There’s A Taiwan Night Market At Waterway Point With Street Food, Carnival Games & Live Music

Taiwan Night Market at Waterway Point

Scarfing down street food, playing carnival games, and soaking in the ambience of a bustling Taiwanese night market is an absolute vibe. What if we told you that you can experience that without having to fly all the way to Taipei, but just taking the MRT to the far end of the North-East Line?

Punggolites have it good this month, because the Taiwan Night Market is happening at Waterway Point’s outdoor plaza from now till 12th May 2024. Besides a diverse spread of street food goodies from XXL fried chicken cutlets to juicy king oyster mushrooms, there’ll also be game kiosks and live music performances to look forward to.

You can’t have a Taiwan Night Market pop-up without serving all the street food staples. Stroll through the stalls to find the likes of XXL Chicken Chop ($6), chewy Sweet Potato Balls ($5 for 10), and Egg Rolls (from $8) stuffed with meat, veggies, and crispy you tiao AKA dough fritters.

For dessert, savour not only the classic Muah Chee ($6) studded with crushed peanuts or black sesame, but new-age renditions tossed in matcha, Oreo, or purple sweet potato. There are also satisfyingly crispy Crepes (from $5) which are wafer-thin, sandwiching fillings like Nutella, cornflakes, marshmallows, and rainbow sprinkles.
