Taipei - Fried Treats at Shi Yun in the Shida Night Market



The Shida market is one of the smaller night markets in Taipei, but what it lacks in size it makes up in energy. It is near a University, and on our visit it was busy with young people getting something to eat.



Above is a stall selling Shanghai-style pan-fried pork buns.

Below was one of many popular stalls we saw in Taiwan that lets you pick a mix of ingredients which get quickly cooked in a cauldron of stock and served as a to-go tub of soup.



Our destination, though, was a place called Shi Yun which serves custom pick-and-mix fry-ups.



We were standing around trying to figure out how to order when a nice gentleman waiting for his food noticed our confusion and helped us out. He told us to take a basket and take a single piece of each item we wanted. The staff would then fry up a standard-sized portion of each item you selected.



We got chicken, squid, green beans and a skewer of chicken hearts. A few minutes later, our order came out - hot, crunchy, nicely seasoned and delicious.
