    Xi'an is home to some of the best street food in China - with a huge muslim population that eats only halal food, with tons of beef and lamb, noodles, and more, as well as a large Han Chinese population that has it's own distinct Chinese cuisine. Each cuisine has unique recipes and we are showing you how the cooking is done on the street!
    Some of the famous Street Food in Xi'an, China is shown in this street food vlog by myself (Trevor James, The Food Ranger).
    In this Xi'an series, we're bringing you to try some of the best street food in Xi'an.
    In my opinion, Xi'an is a true street food HEAVEN. You can find tons of Islamic Chinese halal food like SPICY lamb kebabs, biang biang noodles, spicy and nutty liangpi jelly noodles, spinach noodles, roujiamo Chinese pita burgers with beef or lamb, and han style roujiamo burgers made with pork as well, along with sweet desserts with dates and ingredients commonly found further west.
    I hope that you enjoy this full street food tour of Xi'an. This is just part 1. You're going to love the food if you visit here! Xi'an is a true Chinese street food lovers heaven! You can eat so much, and I always miss the city after I leave. There is just so much food to try! You have to come here to eat!
    I also really love the variety of Xi'an noodles you can try. In this street food vlog, we sample the famous spinach noodles, but there is so much more, like Xi'an biang biang noodles, and yangroupaomo rice noodles with beef as well.

    I really appreciate your friendliness and respect to the locals. Most chinese people are not super friendly - it's a cultural thing but you can tell they're going out of their comfort zone to accommodate you and are also pleasantly enjoying the chance to show their skills and observe your total adorableness!. Loving your videos!

    The technique he used with the iron stick is similar to an old technique where the guy would jump with the wood stick and flatten the dough many times.

    Man! At six minutes there, it looks like he's basically eating a bowl of gravy! That looks very rich. I really do like jelly noodles and chili oil, I'd want to try that for sure. A big serving! The crepe before that looked pretty crazy with jelly noodles inside, something like a burrito but a LOT more exciting. Probably for about Taco Bell prices, too. Good old Xian! I wish I could retire to some place like this, and just walk around for hours as we see here.
