The foods in each Taiwanese night market are pretty much the same. However each night market has some foods which are more popular and more delicious than other night markets.
Xu’s Sheng Jian Bao
Fried Bun (Sheng Jian Bao, Chinese: 生煎包)
This is one of the popular foods in Shida night market(師大路夜市). The ingredients are cabbage and pork. This bun is a little bit like “fried xiao long bao”. Unlike other dry traditional Chinese bun, this bun has a juicy filling. The outside has served with sesame that makes the bun smell much better. The juicy fillings and the crispy texture of the bun become a popular food of this store. The bun best eat in hot, otherwise the skin will become oily. But be careful with the juicy filling.
The store provides a unique spicy sauce that makes the bun more delicious. But if you do not like spicy food I think it is delicious without any sauce as well.
