NIGHTS in Taipei is not complete w/o visiting their famous markets.! We been to the Shilin so we try out this equally famous. Take the red line to Shuanglian (雙連) Exit 1 and head west/left side for a 10 mins walk. Not bored as there are many shops still operating late at night. From Minsheng West Road (民生西路) the night market will be clearly visible. You just can’t miss the bustling寧夏觀光夜市.
Actually not a very big night market that has over 20 food stands and restaurants at both sides. The market is a pioneer and is over 50 years old. Very packed as we have to wrestle our way a full U-turn when reaching one end. The eating areas are small and many are seen waiting for their turns. These stalls are fairly close together but there is good variety of food from stinky tofu, squid on skewers, rice dishes, noodles. There are also oyster omelette, taro cake, tofu pudding and many other traditional Taiwan style dish that will satisfied your palate. At some corners there are also Some night market games (old-school but missed them!)
Indeed a nice place providing delicious snacks and more, definitely recommended for tourists whom want to immense themselves with the locals ..

Went to this night market with my wife and had a lot of fun walking around eating food! If you want to experience authentic, roadside food carts this is one of the places to go in Taipei. Tip, take your time and eat a little bit of everything. Also try the regular restaurants along the road they are delicious as well.

A smaller Night market with mainly food stalls. These stalls are fairly close together but there is good variety of food from stinky tofu, meat and squid on skewers, rice dishes, noodles . I loved the stinky tofu - which if you ignore the smell is actually delicious.

Compared to Rao He night market , this is a smaller market .No clothing stalls or other items for sale.

Well worth a visit for delicious food and snacks.

The Qs are very long for all stores . Takes a long time to get food . Unless you are willing to wait and are not hungry , you might like to join the Qs.

The prices are expensive relatively to food court prices too .

Not a positive experience overall .

I would say this night market has the largest variety of food from among all the night markets we visited (and that was quite a lot). I liked the atmosphere at the place. Just prepare for a lot of people due to the fact that the venders´ stalls are put way to close to each other.

We liked this night market because it was close to our hotel (near Taipei Main Station) and the booths were all pretty much on one street. The variety was really good, from chicken on a stick to taro balls to mochi sesame to fried rice to egg/oyster plate. The only down side is that some carts that were there the first day weren’t there the next day, so you may miss out on a favorite. Still worth the walk around.

It’s a good food street if you like eating local creations. Nothing much to buy but a lot of food to try. Not really for children as the crawl machines will cheat your money much ... they don’t drop, it will throw the item back into the box. My son was so disappointed by being cheated.

My hotel is near walking distance to this Night Market. First hotel Citizen M was near XiMenDing so we went twice. Second hotel on same trip was CityInn Station III, so we decided to walk to Ningxia which was nearer.

XiMenDing is larger and has more things to see if you need to choose one activity at night. I tried famous Ah Zhang 面线, Monga chicken chop and Tiger Sugar at Ximending. There are clothes stores, lots of variety.

Ningxia is a traditional night market, choices are limited to the typical traditional ones like grilled sotong, 烧仙草,shaved ice dessert, 卤肉饭. No clothing stores etc. In the past, I would have gone to Shilin night market or Tamsui if you have never been.

Decide if your criteria is convenience to your location, you want a tiny market or a bigger scale for more fun element, how much time you have?

If its my first two trips to Taiwan and I dont mind taking a longer MRT ride? Skip Ningxia.

Ningxia is smaller than other night markets but that makes is an easy introduction for foreigners. We enjoyed strolling through and snacking on steaming pork dumplings. Lots of stalls have a small eating area so you can sit down to eat if you prefer. We would have liked to have had a beer with our food, but it didn’t seem to be available.

Overall, this is a pretty solid night market. A myriad of choices exist to enjoy, ranging from braised chicken rice (my favorite), to fried taro balls with pickled egg and pork floss, and perhaps the most unexpected for my Western predilections, the table full of bbq duck heads.

Tips:

-I find the brown sugar tea isn't actually too sweet and really cuts through some of the heavier street foods. Nice palate cleanser. You can find these by the big frog egg sign they always put up at these places.

-Get here early if possible. The walking lane is narrow and gets really crowded really fast. It can be an exercise in patience for some.

-There's no shame in not eating something if you don't like it. The fun of these places, for me at least, is to try a bunch of new stuff.

-Seriously though, to mention again, try the braised chicken rice if you see it. Just light, clean flavors that are so true and pure. Maybe best I've had, esp. with a little chili oil.
