    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!

This channel will show you real Chinese food and real local food, not that stuff they serve in the Buzzfeed challenge.

    May I ask, how do you feel about the persecution of the Uighur Muslims of China? They are being taken away and being put in to concentration camps. They are also being forced to denounce there faith.

    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.
