Contrary to the most night markets in Taipei which are almost homogenous, Miaokou night market in Keelung is unique in the sense of the great variety of food being offered and its setup as well. The night market is called Miaokou because there is a temple located at the entrance of the market.

比起多数台北大同小异的夜市,庙口夜市在食物的种类和档口的构造比较独特。庙口夜市之所以叫庙口,就因为这些档口都聚集在奠济宫的门口外。

As Keelung is a port city which boosts the city's abundance of fresh seafood, some delicacies in Miakou temple are seafood based and only available here. On top of that, the price for food or other items here is at a bargain price comparing to Taipei. All these reasons allure tons of people flocking here everyday.

因为基隆是一座港口的关系,为这城市提供了很多新鲜海鲜,很多庙口的食物都以海鲜为主。食物的价格比起台北市更亲民得多。也是这原因,夜市的人潮每天都很多。

Miaokou temple is located within walking distance of Keelung train station. From the train station, walk east straight along the street following the harbor in the direction of the Keelung Harbor Bureau. The night market is roughly one block from the point where you cross a freeway overpass.

从基隆车站,沿着仁三路和海洋广场的方向直走,经过高架桥,过一条街就可以到达庙口夜市了。很近,走路就可以到哦。

Miaokou temple is relatively small comparing to other night market in Taipei thus be prepared to walk shoulder by shoulder with others. There is even a designated stalls with assigned numbers.

庙口夜市比起其他我们去过的台北夜市来的小,但人潮汹涌。这里的档口都有编号,很有次序。

The fame of this eel shop soup at Keelung night market has even came to our knowledge prior travelling to Keelung. It was recommended by a Taiwanese we met at train travelling from Penang to Kuala Lumpur. Indeed it was a great recommendation! According to the lady we met in train, despite the presence of many eels soup stalls in Miaokou night market, this would be the best.

我们在来台湾之前,那在槟城去吉隆玻的火车上遇到的台湾人,介绍了庙口夜市里这出名的圳记红烧鳗鱼羹。真是个好介绍呀!那台湾人说,在庙口夜市那么多鳗鱼羹,就是这档最好吃。

The eel scented soup (75 NTD) possessed a decent amount of oil, giving the soup a silky smooth texture and a nature sweet taste which were pleasant. The eels were fresh and fried prior boiling it a moment with the soup, thus the eels' tenderness and firmness were well maintained. 

这碗红烧鳗鱼羹漂着一些鱼油,让那汤更滑,还有自然甜味。那鳗鱼很新鲜,刚炸过才丢进汤里滚,所以鳗鱼很滑很紧实。

Tan Shaved ice appears to be a popular choice here as judged by the number of people queuing for a cup of shave ice. We joined the fun of queuing for a bowl of shaved ice also and was rewarded nicely.. with a cup of shaved ice.

陈记泡泡冰深受欢迎,我们都得排队才买到的。太多口味选择,我们都好想一一尝试。

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Keelung Miaokou night market 第五天:基隆庙口夜市

We ordered passion fruit shaved ice (45 NTD). The ice was silky smooth, with ice crystals were almost absent. It immediately gave a cooling effect, especially soothing during these hot summer days.

我们点了百香果泡泡冰(45新台币)那冰很柔滑,几乎没有冰沙的口感。在这炎热的夏天,这冰来的真是时候。

Tempura is something not to missed out at Miaokou night market too. We were confused which stall to pick as there were too many stalls selling tempura. We ended at stall 43, reason being there were many plates with celebrity's signature on it. 

在庙口夜市,千万别错过天妇罗。其实我们也不懂该选哪档,就随便在43号档点。我们选这档,纯粹很肤浅的因为他们有很多明星的碟子签名。

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Keelung Miaokou night market 第五天:基隆庙口夜市

Initially we thought the tempura would be like the one we had in Japanese restaurant, with prawns or vegetables that has been battered and deep fried. It turned out we were totally wrong, as tempura in Taiwan is deep fried fish. A set of small tempura cost 25 NTD and it tasted like fish cakes for us. The fish was fresh and it was not a bad choice as a snack, except it was a tad oily.

我们一开始预想天妇罗就像平时在日本料理的那种,不外乎那些脆脆的炸虾和蔬菜嘛。那里知道我们都大错特错,甜不辣是炸鱼片。一包要价25新台币,吃起来很有平时马来西亚吃的鱼片的味道。鱼很新鲜,是不错的小吃,只是觉得有点油。

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Keelung Miaokou night market 第五天:基隆庙口夜市

We were amazed by how the crowd of people queuing for this pan fried stuffed bun, thus we again joined the crowd. Thinking back, perhaps we were too kiasu and afraid to miss out the good food? 

我们又被那排长龙的水煎包档给震撼到,我们又人云亦云的跟着排。现在想回,我们太过怕输会错过美食了吧?

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Keelung Miaokou night market 第五天:基隆庙口夜市

A few of the staffs are busy stuffing raw cabbages into the bun. When we saw the amount of cabbage, we were stunned. A big steel mixing bowl full of cabbages. I am not sure whether I have consumed that amount of cabbage within a year even.

几个员工忙着把调味好的包菜塞进包子里。我们看到那么大锅的包菜下了一跳,我们应该一年内都没有吃那么大锅的包菜呢。

After the buns were ready, it will be passed to the front for pan fried. Batches and batches of buns have been served during the time we queued.

