I met my friends’ longing shop by chance.

I dropped in at Ningxia Night Market on my way to my hotel.

When I got to there around 8 p.m., there were many people. The market is open from 6 p.m. to the midnight.

Taipei have so many night markets, and this Ningxia night market is large market, but it is popular as Taiwanese oyster omelet. So, I wanted to eat it.
But unfortunately, I didn’t feel like eating anything because I already ate dinner, and I felt sick because of the smell of foods in the muggy air.

So, I gave up eating the omelet, but I wanted to have something and went back and forth. Then I found the tofu pudding shop by chance.
I knew this shop’s name on the guidebook.

Gu Zao Wei Tofu pudding



But when I entered the shop, I found this is so popular shop because it was featured on the popular TV show named “Kodoku no Gourmet” in Japan.
My friends loved it. Though I seldom watch TV.



They serve not only tofu pudding but also drinks and shaved ice.




I chose shaved ice.

「あれ、夜市に行ったんでないの?なんで明るい写真があるの?」という疑問が聞こえますね( ̄▽ ̄) 翌日もう一回ここに来たからです。その時撮ったんです。

I mistook the choice. I chose double jellies :p
But both was good.
Their tofu pudding have shaved ice on it.



I want be back soon for having oyster omelet at the market. I’ll visit Taipei again in November. So, without fail.
