… continuation

After the tour food hunting, we left Chiayi and went to Kaohsiong (Taiwan’s second largest city) via train. The journey took us more than 1 hour or so to reach our destination. Once we were there, we looked for hotel to crash into stay. After all the checking in, we took a rest for awhile before heading off to the night market (I think it is called Liu He Night Market).

Night Street

According to the check-in counter, the distance between our hotel to the night market is about 15 mins of walking. But to our (Malaysian) calculation, we roughly estimated about 30 mins instead. Unless you consider running as ‘walking’, we had to multiple whatever they said by 2 times. Hehe.

Crossroads

Throughout our stay, I guess this night market is our most favourite of all night markets we’ve been to. Not only it is big, there were variety of foods and drinks.

Corn

Being gluttons, we bought whatever that looked delicious to us. Hehe. The picture above is grilled corn. They coated the corn with peanuts, sesame seeds, sugar and some sauce. It tastes rather …. weird. It tastes like the filling of apam balik (from Malaysia).

Dim Sum Stall

Har Mai

Dim Sum

Those are assorted dim sum. IIRC, they charged NT$50 for 4 pieces and NT$100 for 9 pieces. You can choose any of those as you wish. And yeah, they were tasty.

Takoyaki

There was only one type of taroyaki balls unlike those offered in Jaya Jusco malls whereby you could get all sorts of flavours. They taste alright to me but a lil too sweet for the sauce.

Square Watermelon

Square watermelon like what you see in television. The owner of the stall said they import the watermelon from Japan (I think). Anyway, it was there for decoration and to attract crowd.

Battered Sausages

Those are battered sausages. They came in different flavours; garlic, cheese and etc. Due to the size of it, we bought two for trying purpose. But we got conned as the batter was as thick as 0.3cm and the sausage was tiny!!

BBQ Stall

BBQ chicken wings. BBQ chicken ass butt. BBQ sausages. And other BBQ stuffs. This stall sells them all. One chicken wing costs NT$10 only. So as the chicken butt. And yeah, they were delicious.

Sugarcane Water

Me heart sugarcane water. One cup costs NT$40. They were really fresh but not so chill at all. But hey, they did crunch my thirst after eating all those stuffs.

Cow

There were more foods but I didn’t manage to capture them all. We stopped eating at about 10.30pm or so and we went back to the hotel to call it a day.
