    And subscribe to my channel here:
    Street Food in China and Street Food around the world is worth traveling for! You won’t believe the street food you can try in western China, it is unbelievably delicious! The BEST street food for sure! We made our way deep past Kashgar to the animal market every Sunday to try out the local uighur street food specialties, and had an amazing travel experience eating as much as we could! Everything from Pilaf, Hand Pulled Noodles, Kebabs, and so much more!
    This is definitely one of the most unique places I’ve been for a street food tour before. The people are so friendly too!
    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.
    Thanks for watching, and please feel free to leave a comment, suggestion, or critique in the comments below!
    Please make sure to subscribe, it's the best way to keep my videos in your feed, and give me a thumbs up too if you liked this food video, thanks, I appreciate it! You could also share the video too if you liked it, that would be awesome.

    الغربيين جاؤا بلادنا. بهذة الطريقة وحفظوا كل أساليب الطبخ والفن والبناء والعلوم العامة. ورجعوا بعد عدة سنين ليستعمروننا. ويمصوا خيرات بلادنا. فهم في ظاهر الزيارة أناس تبدوا عليهم الطيبة وهم بالحقيقة حاسدون. واذا لاحظتم معي كيف كان هذا الشاب يتكلم ولكنة يعكس اُسلوب الحياة عند الكم الأكبر. بثقالة الدم وزناخة الخنزير. (ثقيل دم ) ولكنة. أدى زيارة ناجحة وعكس صورة الحياة عند أولئك الناس. يا ريت نتعلم من أساليبهم في مصلحة بلادنا ورفعتها.
