2.2 Shi Lin Night Market 士林夜市

We went to ShiLin Night Market (士林夜市) on the first night and our last night on our stay at Taiwan. Why? There is a lot variety to eat and to shop.

The EasyCard (悠游卡) we got can be use at all MRT, trains and bus in Taipei only. To ShiLin Night Market, we need to change to the RED line at Taipei Main Station (台北车站) MRT to Jiantan Station (劍潭站).

Shi Lin Hawker Stall - very crowded with peoples, the stalls are mostly alike, selling the same food, from Oyster omelet, tempura, sotong soup, drink, chickhen chop....

The original XXL Chicken at Shilin night market (士林豪大大鸡排) NT$50
Very very big piece of chickhen until cannot finish.

Stinky tofu (臭豆腐) - not as smelly compare to Malaysia. I tired some, but I do not like it. TS enjoy it and finish the whole plate.
Oyster omelet(蚵仔煎) - not nice at all. Malaysia's oyster omelet are better.
Big Hotdog wrap Small Hotdog (大肠包小肠) - the outer layer is glutinous rice wrap with the real hotdog in the middle, mix with some vegetables inside.

Squid soup - warm and nice
Opposite the Hawker Stall, here comes the huge shopping area + some small snacks.
Famous Tao Fa(豆花), we can select 3 different extra topping in the tao fa. The tao fa abit burnt taste.

Ah Liang Oyster Mee Sua (阿亮面线) tasted normal. Maybe I eat too much Mee Sua like this back in Malaysia.

Sotong Bakar is another food that is great. Love them alot until we didn't manage to snap pictures on in.
Playing mahjung in public. It's a 1 person game.

Around Shi Lin Night Market, we saw this man dress up as an angle in promoting their products. And even a girl standing on the middle of the street with words on her dress promoting their shop.
The first day wondering around Shi Lin make me start spending money on buying some dress and umbrellas. Oh... I love their umbrella and I brought 3 of them.
Time was getting late and we headed back to Xi Men Ding. We saw this street artist 街头画家 spraying to produce a drawing. So cool! His booth was always crowded with people. We saw him every night when we go back to our homestay. And finally brought 2 piece of art work from him. It is just NT$100 per art work.

That's all for Day 1. Next we will be heading to Kaohsiung and to Kenting in Day 2.
