The Huaxi Street Night Market is made for tourists. It's actually two arcades of shops selling tat. This area was once the center of Taipei's nightlife. The Shihling Night Market offers better things.... more »
I visited the market on recommendation from one of the local tour guides, as we were looking to try something exotic — Huaxi is known for its snake delicacies. Upon arrival, we were (happily) distracted by the amount and variety of food we had there! We ended up eating all sorts of things — pig’s trotters, smelly tofu, pork rib soup, etc. Love the variety and how cheap everything is, but most of all, the market isn’t as crowded as the others (Shilin, Raohe). Can’t miss this if you’re a foodie. The seafood there is very fresh and everyone should definitely give this a go!
Awesome place if you like to get your nails done..
