The Ultimate Food Guide to 2019 Richmond Night Market, especially if you have limited budget!

Recently, I did a series of Instagram stories on spending just $30 (excluding the admission) in this year’s Richmond Night Market, and many love it! Therefore, I decide to come up with an ultimate food guide for you, especially if you have limited budget. This year’s admission is $4.95 per person, with an option to purchase the Express Pass for $28 (include 6 visits). If you are planning to go only once, I prefer just getting the one-time pass. The line up doesn’t seem to have much difference, to be honest.

I was lucky to be invited to a media event, hosted by ChineseBites and Tourism Richmond. I tried 25 stalls in the Richmond Night Market, and I was surprised by this year’s creativity and overall quality of the food. Concluding my two visits to Richmond Night Market, here are the top 10 food items that you should try on your next visit.

If not, there is now a reason for you to pay a visit. J & G Fried Chicken originated from Taiwan, opened its first ever location of North American in Vancouver in December 2018. The shop features using fresh and high-quality chicken for all its menu items. A few weeks ago, I was invited to a media event to try their food item, and it then becomes one of my favourite stalls in the food court. Though I found some items are on a saltier side, others are delicious!
