Taiwan 8D7N Free & Easy Tour - Shilin Night Market + Modern Toilet Restaurant

Shilin Night Market needs no further introduction as it is renowned to be one of the largest and most popular night market in Taiwan. Conveniently and strategically located near Jiantan MRT station (劍潭捷運站), Shilin Night Market is a food and shopping haven for tourists.

From Danshui Old Street, we took the MRT to Jiantian. This is our final stop for the night before we call it a day. Despite feeling a little bloated from our earlier round of snacking, we could not resist looking out for more.

I really enjoy immersing myself in the crowd and feel the vibrant of the city as the night falls.

This ginger tea is pretty good and warms our tummy... so we bought a few packets back!

Just looking at the owner flipping the meat made us drool... 

Shilin's XXL fried chicken fillet is a must try and eat. Although we do not fancy fried food as our throat tends to feel uncomfortable easily, but it helped to share among the family.

Aiyu Jelly is very common in Taiwan and a must try at the local night markets.

Of course Hubby is also very open to try new drink - Honey Bitter Gourd Juice (It isn't too can tell on our boy's face)

While walking around, we spotted the Modern Toilet Restaurant.  This was not in our itinerary but we went in as our girl has read from Famous Amos and also heard her friend sharing about the unique bathroom-themed restaurant and wanted to see it for herself.

It was still early in the night ~730pm but we were the only customer at the restaurant. I guess customers are more attracted to go to the night market at this hour. Nevertheless, we sat our on seat (covered toilet bowls) and ordered some dessert and drinks.

Dishes and drinks are uniquely served in mini urinals or bathtubs. Feels a little odd and exotic, but it is rather instagram worthy. Our various reaction to our drinks.

What we ordered - Chocolate with Marshmallow (棉花糖球可可亚)- TWD110 and Peach Calpis (香甜蜜桃可爾必思)- TWD120

Banana with Chocolate (招牌便秘黑乾屎)- TWD180 

While the themed restaurant is uniquely designed and interesting to visit, I do not find the dessert tasty. It was a fun experience though and most importantly it brought a smile on my girl's face.
