    I’ve been searching for the best street food in China for a long time, and have to say that when it comes to Chinese street food, some is good, some is bad, but in Xinjiang, most of the stuff we tried was fantastic! The meat and the sloppy dumplings were out of this world! You’ll fall in love watching the delicious street food in this street food video, because we came specifically to try the best street food in China, as we make our way west along the Silk Road to the farthest part of western China. Coming here is a whole new world of Chinese cuisine. Eating Chinese food in Xinjiang is definitely one of the best street food experiences I’ve had!

    We made our way to Kuqa from Chengdu. We first took the train to Xining and enjoyed the Hui Chinese muslim Chinese street food and then took the train to Turpan and onwards to Kuqa, our final destination being Kashgar. The dishes we have been eating so far really reminds me of central asian street food. From the super flavor packed hand pulled noodles, to the roast deep tandoori baozi, it’s a great destination for food.
    So far I’ve eaten street food in Chengdu, street food in Hong Kong, street food in Guangzhou, Street food in Shanghai, and street food all around Asia, but something as simple as the street food here in Xinjiang (Kuqa) really impressed me!
    All the street food we tried, in particular the hand pulled noodles, which tasted like spaghetti, was fantastic! Even the bbq kebabs were amazing as well. The locals here speak Uighur and a little Chinese, so I got by communicating with them in Chinese, but would be better if I picked up some Uighur. Overall, our experience eating in Kuqa, Xinjiang was amazing!
    Here are the locations in this street food video:
    1) Roast Tandoori Nang Bread -
    2) Sunday Market (Featuring Hand pulled noodles, pumpkin baozi, and roast tandoori baozi)-
    3) Huge meat nirvana feast -
    My name is Trevor James and I'm a hungry traveler and Mandarin learner that's currently living in Chengdu, Szechuan, China, eating up as much delicious .
    I enjoy tasting and documenting as many dishes as I can and I'm going to make videos for YOU along the way! Over the next few years, I'm going to travel around the world and document as much food as I can for you! I love delicious food! This channel will show you real Chinese food and real local food, not that stuff they serve in the Buzzfeed challenge.
    Thanks for watching, and please feel free to leave a comment, suggestion, or critique in the comments below!

      Turkmenistan. We call it Piyaz on the East and North and on the South and West Sogan. Piyaz is persian word same as Sheker which is sugar and NAN-which is NANG and Gösh- which is Gwash in Chinese. So the silkroad(musims) have given lots of these words to modern world. Its about more than 2000 words that are included only in Spanish and same in English from arabs and persians(muslim cultures). By the way, spagetti also has persian origin and it was contributed from turkics of Ottomans at times of Reneusans of Venece. All luxury(Muslim hadcrafts) and spices of Indo-Pakistan at that time were comming through Ottamans, Egypt, Persia, Timurids and have been contributed to EU livestyle.

    It's brilliant Trevor can understand almost completely the Mandarin, in my opinion this is no need to pronoun the perfect Mandarin, and even we Hong Kong people not much can do it. Trevor is a Canadian and his language talent and the different cultural acceptance are already made us appreciated him very much. Very enjoy your videos, please keep traveling and eating. :D

    Why do you say 'it almost looks like spaghetti with veg'?? It's Bahn Mien(sp?). It looks NOTHING like spaghetti. It looks NOTHING like a 'vegetable sauce'. And I am willing to bet, that it TASTES NOTHING like spag'nVeg either!? We can SEE what it is...so, CALL IT what it is!? We're not so 'food illiterate' that you need to compare it to the closest thing we could *potentially* relate it to.
