Particularly, my food list is going to be written through night markets in Taipei, which is a spotlight in Taiwanese culture. So, let the food marathon begin!

Located on 4 roads of Shilin district: Jihe, Dadong, Danan, and Wendi, Shilin night market is well-known as the largest night market in the rest of Taiwan.

Shilin’s infrastructures include two areas: Shilin’s building and a variety of stores around the building. Shilin’s building has 1 story and 3 basements.
