We heard that Fengchia Night Market was the largest in Taiwan, so when in Taichung, we had to check it out!
We couldn’t help ourselves. There’s an advantage to being the first stall at the opening of the street to the market, people stop and buy. Like we did. Here are mini-crabs fried up. Add some seaweed salt flavoring and you’re ready to go. The next stall we stopped at too! Seared Beef!Getting the torch out And there you have it Grilled Squid? How about grilled Sea Snail and Abalone? It actually looked better than it tasted, not enough seasoning How about a deboned Chicken Thigh, wrapped in it’s own skin? Why yes please, thank you. On a stick no less! How about one of my favorites? Da Chang Bao Xiao Chang 大腸包小腸? Or the Taiwanese Sausage wrapped inside a Rice Sausage?Here they add extra ingredients like cucumbers and radish. An interesting take. Fried Squid! We ate so fast I forgot the pictures of Bubble Tea, Fried Pork, Oyster Mee Sua, Chicken Pie, Fried Chicken, Sweet Potato Balls and Egg Waffles.
We wondered why they called this the biggest market in Taiwan. Until we realized that we didn’t even cover 50% of it, that we had no idea there was another section! Another time!
