There is nothing to say if this is not the most opulent fish market I ever have seen. I think the name “Taipei Fish Market” is used to create a familiar and local sense, and help to easily find the location on Google Maps as it is not the same like the usual fish market at all: no foul smell – no fishy smell – no water spreading all over. It is exactly the seafood restaurant and supermarket. Now, me review seafood experience at Taiwan’s most famous fish market – Taipei Fish Market.

How to get to Taipei Fish Market (Addiction Aquatic Development)
Getting to this place is not complicated at all. Take the MRT to get to Xingtian Temple Station, get off Exit 3, turn right and take an 800-meter walk along Song Jiang Road, then search the Google Maps.
If you don’t want to walk, you can catch a taxi at about 100 TWD.
It takes from 10 to 15 minutes to get to the fish market by walk. There is a high-speed crossing bridge that makes you wait for a long time for the green light that allows you to go across the other side of the road. This is quite diffused but does not worry, believe in Google Maps as it shows the right way. Finally, I got to this luxurious fish market.
What to eat at Taipei Fish Market?
Once you go into the Taipei Fish Market, you need to take a walk around, leave the outdoor restaurant to get to the backward area, called Addiction Aquatic Development. This is the area to explore.
At first, there is a friendly guard spraying hand sanitizer when you first step in, then step through the glass door to go inside. It was shocking that I only saw the Emperor Crabs, no fishes. They were so big in every lake in order of price from 50 USD to nearly 400 USD, the huge ones. When I quickly left, a man was carrying a big emperor crab that was bigger than my face several times. I had my heart in my mouth.
This fish market is divided into 3 zones
The first zone is designed as a seafood supermarket
There are processed kinds of fish (cut into pieces), canned in neat, but they look eight times fresh than the ones at Aeon Mall. This area is for those who travel on a budget as you can save money, buy the food and then move to the outside area (a separate dining area) to eat. The place is very clean, remember to clean up the waste and throw them in the right rubbish bin.
