Seven tasty Meat Sticks you can enjoy at Night Market
Snacks on sticks are a convenient and abundant novelty at Night Market Cleveland. Ranging from familiar meats like chicken and steak to squid, mackerel, and chicken gizzard— there are a surplus of options for every omnivore. These snacks are also extremely affordable, which creates the perfect opportunity to try something unfamiliar more than once.
#1. Squid on a stick — $4 (Han Chinese Kabob & Grill, 3710 Payne Ave.)
In Cleveland, it’s not often that you see squid being cooked on a stick in the street, so you might as well be bold and give it a taste. This mild-flavored and slightly chewy squid maintains it’s purple color as it’s cooked directly on the grill over the fire. They also offer lamb, sausage, fish ball, and flat needlefish kabobs for those less daring at $2 each.
#2. Thai-style sausage — 3 for $5 (TY FUN Thai Bistro, 815 Jefferson Ave.)
Try a savory Thai-style sausage cooked over charcoal until they’re plump and roasted. These sausages are a Night Market exclusive snack offered by popular Tremont-based restaurant, TY FUN (pronounced “typhoon”).
#3. Fried chicken gizzard skewers — 2 for $5 (Miega BBQ Restaurant, 3820 Superior Ave.)
Did you know that chicken gizzards are an excellent source of iron? If you’re a fan of chicken, you’ll love their delectable rich fried dark-meat flavor.
#4. Mackerel fish sticks — $4 (Banh Mi and Noodles Asian Bistro, 3820 Superior Ave.)

#5. Beef skewers— $5 (Thai Thai, 13735 Madison Ave.)
Thai Thai is Cleveland’s hot new Bangkok street food destination. Fantastic fragrances are constantly wafting from their booth at Night Market and it’s no wonder that there always seems to be a line. They serve up fire fresh beef, thai sausage, and bacon wrapped on a stick among many other dishes.
