Taiwan Night Markets–Just for Fun

4:05 PM

On April 14th 2012, Pasadena is putting on a Taiwanese Night Market event showcasing the culinary expertise of my people.

Inspired by Loretta Wang’s post from her trip to Taiwan I’ve decided to share a few photos from my last trip overseas. I hope to give you guys an idea of what to expect if you head out to Pasadena this weekend. (or in the future if you decide to take a trip out there)

Night markets are all about the experience. The crowds, the smells, the endless variety of exotic food - it’s a sensory onslaught in the most delicious way. Pair that with all the bright lights, vivid colorful signs, and legions of delicacy craving, deal seeking co-adventurers and you pretty much have the perfect night out on the town.
