    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.

    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.
