Traveling for street food in China and Chinese cuisine is always amazing! We traveled DEEP in Yunnan for amazing street food and to make this street food vlog in 2017! This is some of the best street food around the world! Here in Yunnan, on the ancient tea horse road in Shaxi, you can find some incredible street food delicacies.

First off, we started bright and early for some amazing breakfast street food in China. We adventured onto the street to make this street food video and found some of the BEST snacks from the Yi and bai people of Yunnan, China. This truly is some of the most UNIQUE street food in China, starting out right away with BREAKFAST! The local street food recipes were incredible!

We tasted a few amazing dishes, bright and early!

First up, for breakfast, we found a lady selling this incredible milk cheese, kind of like curdled milk, right on the street. You can eat it plain or you can order it fried for breakfast with a lot of sugar. We ended up trying both.

Then, we walked down the street and had a nice and hearty and healthy lunch soup, and rice as well. Super tasty and delicious!

Then we went for a walk and found some street “huajuan” rolls stuffed with fermented tofu, very strong and pungent!

All of this was found during the weekly farmers market on the street in Shaxi every friday! If you come to Yunnan in Southern China, come to Shaxi on a friday to visit one of the most amazing street markets! You have to come check it out!

After that, we went for a lunch and tasted classic bai cuisine, including local Matsutake mushrooms and amazing salted pork, which kind of tasted like pastrami! So delicious!!

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!

    Hi Trevor! It's always pleasing to view your videos on a variety of mouth watering foods in various cultural and geographical settings. What's more pleasing is the enthusiastic narration and the background music you put in them. I personally enjoyed the soundtrack for your Indian and Chinese videos. A big thumbs up for that. 🙂 That said, is there a way one can buy or freely download some of those soundtracks? The one in this video is so peaceful I just want to get a hold of it to listen it again.

    I suggest to link the soundtrack in the description of your new videos for anyone to get a hold of it, freely or by buying it. Some YouTubers do that and I really find it convenient. 🙂

    You should make a pass through my kitchen. I'm a lover of international cuisine and will try ANY recipe at least once. My menu changes with the guest and season.
