You Don't Have to Visit Taipei for Great Taiwanese Comfort Food
No one can deny that Taiwanese cuisine is delicious. Are you craving some simple yet tasty Taiwanese comfort food? Turns out, you don’t need to travel 700 km to Taiwan; you can find it right here instead!
We found it at The Night Market in Kowloon Tong. The delicate fusion of Taiwanese street food flavor with elegance and style makes this a worthy restaurant to visit.
We liked their choice of typography used for their restaurant logo.
They just opened a new location on the top floor in the Festival Walk mall this May. There are several other locations in Central, Elements, and City Plaza.
We sampled 4 dishes at this Taiwanese restaurant:
Chinese watercress with preserved tofu
Pan-fried beef soup pastry
Dirty fried rice with taiwanese sausage
Crispy popcorn chicken
The Night Market decor featured Julie & Jesse Fragment pottery as well as custom dinnerware designed by Latitude 22N.
Overall, the food was quite good, reasonably priced, and not too salty. Normally, Taiwanese food can be really salty. Aside from the watercress dish, our food was not exceptionally salty, which we preferred.
Total for 4 dishes cost $300. Even without dessert, we were quite full afterwards.
What we enjoyed…
best fried rice dish in Hong Kong so far
the pan-fried beef soup pastry was a Taiwanese version of xiao long bao 👍
