Black peppered meat buns and how they cook them. Super delicious when you find the right place to buy ’em from. This one at Taichung night market is good.
8. Small plums topped with sugary-ginger sprinkles. Love, love these. But depending on the vendor, as with buying fruits at grocery stores, if you happen to get a really ripe and yummy batch, it’s soooo good!!! I couldn’t stop eating them. And I get these almost every single time I go back to Taiwan.
9. Lychee sold on the back of the truck. I love lychee.
10. Entrance to one of the famous night markets in Taichung. This is a really good one, with plenty of all kinds of food to choose from, and plenty of clothing shops to bargain at. To avoid the crazy crowds, visit on a week night.
*And lastly, please use your discretion when you buy street food. For example, I don’t get fresh milk products or raw seafood from street vendors after noon on a super hot summer day, because I don’t know how long it’s been sitting out there, don’t know if it’s been sitting right under the bright sun, don’t know if flies have gotten to it first, and don’t know if my stomach could handle it. So my immediate decision is to not risk it. BUT that’s me, and everyone is different. And obviously, people DO still buy them if the street vendors are out there until late every day, and people still feel fine after eating ’em. So please just discern wisely :D For the record, though, my grandma buys raw clams from their street market in the mornings and I always eat A LOT of them after they’re cooked; haven’t gotten sick from them ever.
