    Halal Street Food in China is some of the best Islamic Chinese Street Food I've tasted, ( like delicious noodles and kebabs) , and this is just the beginning of our Journey n the Chinese Silk road!
    We made our way to Turpan, in China's Xinjiang province, for the beginning of our Silk Road tour, all the way from Chengdu, and found a whole new world awaiting us. You can feast for days on new street food specialties all from the Uighur people and Hui People in China's northwest. In the past month, we flew from Guangzhou, where we filmed amazing Cantonese street food specialties near Hong Kong, all the way to Chengdu. Then, we spent a week exploring and eating delicious Sichuan cuisine and made a video about "Szechuan sauce" in a local farmers market. We then took the train to Xining, a city with a large Hui Chinese population, and enjoyed some delicious Hui Halal Street food. Unfortunately, the street food videos from Xining may not be retreived, we will have to wait and see.
    After Xining, we took the high speed train to Turpan, which is where we currently are enjoying Uighur street food. We are going to continue the silk road journey through the southern Taklamakan desert route all the way to Kashgar! Please stay tuned because there are a lot of delicious street food videos coming your way!

    Why is Islam so special that even food requires a label, and the hijab attire thing? No other religions are like this.
    The halal certification earns money and part of it goes to funds of terrorism. Also the way it slaughters is very cruel. Poor animals.
    Why not just eating and dressing the same way the rest of the world does? Why can't they get along with fellow humans?

    Westerners have destroyed East Asia by colonialism 100 years ago, and now betraying them again by pro-Islamic propaganda.
    Statistics show that Islamic areas are far behind the rest of areas in China, in terms of economy, education, health, gender equality etc.
    The CCP is oppressing ethnic minorities and religions, but no other groups use violence as muslims do. Islam is disaster from the very beginning of its establishment. Chinese people can live very well without ideologies and religions.

      Facan Sweet Sweet Ok, It’s like about a thousand years ago, the Persians and Arabics moved to the east Asia and lived on this land with the Han Chinese. With the next a thousand year went by, they were mixed into one, that is today Hui Chinese.

    Many Westerns have misunderstood for China. They think that Chineses do not believe in religion. China has no freedom of religious belief. In fact, there are many Muslims, Christians, Buddhists and Taoist believers in China, and everyone can live together in harmony. Thank you for sharing this video.
