    Chinese Street Food on the Ancient Silk Road - Muslim Chinese Street Food - Street Food China
    We made our way to Xining, on the Ancient Silk road, to try the best Chinese street food and halal Chinese Muslim food. We began our journey in Chengdu, and took a 24 hour slow train to Xining. We came to try a ton of street food and specialty halal street snacks. Xining is located in the northwest of China, in Qinghai province, which isclose to the far west Xinjiang province, our ultimate destination of Kashgar. Xining is home to the Hui people along with a sizable population of Tibetans, and the food was fantastic! There were a lot of Chinese street food and Islam muslim Chinese cuisine. Just like you, I love street food around the world, and I travel for food. I came here to eat!
    Street food in China is something I'm always looking to find more of! So we took the train to Xining, China and on our first day, only got to try a little bit of Muslim Hui Halal Street food. But definitely some of the Best Street Food in China that I've tried! The Chinese food and halal food is so good in Xining! I've eaten street food in Bejing, street food in Shanghai, street food in Chengdu, and street food in Hong Kong, all of which has been amazing, but I have to say that the chinese street food in Xining has been some of the best!

    When you think of China, you probably don't think of Islam and Halal food, but that's exactly what you'll find in the Northwest, especially as you make your way further west. We made our way for a food trip to the dusty and bustling classic Silk Road city of Xining specifically to try the unique halal food of the Hui people. This is the side of China not many people experience or even travel to, and we came here to have an authentic travel and food tour. We found a ton of food similar to countries further west, with insane amounts of BBQ lamb and beef leaving me and Ting Ting absolutely speechless.
    Here are the addresses/locations for the places that I ate Chinese Hui Muslim Halal Street Food in Xining, China. You can show a taxi driver these addresses and he will bring you there:

    Amazing Hand Pulled Noodles:青海省西宁市城东区东关大街伊家面馆, 中国
    Delicious Liangpi Sour Jelly noodles:青海省西宁市东关清真寺背后三甲集哈拜力甜醅, 中国
    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.
