Raohe Night Market – What We Saw

Raohe night market
Hi everyone! I’m back in Manila. After battling jet lag for several days I’m ready to start posting again. I can’t wait to show you all the places I ate at from California to New York and places in between. Before that I’ll finish my entries on Taipei and some other restaurants in Manila. So keep coming back to see what I’ve been up to.

I went to Taipei with one thing in mind -the food! So far we’ve eaten at several fast food eateries at the mall and they were good too. We had buffet at a Japanese restaurant and that was awesome. But what we were looking for was authentic Chinese comfort food. Our last trip to Shilin Night Market was a disappointment because we went to the wrong place and didn’t have enough time. This time we had a tour guide, cousin Angie who brought us to Raohe Night Market.

The weather cooperated and kept the rain away from the open market. It was hot and humid and the narrow street was filled with lots of people.

Even before going through the sign above there were already several stalls selling food, veggies, fruits and many more.

These pastries looked really tempting and it was just the beginning of the street so we passed on it.

Yes, they sold undies too. Raohe Night Market was a one stop tourist destination. There’s shopping, gaming and lots and lots of food.

They sure like their fried chicken. This was just one of several stalls selling boneless fried chicken. They came in all forms: strips, nuggets and chunks.

Some eateries in the middle of the street provided tiny tables and chairs for you to eat their food. All spaces were taken.
