Ningxia Night Market Tours

4 reviews
Ningxia Night Market
Set amid the historic houses of one of Taipei’s oldest neighborhoods, Ningxia Night Market offers a taste of traditional Taiwan with its age-old street vendors and neon-fronted buzz. Here, locals and tourists mingle in search of an evening snack, and enjoy smaller crowds than you’d find at the more famous Shilin Night Market.
 
The Basics
Travelers can visit Ningxia Night Market as part of a Taipei food tour, to sample lesser-known Taiwanese staples such as salty chicken, dry tofu, and mochi (sesame-coated glutinous rice balls). Another option is to take walking tour of the historic Dadaocheng neighborhood, to see centuries-old temples and teahouses as well as the market. For a personalized experience, opt for a private custom market tour.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • In the case of Ningxia Night Market, less is more; try to sample small portions of as many dishes as possible.
  • The market is a must for food lovers and first-time visitors looking to discover traditional Taiwanese cuisine.
  • If you see a long line, join it; this means the stall has a great reputation.
  • Stalls don’t often offer signage or information in English, so exploring with a guide helps you overcome the language barrier.
 
How to Get There
Take the red MRT line to Shuanglian station, and after emerging from Exit 1, take a left onto Minsheng West Road and walk for about 10 minutes to find the night market.
 
When to Get There
Ningxia Night Market is open from 5pm to 12am daily, but it's best to arrive around 8:30pm, when all of the stalls are open and the after-work crowds of locals have dispersed.
 
The Best Dishes at Ningxia Night Market
Each of Taipei’s night markets is famous for several specific dishes, whether it’s stinky tofu or fluffy Chinese pancakes. Must-try delicacies at Ningxia Night Market include fried buns with oyster and egg filling, sweet papaya milk, and chewy mochi balls smothered in crushed peanut and sesame seeds.
