Taiwan Travel with Children - Raohe Street Night Market 饒河街觀光夜市

10 years ago, during B.C. (before child) time, we visited Taiwan and we loved visiting Shilin Night Market (士林夜市). Even though it was very crowded, we enjoyed the great variety of Taiwanese street food there. Fast forward, it is now A.C. (after child) time. We brought the children to Raohe Street Night Market  (饒河街觀光夜市) after we visited to BabyBoss (read our day at BabyBoss). 



You won't miss this the moment you walk into Raohe Street Night Market - pepper pie (胡椒餅)! We were there early, after we bought ours, a long queue started to form! It was piping hot, and the filling was very tasty.




As many eatery stalls were not ready yet, we walked around for window shopping. There are many shops that sell shoes, bags, handphone accessories and so on. My only damage was a set of washi tapes!

After walking for some time, the children were very tired. In order to find a seat for the children to sit down and rest, we visited an eatery that sold grilled seafood. The two dishes were NT100 each.




The seafood stall owner was kind enough to let us bring in Taiwanese sausages for the children.



When I saw the customers eating baked potato with cheese, I couldn't stop salivating! Though there were not many people, it took a while for the stall owner to prepare the food. The cheese sauce was really delicious, just that it was too cold.



The chicken cutlet was as big as my face. What a pity that I didn't manage to take the photo of the whole piece.



I was looking forward to try the grilled beef cubes (NT100) as the stall owner was preparing the food. And immediately after I ordered, a queue started to form. However, it turned out to be too well done to my liking.




There is a great variety of food at Raohe Street Night Market, but I wouldn't say that the food there is cheap. It was very very crowded, so it was quite an unique experience for the children to stand among the moving crowd and eat!

    1. Shilin is definitely more crowded, that's why I didn't bring my children there!

  7. I went to Raohe Market on my last Taiwan trip and had the famous 胡椒餅 too! It was so crowded when we were there and another stall that I recommend is the scallops which they also brought in to Spore! On and we had a very interesting fried milk too!

    1. The potato with cheese is nice, it would be nicer if the cheese sauce was hot!
