Keelung Night Market Food

Keelung Night Market is located in the center of Keelung City. The rise of the night market has much to do with the Dianji Temple. In the early days, pilgrims to the temple would gather at the temple; sometimes outdoor performers and other entertainers would perform near the temple as well. Street vendors selling food and drink were in turn attracted to the area by the large amount of foot traffic, and all of these factors contributed to the rise and prosperity of Keelung Night Market. The number of vendors increased and the night market gradually stretched from its center at Ren 3rd Road into Ai 3rd Road and Ai 4th Road. This is the famous Keelung Night Market, the prime tourist attraction of Keelung. The characteristic of Keelung Night Market's snacks is that vendors present all of their dishes clearly in front of customers. Every individual dish served in the night market has its own flavor and history. Keelung Night Market's exhibition hall of delicious food and snacks is open year-round, displaying a wide variety of dishes made from rice, flour and beans, as well as seafood, meats, desserts and frozen treats. Many food experts praise Keelung Night Market as having "the largest variety of dishes in the whole of Taiwan". Some famous dishes include tempura, dingbiancuo (potside scrapings), sandwiches, chicken rolls, butter crab, thick bean-sprout soup, fresh seafood, pork knuckle, braised eel soup, bubble ice, etc.
