We finally found a place to seat in a restaurant which sells fried noodle. The restaurant owner is cool enough to allow us to eat the fried noodles together with all the seafood which we bought earlier on.

We also ordered some alcohols to wash our stomach. The noodle is not bad, but the highlight of the meal had to be the seafood.

If you think we were too full to eat anything else, you were absolutely mistaken. We still managed to buy a few seafood buns to accompany us on our way back to Taipei. The shrimp and oyster buns sold at Keelung Night Market are fantastic. And cheap too. ^^
