If you get a chance to visit Taiwan, you’ll have to visit their night markets!!

You’ll love the full sensory experience – the energy, colors, bright signs, shops, crowd, and the luring smells of cheap street food.

So much to see, so much to buy, and so very much to EAT (that’s the time I wish I had 3 stomachs LOL~)!!

You seriously wouldn’t know where to start! hehe~

On our last trip to Taiwan, we visited one of the most delicious and popular night markets – Taichung Fengjia Night Market (Chinese: 台中逢甲夜市).

Boy, we were so glad we went! We had some of the most delicious Taiwanese street food in this night market!

Step-by-Step Instant Pot Taiwanese Street Corn Cooking Guide

Prepare Ingredients for Instant Pot Taiwanese Street Corn.

Taiwanese Pressure Cooker Corn on the Cob Recipe Ingredients

What is Shacha Sauce (Chinese: 沙茶醬)?

Shacha sauce is one of our favorite sauces and a MUST HAVE for Hot Pot!

It originated from Malaysian & Indonesian’s Satay sauce. But after years of modifications, the two sauces currently in the market are very different and distinct from one another.

Shacha sauce is more savory, full of fragrance, taste, and texture of dried shrimps. Satay sauce is a thick peanut sauce that is more sweet & spicy.

There are variations on the ingredients of Shacha sauce depending on the brand.

The Taiwanese brand we enjoy the most is 《牛頭牌》原味沙茶醬 (Bull Head BBQ Sauce).

《牛頭牌》原味沙茶醬 (Bull Head BBQ Sauce)

It’s made of soybean oil, dried fish, garlic, dried green onions, coconut powder, sesame, Taiwan mauxia shrimp, chili powder, ginger, salt, five spices, and pepper.

*Tip: You should be able to find Shacha Sauce at your local Asian groceries or at the Asian aisle of the supermarkets.

Just bought a CrispLid for my IP. I believe it could be used instead of the oven for this recipe. Your thoughts or recommendations?

If I want to grill the corn instead, do I just put the yummy sauce on the corn and go straight to the grill?
