  • Street Food - Chinese Street Food - Street Food in China
    We travelled to Southern China on a street food tour of some of the best street food around the world, and found an incredible street food celebration in Dali, Yunnan. The locals were cooking some amazing Chinese recipes all on the street in a traditional courtyard.
    In this Chinese street food tour video deep in Yunnan province in Dali, we got to experience one of the most amazing street food celebrations in the world. Locals gather once per year for the chongyangjie, to respect their elders. We found some amazing street food delicacies you’re not going to want to miss!
    We are traveling through southern China on a 6 week street food journey through Sichuan and Yunnan, all to eat and taste the best street food and discover unheard of street food and to chat with friendly local people. This is all part of the ancient tea horse road.
    If you’re traveling to China as a tourist for street food and like to travel all around the world to eat street food, you must visit Yunnan to try local Yunnanese street food specialties. China really is an amazing place for street food, the local Chinese recipes will blow you away!
    Chinese street food and Chinese cuisine is so diverse and amazing that you could travel through China for a whole lifetime and you wouldn’t be able to eat all of the delicious Chinese recipes. So you really just have to arrive here and taste as much street food as you can!
    Chinese cuisine and Chinese street food is so abundant and diverse that you could travel through China for a lifetime and still not eat all of the delicious Chinese recipes. So the best thing you can do is just arrive with an open mind and a strong appetite and you won’t be let down!
    The address of this location was in Dali old town in a narrow back alley, but only happens once per year. The rest of the time, it’s a courtyard and temple.
    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.
    Music I use in my TVclip street food videos (GREAT FOR TVclipRS):

    We found the most amazing feast in a back alley in Dali, Yunnan. I hope you enjoy what we found. There was so many local Yunnanese specialties! We are loving the food in Yunnan, and are going to film another couple episodes before making our way to Kolkata for 3 weeks to eat street food! I can’t wait! I hope you’re doing well, and I would love to hear from you in the comments below. Thanks so much for watching!

    In all his videos he binge say the Chinese words Tai (too), Hen(very) and Ma (expressive word with no actual meaning). For example, Tai Hao le ( too good le), Hen Hao Chi ( very delicious), Hen Hao Ma ( very good Ma) 😹😹

    Trevor..... sometimes your expression just makes you sound so silly and 'sakai'. That's a term we Chinese use when you behave like you've never seen something so normal.... in your case.... every time you see pork.

    • karen lim
      karen lim 18 days ago

      天天天蓝.... unfortunately it's not a mandarin word. That's a mixture of language from hokkien mixed with Malay influence. Sakai means..... never seen something and behave like an overly excited person till it annoyed others.

    Whoever does the filming while you taste and explain the food does a great job. Bravo! You manage to avoid selfies and boring transitions and keep the focus on the dishes and relevant environment. You also do very well at introducing enough of the environment or context so as to lead progressively but not too slowly to the main subject: food. The result is a very enjoyable well balanced reporting style. Thank you!
