Tasting Yummy Taiwanese Street Foods
In Taiwan, most of people’s time is spent around two things: eating, and talking about the next meal or next snack. One of the reasons people go to Taiwan is the food. And why not?

Taiwan is voted as the top food spot in Asia with many bustling night markets filled with relatively cheap and varied street food.
Here is a quick list of some of the scrumptious foods in Taiwanese night markets.
  • Stinky Tofu

    Stinky Tofu is one of those things in Taiwan which makes big questions for many visitors: Why is it called stinky tofu? Where is it sold? Does it taste like what it smells?
    Stinky Tofu is a kind of fermented tofu, which has a highly unpleasant, pungent smell, especially when it is deep fried -think dirty wet socks or strong blue cheese. In Chinese, it’s called “chou dou fu”. It is a popular street food, typically cooked on the side of the road at small stalls, and it is not commonly sold in restaurants. Stinky tofu is considered by many people to be the national snack of Taiwan’s street foods.

    Pepper Bun is a type of baked bun that originated from the Fuzhou region in China. It is a street food that has become quite popular in Taiwan and can be found in night markets or mini food stores throughout Taiwan. It has become one of the most loved street foods in Taiwan.
    The main ingredients of the filling are meat, usually pork. The meat is either ground or sliced thinly. Some vendors use ground and sliced meat to give the bun a bite to it, but ground meat is usually used since it produces more water when cooked. The meat is usually marinated with a heaping of white or black pepper powder, soy sauce, sugar and cooking wine

  • Deep fried prawns

    The key to any deep-fried savory dish is crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and this snack from Taiwan does it perfectly. Freshly caught prawns are battered and deeply fried and served with a sweet brown sugar sauce, pickled ginger and wasabi for a sweet, sour, nose-clearing finish.

  • Barbecued anything

    Seafood, chicken wings, cow's stomach, tofu in all shapes and sizes, snake beans,etc. Your culinary imagination is the only limit when it comes to the Taiwanese night market barbecue.
    You have a choice of dipping sauces too: a sweet and sour brown sugar sauce, sweet chili pepper sauce and sha cha (dried shrimp) chili sauce. Some customers don't dip into any sauce at all and I can attest that it still tastes great. Barbecue stores are popular at all night markets in Taiwan.

  • Pearl Milk Tea

    The bubbles or pearls milk tea arrived in 1988 when during a meeting Liu poured some tapioca balls into his iced teas. Everyone loved it, so the national drink was born. Served with an oversized straw, this drink can be any variety of tea, at any temperature. The only prerequisite is that vendors must pack the bottom half of the cup with the jelly-like pearls, or what many people call bubbles.
    It is at every corner with a surprised low price in Taiwan or even you can take a bus to Taichung and head over to Chun Shui Tang, the milk tea stores that started this phenomenal worldwide craze.

  • Sweet glass rice dumplings
