    Street Food - Tibetan Chinese Street Food - BEST Street food in China
    We found YAK SASHIMI and so much delicious Chinese Tibetan street food in West Sichuan, near Tibet! Join us on a deep Tibetan Street Food Tour! You can travel with us through this street food tour vlog and taste some of the most UNIQUE, delicious (LIKE YAK SASHIMI!), and UNKNOWN street food around the world. We traveled to Kangding, specifically to eat the best street food. First up, we went to a morning street food market and found a ton of different Yak, all laying out and ready to sell to chefs for their special Chinese/Tibetan recipes. This is the same YAK that we sampled for the YAK SASHIMI at a fancy Tibetan restaurant in the evening.
    We went to a Tibetan breakfast restaurant and had some amazingly powerful Yak organ soup, which to be honest, was not very delicious, although the spicy chili sauce was great! After that, we traveled to the local monastery buddhist temple to eat with the monks! This was truly a once in a lifetime street food temple experience! The authentic local Chinese Tibetan recipes the chefs were making were incredible! The flavours will blow you away, they all had this incredible home-cooked flavour.
    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!
    After that amazing monastery meal, we went back into downtown on the hunt for delicious street food recipes to try, and found an amazing Tibetan restaurant serving up some amazing Tibetan delicacies, like raw yak meat Sashimi, tsampa highland barley flour with yak butter and so much more!
    You can follow our travels through this tea horse road series as we travel through China on a 6 week street food tour journey and try delicious Chinese street food and Chinese cuisine all the way from Sichuan and into the west of Sichuan with Tibetan food, and then into Yunnan in the south of China! You can discover with us exactly why China is the best place for street food in the world!
    If you’re thinking of traveling through China because of the delicious street food, or even living in China for the food, You definitely must travel throughout Sichuan to taste the flavours! There is so many back street markets to explore and new delicious recipes to try! Come hungry! There is a lifetime worth of delicious street food to try! And the locals are all extremely 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) Morning Street Food Market (with the RAW yak meat and the Yak Meat Jerky!):
    2) Tibetan Chinese Breakfast (Yak Organ Soup):
    3) Tibetan Monestary Lunch:
    4) HUGE Tibetan restaurant 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.

      The Food Ranger I am so sad you went to Kham province of Tibet and you didn't even spoke a single Tibetan Language such as 'Tashi Delek' which is the most courteous and common word ever spoken amongst Tibetans and to others which roughly means ' All the auspicious may come to you'...

    Tibetan culture is the one that has been conserved the best. Especially when you compare it to other original inhabitants like Indian in the US and those in Australia. The protection and respect towards Tibetan culture is massive and comprehensive, covering every aspect like religion, architecture, language, history archives, music, ways of life. China’s government has done a great job.

    The "original" 鱼香茄子 documented on a manuscript about 2000 years ago, mentions cooking the eggplant with salted fish and huajiao(sichuan pepper). The tradition is kept in the Cantonese version of this dish 鱼香茄子煲 but is entirely lost in the rest of china, where the "椒" is also replaced by chilli (which came from colombian exchange with america) when sichuan adopted chillis into their cuisine.

    Free tibet. Chinese government is like Japanese Imperial army. They both justify invasion by emphasizing the point of liberating the people. Bhutan was the exact same government as Tibet and they are rated one of the happiest countries today.

Thanks to you I now know that there is a part of China that has amazing people and traditions that aren't ruined by the CCP. Fantastic video!
