Night it up is a three day outdoor food event from July 15 to July 17, 2016 (dates change every year) featuring street style food and games that one would find at an authentic night market in Asia. I love going to Night It Up! It’s something that I look forward to going every year around July. It brings back memories of how I used to go with my family while I was still a child in Taiwan.
Every year, I would always go on the first night and that’s when alot of people go as well. But here’s the thing…it is super packed on the first night. It’s fine for those people who enjoy the crowds and excitements. So I’ve finally learned my lesson after years of goin on the first night: going on the afternoon of the second day (I cant believe it just hit me that i could do that). Not only can I walk around at my normal pace, I also didn’t have to wait 30 minute for every food vendor that I want to try out. 😀😀😀😀 So here’s a tip: go on the second or third day!
Thai iced tea drink in a bag
This was such a super cute idea: serving thai iced tea in a bag. For some reason….it just seems more authentic when it’s served in a bag. We don’t see it often here in Toronto…but actually, it is quite common in alot of Asian countries.
Japanese raindrop cakes from @aaagrills
I’m so glad this raindrop cake is finally available here! It was super hyped up on instagram a while back..and i’ve always wondered how it would taste like. It taste like a jello!!
Taiwanese oysters pancake
Classic taiwanese street food. 😄😄 if you ever visit taiwan…you will see this everywhere.
Taiwanese fried chicken from Kanpai snack bar
Rice burger with fried chicken
Ramen burger with fried chicken
I love how innovative n creative this was! Looks super appealing and guess what? It tasted just as good! Chicken was crispy, tender and juicy.
This sakura kakigori was so amazing! It was as if I have been transported to Japan! It was light and refreshing..perfect for a hot summer day.
Paper net fishing
You have not experienced a real night market if you haven’t tried to catch a fish with a paper net!!! It takes some serious skills but I’ve seen people catching 4-5 fish without breaking the net!!! (Too bad i’ve never had any success) Best part about it is that you get to take home whatever you catch!
Parking: lots of free parking on the streets.
