Nightmarket - part 1

{@previous post reply: thanks for wishing me good luck with exams! I also want to wish for the people who haven't seen snow in their life, that someday you are going to visit a place with snow :) - my camera: Olympus E-PL1 - 14/42 mm lens}

*flashback to my trip in Taiwan* 

Bravely enough to try outlandish foods but don't want to spend to much? The Taiwanese 'nightmarkets' might be the solution for you!  
If you ever going to visit Taiwan, nightmarkets are one of the things you should pay a visit! I really enjoyed the the nightlife atmosphere, food and those typical fleamarket souvenirs! 

These poor fried mini crabs were litterly fried alive. Atleast they are fresh? 

The 'stinky tofu' is a popular snack in Taiwan. Extremely de-li-cious! Garentee :D 

Not only you can find tapioca pearls in your bubble tea but also in many desserts!
They say you can loose weight by eating these bubbles as well~

Toxic? Naaaw just sugarcane juice :)

  1. I bet the mood was nice indeed! It sure does look like it! Do I want to know why exactly it is called "stinky" tofu?

    Mmmmmm, strawberries! :3

  11. I went to Taiwan a few years ago ... to transfer onto another flight so I stayed in the airport for a few hours. that doesn't count does it? haha

    but one day when I do stay in Taiwan, I'd definitely go to the markets. I can just imagine the smell of them now!

  16. Love the food pics. I tried stinky tofu before in Hong Kong, but it's really not my thing. I love the "tau fu fah" though. I like how the Taiwanese put in those pearls for extra chewiness.
    I actually want to try those crabs. I love crabs :D
