Directions to Raohe Night Market
Not only frequented by toursts, this night market is also flush with locals bartering, bargaining and picking snacks from between their teeth jovially, nightmarkets are one of the most authentic and organic representations of true Taipei culture - tiptoeing from tradition into the contemporary redefinition of this South East Asian city.
Roahe Night Market is located near the fashion marketplace Wufenpu and was one of the very first night markets in Taipei. Around six hundred meters in length of vendors, this is a perfect place for an indecisive diner to peck their way towards a full stomach. Tea shops and juice bars squeeze treasured tropical fruit into big cups-to-go, for those meandering among the fried squid, grilled oysters and hello-kitty-printed desserts.
This street used to be called Xikou Street and was once a business area decades ago. It's easily identified by its logo 'the Owl', which represents the street vendors who only come out during the night. Visitors commonly flock to Raohe Market for a face full of braised pork rice and Taiwanese sausage. Although one of the more rare and particularly potent Taiwanese dishes is served up in ladels in this very market - pork blood rice cake and stink tofu in a spicy broth.
Aside from the foodies' fare, there is plenty more to browse in Raohe. Small electronic gadgets and signature clothing items are found here a-plenty. Those tiger-print boxer shorts you've always wanted? The handbag fashioned from a Taipei flag? How about a Star Wars doll that doubles as a bluetooth speaker? Gadgets, gizmos and trinkets are plentiful and affordable in Roahe. A good place to grab some gifts or mementos. Especially convenient for those in the Songshan area - very nearby Songshan MRT station, the Songshan TRA station and Taipei's Domestic Songshan airport. (Consider strolling through here if your plane's been delayed and your belly is growling).
