    Street Food in China - Chinese Street Food - China Street Food. We made our way DEEP into Western China, Xinjiang province, in search of the BEST and most unique street food in China. As soon as you arrive, it feels like you're entering a whole new street food world. This definitely is some of the best street food around the world!
    When we arrived, we wanted to try all of the western china street food specialties. A lot of them really resemble central asian street food. I've tried street food in Hong Kong, Street food in Guangzhou, Street food in Chengdu, Sichuan, and all around China, but as soon as we tried this street food in deep western china, I was amazed at how delicious and UNIQUE it really was!

    Everything was really cheap, ad the locals, who are Uighurs, are really friendly. I can't speak uighur language, so I got by with mandarin, but it would have been better to study a little uighur beforehand. Nevertheless, it was an amazing experience to visit turpan in Xinjiang, China, to taste the delicious and unique street food!
    Here are the street food locations in this video:
    1) Zhuafan AKA Pilaf AKA Polo (Uighur Style Pilaf) - 新疆吐鲁番市老城路博物馆旁巴雅湾营养早餐店
    2) Kao baozi (huge yellow baked lamb stuffed pockets) 新疆吐鲁番市老城路博物馆对面阔希玛克拉烤包子
    3) Lagman Hand Pulled noodles - 新疆吐鲁番市汽车客运站旁大巴扎区域兄弟豆豆面
    4) Nang bread - 新疆吐鲁番市东环路与往沙河子路交界
    5) Baked Lamb - Lamb Heaven! (Jiazi rou) 新疆吐鲁番市东环市13号帕夏阿依姆揪片子汤饭馆

    17:50 This whole scene has got to be the cringiest thing I've seen in a while. I get that it's his "style" or his way of doing things, but the constant ooh-ing and ahh-ing and the need for validation just make it so awkward for the viewers to watch. Less is more in terms of the talking and commentary.
    We know its lamb. No need to repeat it a million times. And definately no need to tell the shopkeep that it is indeed lamb leg that he is selling.

    As a Chinese, I am so sorry for the queue jumping and the ignoring of the rule follower. At a moment, I even felt the urge of reminding the shop keeper of treating the gentleman first. Shame on the queue jumpers. And the shop keeper is not polite ignoring him. Anyway, I felt relieved when he is overwhelmed by the food.

    I am an uyghur from there and living currently in the West. I just wanted to share some information with you all.
    We are turk origin people remaining in that land since very long time. The modern Turkish people in Turkey, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and tatar people and we uyghur turks all of us same turkic tribe and used to live compact long ago. many modern Turkish have conquered and immigrated to the current land of Turkey about over 600 years ago.
    Our language used to be same one language. But now our language is still similar eachother about 30% to 95% depending the distance of Turkic lands and where we live . Our region which is the land in the video called xinjiang in Chinese terminology.
    Xinjiang is a twisted name used by Chinese authoritie which means new land .
    They occupied our country in a full control in the year of 1949.
    The original name of the country is called east turkistan . You can check out on Google or TVclip.
    Since the Chinese invaded our land ,
    They have been oppressing us , killing and torturing millions of people (not exaggeration) till now.
    The Chinese government have been lying and hiding the reality of their cruelty and brutality and have buried the truth under the soil .
    Just since 2017 till now they arrested between 1 to 2 million uyghur turks and every uyghur living abroad outside of the east turkistan including me is unable to contact non of our family members and relatives . 😢😢
    The wrold is keeping in silent and turning blind eye for this tragedy.
    I got a lot to speak but i can't speak or write much about this topic here, on this entire page. However my only hope is in the only creater , the one true god of all , the almighty Allah ( all the glory belongs to him exclusively).
    ''Oh my lord Allah, please save and rescue us from the hand of this oppressive, devil Chinese creatures and destroy such evil nation "

      The conqueror of Mughal Empire is Central Asia people and Uyghur is one of the Central Asia groups people which mean they have the same roots. If you want to say that the conqueror of Mughal empire is Uyghur people , so it's not wrong at all.

    Polo is Persian word . In Iran we call cooked rice Polo. Zereshk is a kind of berry (barberry). Then Zereshkpolo means riced cooked together with barberries .
    But in china they pronounced gweshpolo but the original name is Zereshkpolo.
    It shows how deeply Iranian (persians) we’re connected to Chinese.
    But today its really sad the media shows just propaganda about IRAN.
