LIUHO TOURIST NIGHT MARKET

"Gastronomic" is the perfect word to describe in the busy pedestrian streets of Liuho Tourist Night Market. It is one of the very popular nightspots in Kaohsiung amongst locals and tourists. No wonder, when we arrived at the market, it was action-packed and crowded.

Unlike most other night markets in Asia, about 70 to 80% of Liuho's offering is FOOD. I was completely overwhelmed by the amazing diversity of dishes. Diners get a taste of authentic and unique Taiwanese cuisine ranging from fresh seafood galore, noodles, shaved ice, dumplings, congee and other local flavor snacks such as papaya milk and rice tube pudding. We also stumbled upon one stall highlighting the notorious stinky tofu. Of course, hb could never pass up the opportunity.

  1. Oh, I miss Taipei's Night Markets! We've lived in there for a year but did not get to go out of Taipei. The Husband used to managed 101. We live downtown but I love going to Shi Lin, the Snake something and the small one near 101.

    Night Markets are fun!

  3. I've got to remember the places you blogged about the next time I visit Taiwan. I've been to Taipeh twice but other than the obligatory tourist "must see" I've really not seen much of the island.

  4. my friends just came bck frm Taiwan.
    said -
    their taste totally different from ours. soups were too plain more like plain water.
    food were more to sweetness than salty flavor.
    sometime the taste was too light.
    ironically, desserts were not sweet at all.

  7. Hi Alpha Ace,

    Too bad, they didn't like the food. Perhaps some foods are an acquired taste that first-timers might not appreciate it. Taste really is subjective.


    Hi Borneo Falcon and Benedict,
    Thank you for the awards.
