    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
    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.

    You can see where the Italians were influenced by dishes of tomatoes,noodles, meat sauces etc, via the Silk Road and East Asia. Let me be clear, Italians did not steal the concept of spaghetti. More like introduced to it from the Arabs who traveled thru Asia minor.

    the human body is simply not fair
    you see people from western China eat food soaked in oil and animal fat but they still appear thin af. Trevor will know this well since he lives in Chengdu where the food is drowned in oil but the people are like walking sticks.
    Me a coastal guy who had to excercise and calorie count...etc moved to chengdu a while ago and i just ate "normal food" like everybody else, and in 2 months I gained 15 kg and looked like a balloon. (in fact the first month I lost a couple of kgs cuz my stomach couldn't handle the oily and spicy food, but once my body got used to it I just soaked in everything like a sponge)
    The people are like "just excercise more! don't eat snacks and junk food!" Darn you I only eat normal meals, vegetable heavy like the lot of you and I practice insanity excercise and still I became absolutely bloated.

    • 王垚
      王垚 Month ago +3

      I think it's cold water, majorly to cool it down a little bit, otherwise there is no way to grab freshly out of oven lamb with his bare hand.

    • nashkilla1
      nashkilla1 Month ago +8

      Its holy water. To bless the lamb when you are digesting it .

      I was wondering about that too, maybe to reduce the oils on the lamb since it just came out of that stone grill/oven thing.
