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!
One of the most memorable street food we had was a freshly grilled Taiwanese corn on the cob. As simple as it sounds, it was delicious!
Since returning from the trip, we couldn’t wait to recreate a simplified homemade version of this tasty Taiwanese night market corn on the cob in Instant Pot!
Time to make some Instant Pot Taiwanese Street Corn!!
