基隆廟口夜市 Keelung Miaokou Night Market

IMG_4672IMG20171030173637No trip to Taiwan would be complete without a visit to one of the night markets every night, at least, according to hubby 😛

Since we were at 九份 Jiufen earlier in the day, 基隆 Keelung was the most logical option for this evening. Mr J happened to be in Taipei during this period of time, so we decided to meet up at this night market.

板橋湳雅夜市 Banqiao Nanya Night Market @Taipei

Surprise, surprise! We found 板橋湳雅夜市 Banqiao Nanya Night Market, which we had never been to before 😛 Mainly because it was not so accessible via the metro and was not too near to where we usually stay, but there was a direct bus from 三峽老街 Sanxia Old Street, where we would be earlier in the day, so this was the perfect opportunity to check out this night market!

First stop was 蚵仔之家 House of Oysters, where we tried the 蚵仔餃 Fried Oyster Dumpling (NT60 for 4 pieces), and 蚵仔麵線 Oyster Mee Sua (NT90). The oyster dumplings were huge and juicy, with the juice just bursting out when we took the first bite 😮 The mixture of minced meat and oyster was very flavourful 🙂 The very generous amount of oysters made every mouthful of vermicelli a real treat 😀

Next stop was 板橋(王)好吃麻油雞 Wang’s Delicious Sesame Oil Chicken. That huge pot of sesame chicken looked really appetising, so we decided to try some 麻油雞 Sesame Oil Chicken (NT100) and 麻油麵線 Sesame Oil Mee Sua (NT30). While the vermicelli was quite standard, the chicken was quite juicy and tender.

We walked around some more, but were really too full to try anything else. Gotta come back some time to try out the other food 🙂

동대문 Dongdaemun 東大門 @Seoul, South Korea

IMG_2562

After our palace visit, we decided to pop by 동대문 Dongdaemun 東大門 for an early dinner, and to explore the area.

We took the subway to 동대문역 Dongdaemun Station  東大門站 (Subway Line 1 or 4 Station No. 128 or 421) and saw the famous 흥인지문 Heunginjimun Gate 興仁之門, before having a simple 치즈 라면 (Chijeu Ramyeon) Cheese Ramen 奶酪方便麵 (₩3,500) and 고기만두 (Gogi Mandu) Meat Dumplings 肉馅饺子 (₩3,000), at a local eatery, which appeared to call itself as 興仁之門 (since it was located just in front of the gate). The food was simple but satisfying.
