    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.

    The Silk Road series is my most favorite series in the Food Ranger. Xinjiang's culinary delicacies, especially those of the Uyghurs, look absolutely delicious (看起来很好吃的!). I've never tried them before, but just looking at the dishes and culinary specialities makes my mouth water. I admire Trevor James' willingness and curiosity to explore new places, meet new people, and try new foods! I especially admire him for showing us regions in China that are culturally unique from the societies and lands of the mainstream Han Chinese that we all normally know when we think of China. Trevor shows us a perspective of China that we never knew existed. Though I've known China to have 56 different ethnic groups, and Xinjiang to be the homeland of the Uyghurs, this is still something I don't see everyday! This man is an inspiration and role model for (Chinese) cultural and food enthusiasts! He's the epitome of an adventurous and open-minded person!

    Trevor, do you ever give those locals that have enthusiastically welcomed you a copy of the video, or at least given them instructions how to obtain copies? I hope so because your wonderful experiences with them and your pretty good Mandarin will probably be remembered for lifetimes. You are an inspiration to all of us who value cross-cultural interactions that go far beyond politics or preconceived notions. I love your videos!

    hey food ranger
    this is not Xinjiang or china. it is called east turkestan. so fascist china calls xinjiang. east turkistan is our Uyghurs homeland. we never accept fascist china. never and never.
    china is the cancer spreading to the world!!!

    They have so little but they are happy in it. They seem really welcoming and they are scared or rude to foreigners. In fact , they are very friendly. But I don't know whether they are going to be alive in near future or not.

    Every single sect of Islam is a conquered people. The places where Islam is not in control, are places they lost all their wars to. All Muslims are descendants of knee benders.