蒸好的包子,再拿去锅煎至黄金色,一批一批的包子就在我们排队时快速的卖出。

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Keelung Miaokou night market 第五天:基隆庙口夜市

The cabbage filling was piping hot and it almost burnt out tongue. However, we felt there was nothing special about it. It was just a bun stuffed with cabbages. 

包菜馅非常的烫,差点烫到舌头。其实,我们吃后的感想觉得还好而已。

We then bought this fried taro (20 NTD), just a few stalls after the pan fried stuffed buns. It was nothing special and we almost could not taste the scented taro. 

过后,又买了芋头酥(20新台币),就与水煎包几个档口的距离。又是一个普通的小吃,芋头味太淡了。

The so called famous Wow frog eggs from Shilin is even available at Miaokou night market. We ordered aiyu jelly with tapioca balls (40 NTD) but was not impressed by it. The drink was basically tasteless. 

一直在士林夜市看到青蛙下蛋饮料,庙口也卖。好吧,我们来试一杯,很失望的发现其实是爱玉冰加珍珠而已,要价(40新台币)。我们试的这杯,几乎没味道。

This three brother tauhua seems like a very successful eatery at Miaokou night market by occupying a two storey shoplot. 

三兄弟豆花生意好像在庙口夜市干得不错,占据了两城楼。

We ordered set H2 - a combination of honey taro, pop egg, tauhua and peanut (70 NTD). It was quite a decent choice of dessert. 

我们点了H2-综合了蜜糖芋 + 包心 +豆花 +花生(70新台币),是个很不错的清凉甜品。

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Keelung Miaokou night market 第五天:基隆庙口夜市

We were really unfortunate as the famous sandwich stall - 58th stall which was highly recommended by the Taiwanese lady we met the train was closed that night! We even heard some people walked past there looking for the stall and the disappointment in their faces when the see the shop was closed.

那天晚上,我们很不幸的没吃到58号档营养三明治,也是那我们火车遇到的台湾人介绍的。在我们失望的站着盯那没营业的档口,听到路过的人也说怎么营养三明治没开呀。

A piece of sausage for only 7 NTD! A long queue waiting and we were too full to take in anymore food.

一口吃香肠才卖一条7新台币!好长的队等着买他们家香肠,我们因太饱的关系所以没凑热闹。

There were too many food to be tried at Miaokou night market but our stomach has really reached its maximum capacity. I am guessing we had more than 3000kcal per day ever since our arrival at Taiwan?

庙口夜市有太多食物呼唤我们去尝试,可是我们的肚子已经饱到喊救命了。今晚的卡路里量应该高达三千了吧?

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Keelung Miaokou night market 第五天:基隆庙口夜市

Not far away from Miaokou night market, there is a modest eatery - Ah Hua fried noodles. We heard it is a renowned eatery among locals and it is open till midnight. We walked there just to have a view and saw a long queue waiting to be seated. Again, we were too full to take in anymore food we we have to terminate the urge deep inside our heart to try it.

离开庙口夜市不远,又有一家店-阿华炒面。听说这间当地人所爱,而且开到半夜。我们八卦的走过他们店,看到好长的队等着空座吃炒面。可惜,我们太饱了,只好忍痛放弃尝试,心里是特别想吃的。

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Keelung Miaokou night market 第五天:基隆庙口夜市

On the next morning, we woke up late again due to sleeping late for waiting the washing machine. Thus we quickly rushed to Miaokou night market again for a quick breakfast before departing to Badu to transfer to Hualien. There were only a handful stalls operating.

隔天早上,我们因为前天为了洗衣机熬夜,所以迟醒了。我们赶快冲去庙口夜市(现在变早市)吃早餐。接下来要去八堵,然后转站去花莲。早上,只有一些档口营业而已。

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Keelung Miaokou night market 第五天:基隆庙口夜市

We had a stewed vermicelli for 40 NTD but it did not please our stomach, both in quantity and taste.

一小碗面线(40新台币)不能填饱我们肚子,加上味道平凡。

 
Finally we spotted a sandwich stall was operating and having missed the renowned stall 58th sandwich yesterday night. We must at least try a sandwich at Keelung!

有档三明治有开档,是9号档口,所以我们一定要满足我们的心愿,排队买去!

The chefs were busy preparing omelette and spreading butter on the bread to clear up the long queue.

师傅忙着煎蛋,又为烤好的面包涂上牛油,为了尽快满足这么多排队的顾客需求。

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Keelung Miaokou night market 第五天:基隆庙口夜市

We went for a ham and egg sandwich (50 NTD), fried pork bread (40 NTD) and a cocoa milk (25 NTD). We felt what distinguished the sandwich was the mayonnaise being used, and the bread was really soft.

我们选择了鸡腿蛋三文治(50新台币),猪肉面包(40新台币)和可可牛奶(25新台币)。我们认为这两种都好吃,面包很软。如果要分辨这两种,除了面包用的不同,应该还用不同的美乃滋吧~

[TAIPEI 台北] Day 5: Keelung Miaokou night market 第五天:基隆庙口夜市

On the next stall, we saw crab fried rice and was intrigued to buy it. However due to lack of time so we have to skip it.

隔壁档卖着蟹肉炒饭,很吸引人,但时间的关系,我们只好跳过。

After the quick breakfast, we quickly rushed to Keelung train to take a train to Badu for a transit to our next destination - Hualien.

快快的吃完早餐后,我们就冲去基隆火车站搭区间车去八堵,再转站去我们下个目的地-花莲
