The BEST STREET FOOD in China!! SPICY Chinese BLADE SHEARED NOODLES in Sichuan, China!!

  • Published on Sep 27, 2017
    The BEST Street Food in China is definitely blade sheared or hand pulled noodles, they can be SPICY! Eating street food around the world and Chinese Food is a whole world to engulf yourself in. Since we live in Sichuan, China, eating and trying delicious street food in China every day, I decided to make a street food video for you with the BEST Chinese street food (subjective, I know, but they are my favourite).
    We went to a random hole in the wall restaurant in Chengdu, China, and ate a spicy bowl of blade sheared noodles, full of chili oil and Sichuan peppercorn. In the restaurant we found, there was also a ton of delicious street food to eat, including stir fried dishes, wontons, cold vegetable “liang cai” dishes, and red braised beef, red braised intestines, and red braised chicken with taro, along with super tasty douhua silken tofu!
    We’re about to embark on a 1 month journey to the South of Sichuan. Eating and tasting as much delicious street food around China as we can. You can follow along with us in this series as we venture down through Sichuan into Yunnan, tasting as much delicious food as possible!
    Over the last 3 years, we’ve shot a ton of super tasty street food videos. I’ve just finished compiling a map of almost every single place we’ve ever shot at! You can find it here. This way, if you’re traveling to China or you decide to live in china, you can follow along this map and find the best street food locations!

    And here is the location of the street food joint we ate at in this video:

    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.

    Careful, Treveor... love your videos, but all that Chinese food soaked in chili oil will some day catch up with you. The chili oil, MSG and sodium content is astronomical, especially in Sichuan food. I hope your consumption of these kinds of food on these videos is just that.. for the videos, and that you eat more healthy other times. Remember, it's not just about the weight gain... blood pressure , future gut problems.....yeah, yeah, I'm being a "Party Pooper"...

    Your videos are the only thing that could get me 'homesick' from China. Spent 7 years in China and food is one of the things i miss the most and last trip i had before heading back to my home country was in Sichuan. I had the best numbing time with food there! Love your videos... Thanks for sharing your love of Chinese food with us.

    Trevor, can you explain the difference between "numbing" and "spicy" including which spices tend to produce each? I never dialed into that distinction - at the time it was just spicy (I since eat much spicier food!) Thanks!
