A lot of grilled fresh seafood: grilled oysters, grilled scallops with cheese, crabs, grilled shrimp … all are very fresh, if you are a passionate with seafood, you cannot ignore these grilled stalls.
You can find this dish throughout Feng Chia night market, but they all cost 100 NT$ for a grilled beef steak and the way of seasoning and marinating for beef is nothing to criticize, extremely excellent. For those who love to eat meat like me, this place is heaven, just walk around the market, when tired, stop by the side of the road and pick a piece of grilled beef to recharge the energy and continue to explore Fengjia market.
Taiwan is known as the paradise of bubble milk tea, so even if you go to Fengjia night market, don’t forget to drink bubble tea. We chose Tiger Sugar shop and the best selling here is Brown Sugar Boba Milk with Cream mousse (97.10 TWD). Although Tiger Sugar has started to have branches in several Asian countries, but in Taiwan is still the most original store, and this brand is not yet available in Vietnam, so it must be tried, right?!
Taiwanese Egg Pancake Roll at Minglun Pancake shop
Although it is only a simple egg pancake but to buy it you have to queue long to waiting for your turn, for only 40 TWD ($1.29) for a cake. At first glance, it is just a cake that pouring a thin layer of flour on a hot pan and beating the egg on top and then rolling it up and put into a bag. But what is worth mentioning here is that very special cake flour, just bite the first piece is the taste with coconut milk spurting out along with the greasy taste of eggs, it is so delicious that I cannot utter words, a very specific flavor that only egg pancake of Minglun shop offers.
Offal with a very different Taiwanese style compares to Vietnam, with meatballs, tofu, sticky rice mixed with blood, hearts and chicken gizzards,… a very rich flavor, without a fishy smell, on the contrary is very fragrant, the colors are very eye-catching, although they seem familiar in Vietnam, the Taiwanese style is also very delicious and stimulates the taste.
