    It’s made by the Saint Peter bake shop which is located by the base of the steps going up to Jiufen Old Street. These coffee nougat biscuits are so much delicious. They’re chewy and not too sweet with a robust coffee flavor.

    You’ll find stalls selling deep-fried battered seafood in virtually every night market in Taiwan, and Jiufen Old Street is no exception. At this stall, they make them with different types of seafood like crab, shrimp, and squid. It’s tender, crunchy, and delicious. It’s easy to eat too while walking which is ideal for a place like this.

    There are stalls along Jiufen Old Street called Zhang Ji and Jin Zhi which are known for their fish ball and meatball soup respectively. They came in different sizes and appeared to be a mix of fish, pork, squid, and vegetable. They’re hearty and fun to eat.

  • 4. Glutinous Rice Cake

    It’s a Hakka glutinous rice cake made with a variety of fillings like the salted vegetable, preserved turnip, and sweet red bean. Hakka cuisine is the cooking style of the Hakka people who are originally from China. Several stalls sell these glutinous rice cakes in Jiufen, but none are more popular than Ah Lan Hakka Glutinous Rice Cake. In fact, they’re one of the most popular stalls in Jiufen. They’re easy to spot too.

  • 5. Ice Cream Puff

    This was one of the oddest things in Taiwan. It’s like an ice cream peanut burrito. To make it, peanut shavings are spread out over traditional popiah skin and topped with two small scoops of ice cream. It’s then folded up like a thin flat burrito before being cut into two and served.

  • 8. Taiwanese Sausages
