Its a very small Nite Market with about 100 foodstalls situated in parallels. I went for the famous wine chicken vermicelli in one of those restaurants. Its chicken thigh was very big piece but overcooked till it is tasteless and stony. Its a let down , and wonder why people would still recommend this dish on website. Please dont try this dish. Its fried sweet potato balls are overly sweeten. As if eating lumps of sugar instead. Try to visit only on weekdays, as fewer visitors and you can stroll at a peaceful pace. Basically the Nite Market is not very clean , as compared to Spore standard of cleanliness. Dont set a high barometer of cleanliness if you really wish to visit it. It is those 1960's roadside foodstalls only. Good to recollect old times. People like to write about only the positives, but I think readers get more vision if only they know about the negatives. Right ? Its reality and sincere to point out the negatives. Human loves to listen to the good comments only usually, but I like to point out the awareness instead. Whenever I read reviews, I only read the Terrible sections , to know what is the complaint , so as to learn from people's mistake. In this way I can judge is it a genuine complaint too.

Hi doromiranger, This page is for the "tour" run by Urban Adventure Taipei, not for the Night Market itself. I believe you write the review at the wrong place:) There are lots of foods in the night market, we know the place pretty well and we will bring travelers to try the best food in the night market. I believe you will have a totally different experience with our tour. Steve

I have done a few food tours when travelling and was rather disappointed with this one. A few key points for me: 1. I booked a night market tour and yet our first stop which was way too long was in a restaurant which is now part of a large chain. Yes it might have started as a stall originally but that's not what I was looking for. 2. I don't think the foods selected for the tour really reflected the Taiwan market food scene. I think there could have been much better selections. The drinks were nothing out of the ordinary and the dessert (tomato on a stick) were truly unremarkable. I saw much more interesting food in the market and in other markets I listed afterwards. 3. The pace and information flow was lacking for me. I was hoping that as we walked through the market our guide would have pointed out different things being cooked, their origins or a story about the stalls themselves. There was very little of that and even little information about some of the things we were actually eating on the tour. So I don't feel like I had a very cultural tour. Overall I thought it was poor value for money and would not recommend this to friends or family.

Went twice - thursday and Saturday nite. If you are there on Thursday, you would think that there is nothing special here tho there are plenty of shops around - caps, shirts, snickers, bubble tea and food joints. However, Saturday nite gives a different vibe with many street vendors, colorful bright lights, 10x more people, street performances (saw gangnam dance wannabe) and many other exciting things on Saturday nite.

I chose this tour because it would be good to have someone local to help us choose the good choice for the food. It was excellent choices that our guide had leaded us to try. It's right that you can choose the one that you want by yourself, but you might not try the one that you don't know, have a guide as a crew is the good way to go.
