    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 market near the outskirts of Chengdu, Sichuan, China, and found Chinese street food and the atmosphere to be mind blowing and exciting! It was truly an experience visiting this Chinese street market! So much food and Sichuan ingredients, so many flavours to try! Afterwards, I rode my bike around to many different locations.
    Please like:
    I visited this morning market on a Sunday morning in Chengdu at 8am with an empty stomach and money to blow with the goal of tasting foods and chatting with as many locals as possible. This is a true China experience. It was so busy, with so many people, so many things to buy and look at, tons of vegetables, meat, live chickens, live hens, live roosters, everything you could want really. Fresh handmade noodles, fresh Sichuan cold "liangbancai", and a huge meat market deli area with hanging pork and beef to choose from. All of the locals were friendly and talkative, although a bit surprised to see a foreigner walking through the area!
    If you're visiting China as a tourist, you'll definitely want to take a walk through a busy morning market like this. There are countless street foods to try and people to chat to (If you speak a little mandarin). This market was mind blowing!
    Rather than trying hot pot in Chengdu or hot pot in Chongqing, you could try some way cooler food in Chengdu at local market like this. This should be a top priority 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 to get the feel of it and eat as much as I can!
    The addresses of the locations in the video are:
    The Intestine Noodles:
    The Tianshuimian and Huangliangfen:
    The Chinese Crepe:
    The Random Street Noodles:
    The Sweet Sticky Rice Ball:
    The Guokui:
    The blood stew:

    When he says "that's awesome" in Chinese and they giggle at him and repeat what he says, that means 'lol that's a silly outdated way of saying what you're intending to say' but he never picks up on it. Anyone who speaks a second language and has traveled abroad in that country can attest to this.
    Google translate says "That's great" translates to "Nà hěn bàng"
    "Awesome" translates to "Zhēn bàng"
    "That's awesome" translates to "Bàng jíle"
    What he's saying isn't wrong, but obviously what he's saying *is* outdated or something. Everyone he says it to giggles at him uncomfortably!

    I will not eat intestines, stomach, offal and pig's blood! I certainly wouldn't eat stinky tofu, mutton, frog, reptile, chicken feet, rabbit and duck's head, brains or raw pork. If I came to china I would be guided by you. I love noodles! Helena.

    I just bought some Sichuan Flavour Seasoning - a packet containing lots of different spices seeds and chilli peppers.
    The first ingredient is listed as "hawthorn" - all the others are easily identified as flavourings but I cannot see any information about what it contributes. Any suggestions? Jeff

    Thanks for all the videos. They have been very helpful for our travels to China. Really liked your website: you posted all the restaurants' information (address) and what and how to order (in Chinese and English!). You also made them available in google maps. Nice. This is an indispensable resource.

    I have been following you on my TV where I cannot give a thumbs-up or a comment. So I signed on to comment that you have to be channeling me. I share your enthusiasm and delight when eating in China. I am still enjoying a Yu-shiang eggplant I had in Hanchow in 1988. The eggplant was perfect and the tomatoes, peppers and onions were a treat to the eye as well as the palate. I did not miss Western food at all for the duration of the trip. And, yes, the people were pleasant and very curious. "The show is Aliens and you are the television." Many had never seen a westerner in '88 and were eager to see a real, live da beez-uh and see how really big our noses really were. I just wish I could speak Chinese. I lived in Mexico for about three years so I am enjoying your Mexico vlogs. And the best carne asada tacos in the universe and surrounding territories were, and still may be, at the Mexico 1 tope in Mulege, BCS. I will think of you the next time I am waiting for thr ferry for Mayne Island at Tsawassin. Did my grad work in Canada, Montreal. You've great schools. Cheers, eh.

    This is so much fun! Thank you for this. My husband is in Chengdu this weekend and he visited the panda sanctuary yesterday. Today he mentioned he was going to the famous monastery so I pulled up this video and told him he needed to stop at the noodle shop across the street. Thanks to you he is enjoying a delicious noodle bowl. He reports “this place is bonkers” with many photos. A great recommendation and the first of many, as we are moving to Shenzhen from San Diego next month. We will have an extra bedroom in our flat and will be happy to host you both on a food tour in the next few months! :)
