One of the most famous and biggest night markets in Taiwan is Shilin Night Market. It has both a non-food and a food section. The main food section is now indoors in a huge "food court" type set up. The variety of food was fantastic, however the atmosphere isn't quite the same when it's indoors.

There was lots to try, and here's what we had a chance to sink our teeth into...

1) We sat down at this place and ordered a few things:

The menu was huge (if you haven't tried it yet, stinky tofu is a speciality in Taiwan...it is certainly an acquired taste but definitely worth trying out...I would say the "stinkiness" is similar to someone who would appreciate blue-vein cheese):

The thing I love about street food is that you can watch the vendors cook the food right before your eyes:

2) A famous local snack is sausage wrapped in a sticky rice sausage, I love this one, the chewy texture of sticky rice goes so well with the sausage:

3) I tasted some great oyster omelettes at this store:

4) The grilled squid is to die for, they are so soft and tender:

5) Taiwan also has a wide range of fruits, so a great way to wash down all that night market goodness is with some delicious fruit:

The main entrance of the market is marked with a bright sign, and you'll need to walk through the non-food section to get to the food section/indoor food court area:
