The Luotong Night Market in Yilan is probably the second largest night market in Taiwan after the Taipei Shilin Night Market. However, I find the quality of the stores and food noticeably better than that at Shilin. It is about 1.5 hours by car from Taipei city. There shall be at least over 100 stores there and it is always packed both on week days and weekend. So be prepared to queue for the popular stores during peak hours from 7-9pm. The deep fried chicken here is at least 2 notches better than the famous Hot Star large fried chicken in Shilin. The most popular stone is the 阿灶伯当归羊肉汤 (Ah Zao Mutton Soup) which had the longest queue and people seems don't mind the 1 hour wait. Some other interesting one is the spring roll store which make their wrapping skin fresh on the spot. It is worthy for a trip if you are in Taipei or nearby vicinity.
