oils bursting out That is… That was delicious After that delicious street food delight We made our way for a walk around the ancient alleyways of Turpan A truly unforgettable experience So we just took a turn after those beautiful 12 baozi and we are what feels like in an old traditional uighur neighbourhood Everything is made from bricks and grass And one thing that has shocked me about this whole city is how ancient it really feels And this is a true travel destination This is totally a different world just walking through this neighbourhood This city, it feels like a completely different universe The culture and the history And you can walk through these old Uighur towns It’s breathtaking Look at these alleyways There is like no tourists here And you’re walking through what feels like this ancient oasis town This is totally a unique part of china There is a mosque behind me There is unique bread We just got a Xinjiang style bagel from across the street There is nang, there is cows and mutton hanging up And everyone is smiling as we walk past This is a totally worthy travel destination Not only for the food But for the people and the adventure We are just walking through this neighborhood right now I’m totally blown away By how amazing the food is And the people And how chill it is here And the nature is awesome You cannot see any of this in other cities After that nice walk through ancient turban We made our way to a famous restaurant to try some local Uighur specialties So we have been walking around Enjoying the outskirts or Turpan Now we are back in the main city And we are going to go to a famous Uighur restaurant to try some of the best meat Let’s go try it out Let’s get some good meat Oh yeah So we are here early right now It is about 6:30 But in Xinjiang that means it is 4:30 Beijing official time is 6:30 but all the locals go by Xinjiang time Which is two hours earlier So that’s why its empty But we are hungry because our stomachs are on Beijing time Oh look at all of this beautiful, beautiful food All of the food just got here And this is really what we came for Right here, this dish This Shouzhua rou Literally translated as hand grasped mutton Covered in onions It looks like it doesn’t have much seasoning But we are going to just go right in and try it out This is really actually… Looks can be deceiving It’s seasoned quite well And the meat is very muscular And juicy as well We also have a big lamb kebab on a stick And then the hand pulled noodles over here I think these are beans Doudou literally means beans And you can see that they are light With big chunks of mutton and hand pulled noodles That’s going to be gorgeous And then over here This is the zhuafan Basically a pilaf Central asian pilaf With nice big chunks of mutton and carrots And I believe these are yellow carrots as well And it’s quite oily They use cotton seed oil I gotta go in for this right now Oh yeah Oh it really tastes like there is a sweet pumpkin in there Very smooth and soft and sweet pumpkin With this ultra tender melt in your mouth lamb meat What we really gotta try is the banmian There is nothing like the texture of delicious hand pulled noodles in a special sauce And this is their home made sauce so we are going to try it out Oh yeah The beans on there Give it a very deep earthy hearty flavor And the mutton is also very

  2. 地图标错了!!你在新疆。地图标的是内蒙。Your map location is wrong, Your location is XinJiang 新疆. The map location is NeiMengGU 内蒙古.

  3. Superb! Like a tandoori Samosa. Maybe a little more spice? Uyghur way of life will vanish as Han Chinese reeducate them!

  4. If you want to try Tandoori Bao's at home, it's easy, get a pizza stone, pretty much the same functionality. Temperature you need to try, I would start low 160°C or so and see how that goes. You need top pre-heat the pizza stone for at least 30 Minutes.

  5. I love all of these street food vids. He is fun to watch. I AM surprised that he was allowed to film the dirt alleys with the children . China is very careful about their public image.

  6. This is the Uighur People
    East Turkestan ( Xinjiang )
    China is taking all the uighurs to detention camps and brainwashing them
    China took over East Turkestan So they renamed it Xinjiang which also means New Territory

  7. Син нима деяпсан билмадим 👍🤔Узбек сомсасига гап йук !!!👍👍👍👍👍

  8. 店裡的工作人員沒有微笑。 被認為是一個大問題,它看起來並不好

  9. Uzbek and Uyghur culture and food. Before uzbeks and uyghurs were one nation turks and one country TURKISTAN. Long live my brothers and sisters uyghurs. greeting from Uzbekistan

  10. Это наши братья уйгуры из Китая. Большой привет из Казахстана.

  11. سبحان الله وجه الصيني المسلم مريح
    ارتحت لشوفتهم واكلهم
    الله يحفظكم
    I am happy with the Muslim restaurant, food is halal and clean and don't eat dogs and mice

  12. Thank you for visiting this area to see food around the world. It was unfortunate that the Chinese government was not interested in the streets and areas where there are Muslims.

  13. 😃😄👍👍👍💖💔👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏💋♨🌷🌹BRAVO CLASS SÜPER LOBİ

  14. I wonder if he went back there how much would be the same, china need to free these people and let them have there culture
