No.167, Zhongzheng Rd., Fengyuan Dist., Taichung City 420, Taiwan (R.O.C.)
In Taiwan, many night markets have sprung up around temples, which makes a lot of sense if you consider the temple as a community gathering spot that has always had snack vendors outside, and some of them therefore grew into full-blown snack markets or night markets. As with Miaokou Night Market in Keelung, Fengyuan Night Market in Taichung running from midday all the way to midnight also has a temple that serves as the backdrop to this street of gastronomical fun.
Among so many different vendors within Fengyuan Night Market, Qingshui Pork Rib Noodle is no doubt a crowd magnet. The deep-fried pork ribs are soaked in the noodle soup, which add to the complexity of the yummilicious dish — queuing is inevitable though. Named one of the must-eat places at Fengyuan Night Market, Mantingfang Beef Noodle is surely another eatery not to be missed. Fengyuan Night Market is abundant in all kinds of traditional Taiwanese delicacies. From pork ribs in spices and herbal soup, stinky tofu, oyster omelette to bawan and sugar roasted chestnuts, there is something for everyone.
We understand the pain that you go through while strolling down those streets in the sweltering hot summer. Fret not, a number of tea houses and restaurants are in the proximity, where you can sit back and relax without sweating like a pig. If you happen to be a cinephile, there is a quaint cinema with its facade covered by enormous hand-painted movie placards of the current shows just sitting right next to the night market. Whether you are looking for yummy goodies to fill your tummy or some various entertainments to enjoy your leisure time with more fun excitement, Fengyuan Night Market won’t disappoint.
