DEEP Chinese Street Food Tour in Sichuan, China | BEST BRAIN + RABBIT (Spicy ADVENTURE)

  • Published on Oct 14, 2017
    Street Food - Chinese Street Food - BEST Street food in China
    We’re going on a BEST CHINESE STREET FOOD Tour of Sichuan, and today we are adventuring through Sichuan in search of the spiciest and best street food places in the city. We traveled to the SPICIEST Sichuan city to taste and eat the best and spiciest street food in China. In this street food tour, we had 5 super delicious and local Chinese street foods. First up, we went to a local, authentic, deep BREAKFAST joint and tried a few very delicious Chinese Breakfast fried pastries and street foods. After that, we went to a local market to explore and adventure through the thousands of Sichuan ingredients on display, and then travelled by bus to a nearby ancient town for lunch. Actually, we ate at two street food lunch spots! In Sichuan, China, you can eat some of the best street food around the world, it’s so spicy, it’s so flavourful, and it’s incredibly fragrant, known as “Xiang”. Sichuan street food in Zigong is extremely spicy!
    The two lunch spots we visited had some amazing street food. The first place had a delicious street yangroutang AKA lamb soup, and the second place served up some delicious pig brain, frog, and fish eggs. Both places were in this beautiful ancient village that you can enjoy strolling through and enjoying the scenery and of course, delicious street food restaurants! There were so many authentic Chinese recipes that the chefs were making, it will blow you away! All of it had an amazing home-cooked flavour!
    When you come this DEEp in Sichuan, the food gets spicier and spicier as you go, so make sure to prepare yourself, cause sometimes it gets super hot!! To finish the day off, we went into the back of a little neighbourhood and enjoyed some amazing rabbit in a bowl. It was so spicy and fragrant because it had a bunch of mushrooms and roast peanuts inside!
    You can follow along this whole tea horse road series as we travel through China on a 6 week street food tour and Chinese cuisine journey all the way through Sichuan and then down south into Yunnan to eat and taste the best, authentic, and spiciest street foods, enjoying the company of friendly locals along the way! This is why China is the best place for street food in the world, there is so much to try!!
    If you’re thinking of traveling through China for street food or even living in China (you could move here just for the food), you really must explore Sichuan’s deep markets and back streets! There really is a lifetime worth of food and ingredients to cook delicious recipes with! Come hungry with an open mind to chat with locals and have a good time! It helps if you study a little bit of mandarin first! The locals are all so friendly!
    Here in China, Chinese street food and Chinese cuisine is so varied and abundant and diverse that you couldn’t eat it in your whole lifetime. We consider ourselves very lucky to be able to live in Chengdu, Sichuan, eating delicious Sichuan street food and tasting new and enticing street foods almost every day.
    Here are the addresses for the street foods in this video:
    1) DEEP Chinese Breakfast Joint:
    2) Homemade Chinese Lamb Soup (in the old ancient village on the tea horse road)
    3) Pig brain, frog, and fish eggs (in the old ancient Chinese village on the tea horse road)
    4) Super delicious pork spare ribs
    5) Amazing Rabbit pot

    Don't know about the USA/Canada but here fatty cuts & organs are the cheapest cuts so I expected your 2nd & 3rd meals to be a heck of a lot cheaper. Maybe because you were in the middle of nowhere or you being a tourist but I feel you really overpaid here

    I think they're amazed that you can speak Chinese as much as you're amazed at the food. If you're Caucasian and can speak Chinese, you're a KING in China.

    Enjoy your videos, especially about Sichiuan. Been there in 2008 to help & cheer up those school kids who lost their parent.
    We were the 1st Western people they ever met, they said. And as foreigners from far away to help them....
    They were so grateful and very, very friendly. Unlike the Press News, we hear about China today.
    You really pick the perfect meals there which I missed.

    Steamed cornbread on cornhusk is very similar to Mexican tamales. We also have corundas, which are steamed corn dough in fresh corn leaf wrappers in a unique shape. They are a prelude to Mexico!

    Hi Trevor , don mind me asking you one question. Why are u promoting msg as if it's very normal and healthy? To be honest nobody in Singapore use msg it's very unhealthy and only cooks with no skills use msg. I won't be surprise u promote plastic rice "oh wow!! This rice is so tasty and chewy, it's made out of plastic".

    Hej Ranger, I was kind of forced to watch your show by my girlfriend. I still dont get it how I got hooked to it but thats not my actual question. My original question is, whats up with the prices of the food you are posting? I think its really expensive if you take into concern that they are usually served in a shady place (no doubt they are tasty). Am I missing something? Also, very happy for you for having fun in what you are doing. Cheers!
