｜Liang’s braised snacks梁記滷味
The braised snacks is one of the famous Taiwan’s local dish. The braised snacks contains variety of ingredients, including kelp, dried bean curd, braised egg, tofu, vegetables, etc. There is no price list so just pick the things you want to eat. Because the sauce is too yummy that attracts people to line up every day. If you want to try some braised snacks, Liang’s might be a good choice if you can endure queues.
-Address:Ln. 50, Sect. 39, Tonghua St., Da’an Dist., Taipei City, Taiwan
｜Luo’s stir fries 駱記小炒
Just like the characteristic of Taiwanese, stir fries is also one of the representative dish. If you never try some stir fries, then never say that you’ve been to Taiwan. The lamb and the beef are delicious but the most famous of Luo’s is stir-fried ocean escargot. Many foreigners won’t try it because it’s a dish of snails, but if you have courage to take some, I bet you’ll love it!

｜Hunghua Spicy Salt-water Chicken紅花麻辣鹽水雞
If you ask locals for dinner advice, Hunghua spicy salt-water chicken must be the top 3 answer! Due to being introduced by many programs, Hunghua is always long queues. If you have no passion for waiting, then you must miss the delicacy. Just like braised snacks, there are variety of foods here. As for me, I like to have salt-water chicken with gherkin and crisp bamboo shoots. Fresh and spicy is the best fit!

｜Aiyu jelly & mesona(Ice in wonderland)愛玉之夢遊仙草
As a person with a sweet teeth, you must try this! In the name of hand-made, this store is always full of people, especially at night. When we talk about aiyu jelly, it usually comes with lemonade. But the feature of this store is aiyu jelly mixed with mesona. Whether it is with creamer or lemonade, it tastes amazing great! This is definitely the best dessert after eating a lot in the night market.
