Kaohsiung Night Market left me not only the memory on the taste bud, but also the touch of human feelings. No matter how late the night is, you can call three or five friends to ride the locomotive to the night market, find a favorite stall to sit down and have something to chat with. At this time, the night market is actually the habitat of the soul that has no place in the night.

The bed and breakfast is only three minutes away from Liuhe Night Market, wearing a flip-flop and walking in three steps and two steps. Order a bowl of small moon, with a large sausage and small tube to eat. The young woman who is busy cooking is a young pregnant woman, and her mother is diligently packing up the table where the guest leaves. The family together maintained a livelihood, and for a long time did not see such a scene of fireworks.

Grilled sea prawn, large intestine package small intestine, all the way from the beginning to the end, finally found the mullet. A piece of grilled mullet with a piece of green onion and a white radish, the salty taste of the mullet roe in the mouth is covered by the spicy taste of the green onion, and finally dispelled by the lightness of the white radish, interesting way of eating, with a strong layering.
