Owner description: Jao Ho Street has become a secondary road and the business has also declined. Therefore, the government set up a night market in 1987. It is the second tourist night market in Taipei.

Aihhh we were too stingy to take a cab there so we tried walking instead. We came to this super big place thats like a night market but were all clothes. We were later told that it wasnt raohe but raohe was nearby lol. Price of clothes ranged from as cheap as $4 to v. expensove. If your going there, dont grab the first shirt you see and buy it as shops nearer the periphery of the place is more expensive. Im sure it would be nice to take a break from shopping to eat at raohe!!

“My favorite night market in Taipei!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

This must be my most favourite night market of all the night markets we visited. It isn’t a very big night market but with its compact size and layout, it makes it easy to walk through. It’s basically 2 rows of food stalls flanked by clothes/random stalls at the side.

RaoHe night market is about a 10 mins walk from Wufenpu so it is best to plan to visit Raohe after visiting Wufenpu (if your stamina allows for it).

We basically ate our way through Rao He Night market and stopped to try anything that looked good or had a queue!

Food we ate:
- famous “Pepper Pie” or 胡椒饼 – it is basically like hot tau siah piah with black pepper filling. We didn’t really like this actually despite it being famous
- There were various soya bean stalls to choose and the tau huay we had was super good, very cold and refreshing. Definitely a must-try.
- bbq-ed sausage with cheese filling
- potato with lotsa cheese and ham

“One of the best”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

A local recommended is to go to Raohe, which we didn't consider at all at the beginning coz it was far from MRT. We decided to follow our friend's advice, took a taxi and was there in no time. We quickly found our beloved mushroom, fishball, small sausage inside big sausage, satay skewers (only chicken was good), pancakes, salmon hand rolls, and deep fried Oreos (first time we heard of it). I especially loved my purchase of a vest for NTD690, while back home it sells for a discounted price of NTD7000.

There is public toilet, but only the green booth with no water supply. My husband went anyway but we all decided to hold till we got back to hotel.

“A Typical Night Market”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

What more can you say? Theer are the normal street side eating areas, the stalls selling things nobody would ever buy, the restaurants...

What there is not is perhaps one of the issues to focus on. There are no comfortable places to stop and watch the world go by. Do not expect the Western bars you find in similar markets elesewhere - they are not there. Actually one thing that is different is that there is some form of gaming around in the "roll up at the fair" style.

The market is clean and safe, but it is easy to go through without wanting to buy anything. From my point of view this is interesting but not as challenging as some of the markets that I have attended.
