Chinese Street Food Tour in Rural Xinjiang – the BEST Street food in China! We took a train from Turpan all the way to Kuqa to try the BEST and most unique street food in China! When you arrive, you instantly know you are in a new street food world, and that you can taste some of the best street food around the world in 2017!
I’ve been searching for the best street food in China for a long time, and have to say that when it comes to Chinese street food, some is good, some is bad, but in Xinjiang, most of the stuff we tried was fantastic! The meat and the sloppy dumplings were out of this world! You’ll fall in love watching the delicious street food in this street food video, because we came specifically to try the best street food in China, as we make our way west along the Silk Road to the farthest part of western China. Coming here is a whole new world of Chinese cuisine. Eating Chinese food in Xinjiang is definitely one of the best street food experiences I’ve had!
We made our way to Kuqa from Chengdu. We first took the train to Xining and enjoyed the Hui Chinese muslim Chinese street food and then took the train to Turpan and onwards to Kuqa, our final destination being Kashgar. The dishes we have been eating so far really reminds me of central asian street food. From the super flavor packed hand pulled noodles, to the roast deep tandoori baozi, it’s a great destination for food.
So far I’ve eaten street food in Chengdu, street food in Hong Kong, street food in Guangzhou, Street food in Shanghai, and street food all around Asia, but something as simple as the street food here in Xinjiang (Kuqa) really impressed me!
All the street food we tried, in particular the hand pulled noodles, which tasted like spaghetti, was fantastic! Even the bbq kebabs were amazing as well. The locals here speak Uighur and a little Chinese, so I got by communicating with them in Chinese, but would be better if I picked up some Uighur. Overall, our experience eating in Kuqa, Xinjiang was amazing!
Here are the locations in this street food video:
1) Roast Tandoori Nang Bread –
2) Sunday Market (Featuring Hand pulled noodles, pumpkin baozi, and roast tandoori baozi)-
3) Huge meat nirvana feast –
