About
Jao Ho Street has become a secondary road and the business has also declined. Therefore, the government set up a night market in 1987. It is the second tourist night market in Taipei.

Hot pepper bun pork sandwich located at the entrance made in traditional oven is wonderful. Waited maybe 10 minutes in line but well worth it! Also recommend the deep fried potato balls coated with a touch of sugar, and scallion/ egg sandwich. Market is easy to get to by green subway line and easy to navigate. In my opinion, the Raohe and Ningxia are the two best night markets in Taipei.

Located next to an attractive temple, very ornate and well worth a look in. Supposed to sell the best pork pepper bun for $60 Good if you like pork, pepper and bread. Other types of tidbits and foodstuffs also available, freshly cooked or made etc. A few games stalls too. May struggle to find a parking space.

Our group tour ended at the oldest night market in Taipei right after dinner. Everyone was still full from the famously dim sum at Din Tai Fung. Ugh!!

With the gentle night air, light strung overhead on both side of the street, wondrously aroma waffling overhead, and noise level excitement you can tell that Raohe Night Market is still a pretty good market. It is only 2,000 feet long and takes only 10 minutes to walk the entire length without stopping, but you will miss everything! Since there was a good size crowd, I took my time checking out the various food stalls with baked, grilled, roasting items as well as fresh fruits and drinks and vendors selling electronic accessories, clothing, and kitchenware.

A favorite night market snack the Black Pepper Bun are stuck to the inside of small tandoor-style ovens and bake for 20 minutes. Ideally, it should be crispy and golden brown on the outside, with a juicy spiced pork and green onion filling. Mine was charred black in certain spots on the outside (oven too hot or baked too long), but the inside was very juicy. I must try another in another night market.

Hmm...what is that strange smell? Love it or hate it — the deep fried Stinky Tofu the classic Taiwanese night market snack. The odor comes from fermentation and it really taste better than it smells. Eating pickled cabbage balances the stinky tofu.

Our group of friends enjoying trying new items never found at our home town. The night market is an ideal place for grazing as a group. Usually everyone wants a bit or two, not the whole order since there is so much more to see and taste. It is fun to try.

The Ciyou Temple is a prominent landmark with all lights on at night. The temple was founded in 1753 is located at the east end of the night market. It is worth seeing.

The 6-feet high “LOVE” sign is located in front of the changing multi-color Rainbow Bridge (pedestrian) spanning the Keelung River. It is less than 4-minute walk from front entrance of the Raohe Street Night Market. This place is wonderful for photo op in the evening.

It is great fun time with FRIENDS and FOOD ... at the Roahe Street Night Market.

We find this night market better than Shilin night market. Tried many food, milk tea, snacks etc here. At the entrance, there was a stall selling pepper pork pie that had a very long queue. We bought some and it was nice.

Before the green metro line was built, you had to take a bus or taxi to get to this night market; now with an extended green metro line, it makes it so easy to get here. Songshan Metro Stop (not Songshan Airport stop) is the last station east on the green metro line and the night market is just next to the stop.

I thought the carnival like Raohe Night Market was going to be only food, but it turned out to be two rows of food carts lining the 600m street, only in the middle, between non food stores, with lots of tables & chairs for customers to sit and eat at too. It is a very long walk from one end of the market to the other.

Regular non food stores run on either side of the carts. On one side of the street are stores selling footwear, clothing, electronics, toys, souvenirs, underwear, herbs, medicines - you name it. On the other, are restaurants mixed in with same, even fortune tellers are there.

Young locals like to come to this market as it checks off all the boxes of being a great night market, offering the most popular Taiwanese foods. It’s been said that generally, locals usually do not frequent night markets because within their own neighborhoods, most foods are already offered there. Many view night markets more for tourists and young on dates. The Taiwanese love their own foods too, more than anything foreign offered to them.

Although the famous Shilin Night Market is the biggest of them all, Shilin is very difficult to navigate, tends to be overwhelming, and you can get lost. Raohe makes it simple and easy to figure out - you just walk down one side and back the other side. Metro is only a block away too.

There is also a very beautiful temple at the entrance to this night market.

Raohe Street Night Market is definitely one of the biggest and most famous night markets in Taipei, Taiwan. There is a great variety of street food from authenticity to fusion and tradition to modern.

The most popular, must-eat foods are Pepper pastries, the Braised Pork Chops in Chinese Medicine Soup, the Mochi with Peanut & Sesame Powder and the Fried Taro Ball with Salted Egg Yolk.

My favorite was the pepper pastries, which is the first stand located right at the entrance of the night market with a long line all the time. The paper pastries are covered with a crispy pocket bread, filled with juicy pork patty infused with black pepper and other spices.

Overall, It’s totally worth a visit to Raohe Street Night Market and the transportation is also convenient by MRT.

Short walk from Songshan station and next to a beautiful lit temple. Is a busy market with plenty of food stalls and different stalls selling varieties of clothing and household stuff. Sellers are friendly and the market has a vibrant atmosphere. Price of of food are reasonable and delicious. Need to spend more time looking round.

This is the best Night Market option. Very crowded in the evening, but worth the stroll through the market to see all of the food options. There is something for everyone.
