Lehua Night Market is a street food market in New Taipei City that focuses on locals. It doesn’t have any special dishes, but it’s worth visiting if you’re in the area.

Until I moved far away from Lehua, I used to go there all the time. That’s because it’s a non-touristy night market. Thus, there’s a more authentic feel to it. And I want to help you determine whether it’s worth visiting when you’re in the area.

I also had these cheese-filled corn dogs once. But I don’t want to recommend them since they’re not really “Taiwanese.” If you’re an American longing for diabetes-inducing foods, then sure, go for them.

I can’t remember the stand’s name, but it was close to the entrance. And the staff there spoke English.

Other than food, visit the clothing shops. You’ll find a lot of affordable clothes.
