    Chinese Street Food Tour in Rural Xinjiang - the BEST Street food in China! We took a train from Turpan all the way to Kuqa to try the BEST and most unique street food in China! When you arrive, you instantly know you are in a new street food world, and that you can taste some of the best street food around the world in 2017!
    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.

    Feeling so sorry for Uyghur Muslims. How friendly they are and sorrowfully the chinese government are torturing on them! Now all the good west the first world countries are in silence. Because they are muslims! Sad but bitter truth.

    I'm 60% sure that the Kao 烤 Bao 包 Zi 子 (roasted bun) is made of beef instead of lamb. Because what he said sounds like Niu 牛 (beef) Rou 肉 (meat) and Yang 羊 (lamb) You 油 (lard/oil) instead of Niu Rou and Yang 羊 (lamb) Rou 肉 (meat). Some province in China have strong accent when speaking standard Chinese instead of their dialects. Sometimes it's hard for them to tell the different pronunciation between R and Y. Imagine a Chinese version of Barry Kripke in The Big Bang Theory.

    I'm truly appalled by some ignorant and biased comments here. This is an AMAZING video about delicious food and unique culture. Why do some people have to make it political?
    You cannot see any fear on these people's facea. You can barely see any police around. Yet why do some people believe Uyghurs are being slaughtered and imprisoned?

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
