    BEST Street Food in China - Chinese Street Food - China Street Food. You’ll be mesmerized watching these delicious Street Food baozi being scraped out of the DEEP tandoori oven in Turpan, China. We arrived specifically to try the best street food in China, on our great Silk Road journey to the deep west of China. There is a whole new cuisine and street food selection available here, and you can travel here and enjoy it all! Immediately after you arrive, Xinjiang really makes you feel like you’ve entered a whole new street food world, a new street food universe! Eating the street food here is definitely one of the best Chinese food experiences you can have, and is 100% some of the best street food around the world!
    ► MUSIC I USE (Great For TVcliprs):
    We traveled on the long distance train all the way from Chengdu, in Sichuan province, to Xining, and then onwards to Turpan, and as soon as we arrived in Turpan, we dove deep into the street food scene and tried our hardest to eat all of the western china street food dishes. A lot of the dishes we tried really reminded me of central asian street food. The insanely delicious hand made roast baozi in this street food video was definitely of the best street foods that I’ve tried in China! So far, I’ve tried and sampled street food in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Chengdu (in Sichuan province), and all around china, but after coming here to Turpan in Xinjiang in deep western China, I was blown away at how delicious it was and can say that this is definitely one of the best street foods around the world!
    Everything we tried, and in particular these roast baozi, made by baking them deep in a tandoori oven, was really cheap. The local language is Uighur, but I got by with Mandarin Chinese, although it would have been a little better if I studied a little Uighur language to have some better interaction with the locals. Overall, our experience in Turpan eating delicious street food was amazing! It is definitely one of the best street food cities we've been to in 2017!
    Here are the locations in this street food video:
    1) Kao baozi AKA Samsa AKA roast beef buns (INSANELY DELICIOUS baozi baking) -
    2) Meat feast and Uighur specialties dinner - featuring hand pulled noodles and hand grasped mutton as well as Polo, central asian Pilaf! -
    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 images of slaughtered animals turned my stomach. In 1984 I visited Turpan and Urumqi. I am very glad I found the noodles and bread, and avoided the meat. For those of you who do not know, they also eat dog and monkey in China You will see dog carcasses and dissected monkeys in some markets.

    • Yuanliang Meng
      Yuanliang Meng 23 days ago

      To see monkeys in food market in China is as hard as winning Power Ball now. Dogs can be found in very few places but not in the vast majority of cities. Most Chinese have never tasted any dog meat in their whole life. China is just big with many subcultures

    These are the Uygur people, China is erasing these people and their culture. China is demolishing whole Uygur cities. I doubt this area even exists now considering it's been 2 years. What China is doing is horrific on an industrial scale. It has put an estimated 2 million Uygurs into concentrations camps. Please don't forget the beautiful Uygur people and their rich culture and what China is doing.
