TAIPEI, TAIWAN (TTNews) – Wanhua District, formerly known as Bangka in Taiwanese or Mengchia in Mandarin, is Taipei’s oldest district. Many people came from the central or southern regions of Taiwan were gathered here, struggling to make a living. Wanhua District is also home to historic buildings, such as Longshan Temple. Longshan is also regarded as the centre of a number of well-known night markets, including Huaxi Street Night Market, Guangzhou Street Night Market and more. Wanhua in the minds of Taipei residents is recognized as a gourmet’s paradise, in which a great assortment of traditional and nostalgic Taiwanese snack can be found here.

Situated right across Longshan Temple in Wanhua District of Taipei, today’s Bangka Park was formerly known as a temporary shopping mall about a decade ago. There were nearly 400 booths nestled inside the mall, featuring all kinds of things for sale, such as snacks, jewelry, clothing, records, antiques and more. Although the shopping mall was no longer existed, there are still a considerable number of tasty traditional snacks worth remembering.

Some of these snack shops opened in the peripheral area of Longshan Temple have at least over 50 years of history, including LiangXiHao Fried Squid in Starched Thick Soup, Hsinchu Pork Stuffed Meatball, Cheng’s Family Tainan Steamed Rice Cake, Chou’s Savory Congee, Jin Cai Hand-sliced Noodles, Su’s Pork Stuffed Meatball & Steamed Rice Cake, ZhongYi Rice with Pork Chop, Long Ye Xiang (Dragon Night Fragrance), Su’s Chicken Fried with Sesame Oil and more.
