    Street Food - Chinese Street Food - Best Street Food China
    In this Chinese Street Food tour video, I take you around many places in Chengdu. First, I visited this local dan dan noodle shop near the outskirts of Chengdu, Sichuan, China, and found the Chinese street food noodle experience and the atmosphere to be mind blowing and exciting! It is always an experience visiting Chinese street food areas! So much food and Sichuan ingredients, so many flavours to try! Afterwards, I took the subway into Chengdu and found many more street food specialties.
    Please like:
    I visited this busy Chinese restaurant on a Saturday early afternoon at around 11:30 am with already two bowls of noodles in my stomach and looking for more. My goal was to taste as much food and chat with as many locals as possible, that's the true China experience.It was so busy, with so many people, there were so many different foods to eat and look at, tons of vegetable dishes, meat dishes, everything you could want really. There was fresh Sichuan cold "liangbancai", and a huge back alley seating area where everyone was sitting and feasting. All the locals were chatting loudly and enjoying a Chengdu afternoon.
    If you're visiting China as a tourist, I recommend eating at one of these "fly restaurants" (poor hygiene but delicious food) and try a bunch of the food.
    However, if you go to the place I did, DO NOT order the intestine dish. It was disgusting.
    Instead of trying hot pot in Chengdu or hot pot in Chongqing, you could try some way cooler food in Chengdu at local "fly restaurant" like this. This should be a top priority for traveling in China in my opinion!
    Chinese cuisine is so diverse, and I consider myself lucky to be able to live in Sichuan, eating Sichuan food everyday, tasting all the top Chinese foods to try whenever I want. I've decided to stay living in China for at least another 2 or 3 years and study to be a Sichuan chef to get the feel of it and eat as much as I can! I'm currently enrolled at the Sichuan Higher Institute of Cuisine.
    The addresses of the locations in the video are:
    - The Dandan noodles 红烧牛肉 (Hóngshāo niúròu)
    Address:龙泉驿区龙平路527号 (Lóngquányì qū lóng píng lù 527 hào) This is way out in Longquan, near the Longping subway station on Line 2. Only come here if you're looking to go up the mountain peach blossom area, otherwise, it's a bit far (unless you're crazy like me)
    2.The famous "fly restaurant" lunch 叁无粉蒸 (sān wú fěn zhēng)
    Address: 建设路54号(猛追湾横街中部)
    3 The sliced beef in the Chinese muslim area (Chinese Halal Food).
    Address: 成华区土桥北街6号
    This one is a bit far out as well, but this one was definitely worth the long subway ride out. It's right near Jingke beilu subway station on line 2.
    4.The steamed beef Chinese muslim style - wow this was great! Right on the street!
    马鸭子 -This is right beside the Chinese muslim sliced beef spot, just two stores down I think
    Address: 成华区土桥北街20号
    This one is also right near Jingke beliu station.
    5.Chinese muslim style Halal Lamb kebabs 羊肉串
    Address: 成华区土桥北街22号
    This one is also right near Jingke beilu station on line 2.
    6. Sichuan style red braised eel noodles鳝鱼面,拜居奇味面
    7.The spicy spicy Sichuan frog pot insanely spicy!
    Address: 武侯区科华北路101号(靠近四川大学西门)
    This is right near the west gate of Sichuan university in Chengdu, China.
    My name is Trevor James and I'm a hungry traveler and Mandarin learner that's currently living in Chengdu, Szechuan (Sichuan), China, eating up as much delicious Chinese food and Chinese street food as I can.
    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.

    I hope you enjoy the Chinese street food tour video in Chengdu! I need your help if you have a moment. I’m currently studying hard at culinary school in Chengdu and planning out my next food trip in January. I’m heading to KL, Malaysia with Chuchu and Ting Ting, then to India, Sri Lanka, and then maybe Singapore before going back to Chengdu for the next term. I need your personal recommendations for where to eat in all of these locations. Follow my Instagram at The Food Ranger and write me a direct message if you have any recommended cities (currently decided on Kolkata and Delhi) in North India, or restaurants + street food locations in any of the places I’m going. Thanks a lot! Enjoy the video!!

    What's the point of asking the person selling the food if it's good? That's like asking to be lied to.
