It’s day two for me in Taipei and today we’ll be using the local transportation in order to get some fresh seafood at Taipei Fish Market & Addiction Aquatic Development 上引水產. I’ve been to Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, Noryangjin & Garak Fish Market in Seoul, and when I heard Taipei had their own, I definitely had to pay a visit. There are two sides I believe to the market and one side is the Addiction Aquatic Development and the other side is the Taipei Fish Market. Before you decide to head here make sure you have cash, because I believe it is cash only unless things have changed at the Addiction Aquatic Development in Taiwan.
You’ll primarily be on the left side of the market and once entering you will immediately see the huge tanks full of live seafood. You can purchase these and I think you might also be able to ask them to cook the seafood for you as well. As you make your way through the fish market there will be tons of stations that you can visit where you can buy vegetables, fruits, seafood, and sushi. You can also go to the Seafood Bar and Sushi Bar and other sections to get a spot to eat at one of their standing tables.
I tried a few things at the market and one of the things that I wanted to try was the Taiwanese Crab, however I wasn’t a huge fan of it. I grew up eating blue crab so my palate prefers the sweetness of the blue crab over this. I also tried a few pieces of sashimi, nigiri, and also some prawns. The fish quality for my sashimi and nigiri was really good and tasted delicious. On top of it, the portion sizes are quite large. The prices here are really reasonable for sashimi and maybe on the cheaper side when comparing it back to the U.S. If you’re looking for the best seafood in Taipei, you need to come here and taste their delicious seafood. If you’re not a fan of seafood, no worries there are a bunch of meat dishes and some vegetarian dishes as well at the other counters.
After you finish eating your meal, I’ll explore the other side of the market. Outside in the middle is a sit down restaurant where you can order food I believe and on the right side of the market is frozen seafood shop. As a tourist you probably wouldn’t buy much there, so I recommend you just staying mostly on the left side of the market. If you’re wondering what to do in Taipei or where to eat in Taipei, hopeful this might make it to your list as a must try in Taipei when you visit!
