Keelung Miao Kou Night Market Taiwan

While browsing through my photos, I saw a couple of nice Taiwan food photos when Janice and I were in Taiwan last year which I have yet to share here. It was Day 3 of our Taiwan trip when we dropped by this famous night market in Keelung district. Better known as Keelung Miao Kou Night Market, the crowd there was huge with food available everywhere.

"Keelung’s Miaokou Night Market is famous throughout Taiwan for its large selection of food.  The night market is easily accessible on foot for most travelers arriving from other cities. From the Keelung railway station walk east straight along the street following the harbor in the direction of the Keelung Harbor Bureau (identifiable at night by its large orange neon sign. The night market is roughly one block from the point where you cross a freeway overpass."

I was told the crowd that night was lesser than usual due to a slight shower before we arrived

I was actually glad to see the signs for the food stalls in Keelung Miao Kou Night Market as they have it in English as well as the usual Mandarin. Sad to say I can't read Mandarin hence the trip to Taiwan was an adventure of sorts. Anyway I found out the reason it's called "Miao Kou" which translates to "in front of the temple", as in the middle of the night market we could find the Dianji Temple.

Are you ready to check out what we had that night? Well, our Taiwan Trip was essentially an extended food trip, hence before reaching Keelung Miao Kou Night Market, we already had our fair share of nice Taiwanese food. That did not stop us from ordering and taking more nice food into our stomachs as evident from the photos below.

Taiwan Sausages

Even in Malaysia, I love to eat these "Taiwan Sausages" which were essentially pork sausages with a really nice flavour to it. The sausages are really oily, much oilier than the ones we get in Malaysia, but it was all good as I finally got to munch on Taiwan Sausages, "in" Taiwan.

Assorted Spring Rolls

Walking around Keelung Miao Kou Night Market, I was attracted to unique food, and the Assorted Spring Rolls caught my attention with its various colourful ingredients. There was a long queue to buy these spring rolls made out of assorted vegetables. It tasted good, just like the bright coloured ingredients it was rolled in.

Now, while I was the one going for all those oily fried stuff, Janice will always go for the healthier soupy stuff. That explains our gap in body size, which I am hoping to change as I work towards eating healthier food. Taiwan soup dishes did not differ much from what we have here in Malaysia, but it was really tasty all the same. Well, I guess this concludes my short writeup on our stop at Keelung Miao Kou Night Market. Probably when more photos are being processed, I will share more from our Taiwan Trip.
