Night Moves

Taipei is famous for its night markets.  Night markets come in all shape and sizes, of smelly.  We took our adventurous friend to one of the largest, Shilin, for a taste of Taiwan. Shilin is a labyrinth of steaming meat trucks, bun vendors, shrimp fishing in buckets, and various clothing and accessories.  We spent two hours wandering around eating all kinds of things.  Tex and Brynno tasted nearly a dozen weird, new snacks.  I was less than impressed with the offerings (shocking).  It was super fun to walk around though. Tex tries boar meat sausage…again. I tried stinky tofu! It wasn’t half as bad as the smell. When deeply, deeply fried, and covered in spicy sauce, it was almost good! *** The night market is built around this temple. People sit around outside and eat their night market snacks. A steaming meat truck. A spring roll stand. You tell these two ancient individuals what you want and they wrap it up. Brynno enjoys some meat on a stick. ***We all tried some durian fruit.  Um… gross.  It was way worse than the stinky...
