I went as they opened, so it wasn't quite a "night" market, but the crowds grew so big by the time I left 2 hours later that I was glad to have missed the long lines I saw later in the evening.
The only downside to going early is that many of the vendors were not set up yet.
I don't know if they had not yet put up any signage in English or if this it....
A few had displays of their food.
Some places gave out samples.
It was fun to watch some of the preparations:)
I decided on grilled squid for my first bite and just as in Asia, none of the cooks spoke English.
The squid on a skewer for $6 was HUGE and delicious with a spicy BBQ sauce!
After walking around all the food stalls twice, I settled on a steamed bun for my next bite.
This was the biggest bun I've ever eaten, at least 6" in diameter and very very hot.
I chose seafood with a side of garlic sauce for $5.50 and it was a very savory filling choice in a pillowy fresh bun with a medium sized shrimp in the center.
Time to get some more cash before continuing my adventure....
