Fodor's Review

Eating out at a night market is a not-to-be-missed treat in many East Asian countries, and the Chinese food in Taipei's market is as good as you'll find anywhere. Shilin is the city's biggest and most popular market—the food court contains more than 500 separate stalls, so bring an appetite. Stalls begin opening at around 4 each afternoon and feed happy diners until midnight. Snacks are very cheap and start from a few cents each; even larger dishes only run to a few dollars. To decide what to eat, wander around and let your eyes and nose make the selection for you. To get here, head for Juiantan metro station on the Red line, then follow the intoxicating smells; it is also visible from the station.
