While Nanjichang is not a common street food market that you’ll find on a typical Taipei best night market list, I consider it a hidden gem.
It has many dishes featured on the Michelin Bib Gourmand List and primarily serves locals. For those of you who are curious, the Michelin Bib Gourmand List awards restaurants that serve customers stellar, affordable dishes.
Because of this, you likely won’t see hiked prices that other tourist night markets have.
As for the history of the Nanjichang Night Market, it was initially an airstrip used for the Japanese military when Japan occupied Taiwan before and during World War II. Moreover, the Japanese government constructed many buildings in this area.
However, now the Nanjichang market is a bustling ocean of street food vendors in Wanhua District, near many other night markets in Taipei.
