Hey everyone, thought I would get a discussion going about different kinds of foods in night markets and hopefully it can be helpful to newcomers to avoid or try!
I’m interested to see purchases that were good for the money and purchases that made you think, “Did I seriously just buy this?” Don’t forget to share specific locations if you remember!
I’ll start it off…
I’ve found that those beef cubes are the worst bang for your buck. A lot of them have too much fat and no meat and you’re paying anything from 100-130NT for the large and 50-70NT for the small. Tried it when it was new to the night markets, never had it ever again.
Ironically, my best buy goes to the Taiwanese style steak on a hot plate. For 150-200NT you get a 4-6oz steak with noodles, egg and maybe a veggie. Depending on what store you go to, it’s unlimited refills on drinks and soup! My favorite is Beef King (牛魔王) at Rao He night market.
