[TAIPEI 台北] Day 2: Shilin night market and Yong He soy drink 士林夜市,永和豆浆

Shilin night market is a popular night market in the Shilin district of Taipei. It is considered as the largest night market in Taipei city, encompassing Wenlin road and Dadong road. Shilin market was inaugurated in 1913 but currently the market has an entire new look, which some people believed it was over commercialized. To reach there, get down at Jiantan MRT station on the red line and Shilin night market is just across the road.

士林夜市,这四个字并不陌生吧?它就坐落在台北士林区,也是最具規模的夜市之一。遍布了文林路和大东路。在1913年,士林夜市被列為市定古蹟。现在,夜市已有了全新的面貌,而且我们相信很多人和我们一样,觉得士林夜市有点商业化了。
小贴士:要到夜市,就搭红线捷运到剑潭站,走过大马路就到夜市了。

The size of Shilin night market was no joke as we were lost in there, not knowing the exact location where we were and which we we have been to. To simplify it, Shilin night market actually consists of two sections. On section is the durable good section, then the other section is the food section which directly opposite Jiantan MRT station.

士林夜市的面积可不是开玩笑的大,觉得快要迷失其中。简单来说,士林夜市分成两个部分,一个是购物天堂,而另一个是美食天堂。美食天堂就在剑潭站正对面。

We were walking clueless in Shilin night market then our nostrils were attracted by this shop. The pleasant soup scent could be senses afar. We ordered a stew pork ribs (90 NTD) and dried thin noodles (30 NTD).

就在我们毫无目的的在士林夜市走着,就被这个42年老店扑鼻的香味给叫住了。我们点了十全药炖排骨(90新台币)和干面线(30新台币)。

Stew pork ribs tasted alike our bak kut teh soup with the exception it was less oily and has the natural soup sweet taste. The dried thin noodles were nice as it was well flavoured using oyster sauce, suit us best as we are heavy tasters! 

十全药炖排骨有点像我们马来西亚的肉骨茶,只是比较少油,而且带有自然的甜味。老实说,干面线的外表让我们没有太大的期待。但捞一捞让那蚝油汁均匀的与面线混合后,重口味的我们就直接爱上了那浓实的酱味特!

How could we missed out the renowned Shilin night market fried chicken cultet? It is located at a corner of shilin night market, and there will always be a queue for it. The staff will come and diligently ask how many pieces you would like to order and give you the corresponding paper bag for it.

看到这士林夜市出名的豪大大鸡排,怎么能错过呢?坐落在士林市场旁边的一个角头间的店铺,有着很长的队排着。他们蛮有程序的,在我们排着队时,就有员工给我们下单,然后依据几个鸡排来分发纸袋。轮到你时,只需要告诉员工你的鸡排要辣还是不辣,弄开你的纸袋让他把鸡排塞入就好了。

The chicken cutlet (70 NTD) was undeniably one the best we have tried. It was gigantic in size and two of us could barely finished it. The chicken meat was well flavoured, crispy, soft and tender. Even though it has deep fried, it was not too dried thus very nice for biting.

豪大大鸡排(70新台币)无可否认是我们目前吃过最好吃的鸡排。这个巨大鸡排,连我们两个人都有点难吃完。鸡排被腌制的很够味,里头嫩嫩而外层非常脆。就算鸡排已被油炸,可是并不会太干,咬起来香脆有汁。

We got thirsty during the queue thus Shirleen went to the shop neighbouring here for a cup of honey with bitter gourd juice (60 NTD). It was a weird combination but nice to drink, as the bitter taste will come after the sweet taste.

排队排到口渴,Shirleen 就跑去隔壁摊买了杯蜂蜜苦瓜汁。还蛮特别的饮料组合,苦味就在甜味之后。

There were many things in Shilin market which could consume our time here, such as indulging in the various board games, savouring local dishes at the eatery but we moved on back to homestay for an early rest.

士林夜市可真好多东西看,玩,买,要是想一一尝试可能会用一整晚吧?可是我们还是想回去民宿,早点休息。

We realised that Taiwanese really gave their fur kids best support as they brought them to night market even!

我们发现台湾人真的超爱他们的狗狗,还把他们狗狗带去夜市呢!

However, how could the ravenous eaters like us gave up the chance for a supper? Instead of getting off at Taipei City Hall MRT station to head back homestay, we get down at Wingchun station and headed for Yong He Dou Jiang Soybean, located at Zhongxiaodonglu.

Yong He Dou Jiang soybean is a popular eatery in Taiwan and its outlets are easily seen in Taipei City. They are popular as a breakfast or supper outlet.

说好的早点休息呢?贪吃的我们那会错过宵夜呢?我们本来是该在市政府站下车回民宿,可是却在永春站下了。为的就是去坐落在忠孝东路是的永和豆浆。

永和豆浆可是在台湾蛮出名,在台北有很多分店。好多人都爱去永和吃早餐和宵夜。

We spotted something special on the menu during order - salty soy bean (25 NTD). It turned out not to be our cup of tea. The salty soy bean came with youtiao, onion, raddish in the soy bean, which tasted salty and sourish. It was just not something we know how to enjoy.

在餐单上,我们看到了一个特别的食物-咸豆浆(25新台币)。很可惜,又不适合我们的口味。咸咸的豆浆,加了油条,葱和萝卜。吃起来有点咸又有点酸。

The hot soy bean (20 NTD) was superb though. It has natural soy bean taste, silky smooth and does not taste sweet artificially. No wonder it is a popular place for breakfast.

热豆浆(20新台币)真不错。没有加太多的糖,滑滑的豆浆喝起来味道蛮自然。难怪这里是个早餐的好地方。

The youtian (15 NTD) was long in size and crispy, with a tad of saltiness. It was too long till both of us hardly could finish it!

油条(15新台币)很长也很脆,加了点咸味。油条太大条了,我们吃不完!

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 2: Shilin night market and Yong He soy drink 士林夜市,永和豆浆

Chinese omelette with meat floss (30 NTD) was something alike popiah with skin wrapping the omelette and meat floss. We felt the meat floss was too dried for our liking as they sticked to our teeth. However, playing around with 9 different condiments provided for the dish was fun and great!

肉松蛋饼(30新台币)有点像薄饼,薄薄的皮包了蛋和肉松。我们个人觉得肉松有点干和粘牙,但是让蛋饼点9种酱汁还蛮好玩的。

Total damage for supper was 90 NTD only! How affordable for a nice supper! 

二人宵夜总花费才90新台币而已,太值了!

When the time we walked back to our homestay, we dropped by at 7-11 and bought this mineral water "Drink more water". Taiwanese really have a creative way of naming their products! 

走回民宿时,我们进了Seven买矿泉水。有趣的是它的名是“多喝水”,台湾人太会为他们的产品取名呀,很逗趣!
