  • As the night fell, the street is vividly crowded with shoppers and gourmet lovers. The neon signs that line the streets of Tonghua make it loud and attractive to the shoppers. It’s one of the busiest street markets in central Taipei. You’ll not only get to experience exotic delicacies of Taiwan but also Malaysian and Japanese. The market in particular attracts people of all age groups. The young ones like me come here for fashionable clothing, while the families come for daily goods and delicious foods. There’s a big central islet which has various vendors, selling everything from fresh fruits like strawberries to fried pig’s knuckles and braised duck tongue for the brave hearts. Apparently the pig's knuckle from the forefoot is deliciously succulent. In the northern part of the country, it is generally stewed in a light broth whereas it is a braised in a flavourful soy sauce in the southern part of the country.
  • Can get pretty crowded. Have a good selection of food at good prices. It's not too big but you can definitely be satisfied.
  • I love shopping and snacking in this night market. I liked to start on Keelung by the pet stores and go straight down enjoying the wares, before eating on Tonghua.
  • One of my favorite night markets, best location, best xiao long bao, best hong you chao shou of any night market.
  • A smaller night market than Shilin, but a little more local in flavour with some fantastic food. Great pan fried steam buns near the entrance.
