Taiwan: Ximending & Huaxi St Night Market

After too much of self-taken pictures, we then decided to explore the street of Ximending.

Look at the sun, it is the hottest day in our trip. Show Luo's Stage truck spotted. We then went to Watson to get some stuff, before visiting the Ximen Red House, more information on Ximen Red House here.

We did abit of sight seeing in the Red House, the place also sells creative stuffs like the Pico Baby, a robot-look-alike which is made out of used batteries. We bought postcards and penbag there.

The cute bookmark + penbag for NT100/each.

We got tired after so much of walking and we decided to rest in 7-Eleven and have a try on their bento, the one we have above is pork chop (NT$55) and the portion is huge. Love the rice, Taiwanese love to use the short grain rice-which is like the one where Japanese restaurant used for making their sushi.

After that, we went to Carrefour to get some instant noodles and snacks before heading to the Huaxi St Night Market. We took a cab to the night market as our legs can no longer walk. The night market is situated opposite Long Shan Temple. Remember to pay a visit to Long Shan Temple, as it is one of the famous temple in the country.

No pictures on the market as the camera is out of battery. We tried the Tian Bu La ( seafood tempura), Lu Rou Fan ( braised pork rice), pork soup and some other delicacies, which I can't recall..sorry..I know, i fail as a blogger.

The Lu Rou Fan-braised pork rice for NT$20, cheap and delicious. The egg (NT$8)-normal and the beancurd (NT$12)-too salty.

The night market is much smaller and are not as popular as Shihlin. Not much fashion but more on food for HuaXi Night Market- Recommended if you love Snake Soup as the market is famous for it.

This day is an example of a badly planned trip, alot of time wasted and not much place visited. After, Huaxi Market, we went back straight to hotel to rest.
