Taipei Day 3: Shida Night Market (師大路夜市)

Shida Night Market is a 5-minute walk from exit 3 of the Taipower Building Station on the subway line.

Unlike the other night markets, this place was a bit difficult to find, since there was no clear entrance to it, and it wasn't as crowded as the other markets were. The shops here remind me of Arab Street, with a mixture of regular shops and air-conditioned boutiques.

What caught my attention was this bakery I Jy Sheng, located some distance away from the main bustle.

The delightful window display spelled out the word 'supper', and we ended up bringing a couple of these buns back to our hotel for a late night snack.

My favourite would be this chives bun, one of their more popular offerings.

There was less of a crowd here than at the other night markets we went to. The best night markets would still have to be Shilin Night Market and Raohe Night Market.
