Show Video

this is the Muslim area of urui the soldiers with the rifles and the Bonet on the end just 25 M away from traditional girls dancing on Tik Tok the O was his some local weer food here in the neighborhood inside the apartments of uhi here are you giving that girl number oh there's the horse meet arriving here good afternoon from Uchi China the capital of the sang province in the northwest of the country bordering Kazakhstan and kasakhstan and other countries like Mongolia there's such an influence from all over the Central Asian world now here is home to the weers there's a huge weager population in the sang area and specifically in this city of uruchi population here is around 4 million people it's a very well-developed City and full of traditional weer Heritage but we're going to explore deeply into this city and get to know some of the people living here the foods that they're eating things that they're selling and things that they do in their daily life so join us as we explore deeply into uruchi China one thing that I have noticed here in urui which is different to Beijing or chongu or Chongqing is the lack of bikes there's no public bikes as we uh the Y Pay bike go yeah the yellow bikes and the green bikes you know the ones that we enjoyed in in Beijing there's no bikes for anyone to cycle around on so looks like a very uh like a walking City by the looks of it I'm not sure how easy it is to get around how big the city really is look at this convenience store very uh Kawaii type isn't it very um Japanese esque look at that it's a bright pink convenience store here in the heart of urui you see some of the skyline here we've got these dorms we' got some all Red Roof buildings you know different shapes and not really conforming to to Modern and typical glass facade buildings yeah it's very very different here very uh very Central Asian over there you can see here is Hong Shan or Red Mountain you can just see along the top there there's a 25 M pagod and that is absolutely centuries old really really old they say that it's called Red Mountain because the rocks and all that are supposed to be red but it looks looks pretty brown I'm not sure if over time it's kind of decolored or whatever but uh yeah this is uh this is a scene here in downtown urui you still got these guys headling about on the electric scooters the yis the the uberit of China but um yeah it's got whole keep of Office Buildings and uh technology shops we got the haawi shop there and yeah various different things look these are hailing down a cab in the old school way not using DD or all them things you would use in the in East uh East China yeah look at that just the old school car paling haven't seen that in a while looks like we're entering some sort of uh I don't know little shopping area people just selling various different household goods on the floor hair brushes and Combs and stuff for your sink well Ender in a Subway here you here some of the weer language being spoke yeah look at this just like a market under theath the subway that's interesting yeah got hats and jewelry wow get your socks so you just crossing under the road you know you can uh just come get yourself new pair of socks back into the nice glorious sunny weather muchi but enough of these Grandy alsoo off buildings and malls let's go and see some of the real urui culture and go and meet the wiers in their grand bazaars see the Moses and explore what there really is to see here in this very interesting City in Northwest China to the mosque please sir all right and here we

and see that great mosque over there in more detail well quickly cross over the road here don't want to be caught j walking around here with uh these big uh armed police about like but uh that gives you a little Countdown look 3 2 1 that's it I've committed a crime I'm done for Lads stop jwalk and get off the road now look over here there's some uh public toets over there which are very very common around China it's very convenient um you know there's always a public toilet somewhere which is uh which is quite nice you don't have to sort of worry about sneaking into a shop or having to buy a buy a drink or something like that in a in a cafe just to go to the to the toilet yeah it's uh that's pretty that's one good thing I really do like about China you're M actually a nice friendly police offic are here with go look we can see in here look so this mosque absolutely uh lovely design you know it's not um too uh traditional we should say it's got a few alterations being made to it it's in green uh green color but you can see at the very top there the big uh the big cerlic uh weer transcript written across there you've got the beautiful um DS along the top but uh yeah and also looks like there's some sort of shop there's like a shop there um yeah pretty interesting it looks very closed though I wonder I wonder if it tells you when it's uh when it's open or anything yeah I guess well ideally I wanted to to see a bit more I wanted to see inside you know some some of these mosques that we've been in before they're absolutely wonderful inside really just amazing architecture all sorts of mosaics and paintings and things like that but uh so I was hoping to build to to get inside there nice uh residential neighborhood down here that's interesting isn't it let's see can get maybe some more traditional Apartments wow they come out of nowhere these uh electric bikes don't they silent as well they like just like sneak up in this one's all right just as silent this oh look it's a bit electric and uh and something else as well oh look at this right thead oh this is the r how do you get in Cy I just wanted to see what uh what it's like to Olivia and get a bit closer get a bit closer to the m yeah there is some sort of convenience store here I tell you what we'll let these fellas go first I can they can show me oh look it knows who she is on the camera and all that oh I think it says I'm not allowed I don't know oh the door's closing on us I guess cuz we're not I don't know maybe the hello Hi how are you English oh going this way oh he's letting us in

we've got a locals um referral into the Gated Community here but uh quiet yeah quiet birds are tweeting in the trees but now we're like right beside the mosque we're even closer than we we could be from out on the street so that's interesting isn't it just quiet life isn't it small like everywhere's closed yeah it's all wonder why that is it's all closed guys it's 400 p.m. I'm not sure about that oh look at this wow that looks good doesn't it wow looks like a NAA theim is oh this looks uh very very nice look there's a few nice little bread bits and all that some sort of seed is it a nan nan yeah it looks a bit like Nan let's see if we can get ourselves some uh a piece of Nan and try some uh some local Wier food here in the neighborhood should we get a sesame one yeah one of them um Yaki don't know how to get his attention he came out and then he sort of went straight back in he's looks like he's also selling cakes this man is a a baker a local weer Baker here neighborhood Bakery but uh yeah hopefully he's got a spare minute I can see he's needing some door back there these smell amazing um man Al there we go that work it just one and um who is three wow only three you oh that's amazing wow look at this she's even thrown us in a couple of um looks like door balls I'm sure but uh I'm not sure exactly what they are it's like a weer d ball with just paying 3an guys which is only 30 okay what nice uh look I know that can married couple who own a bakery in the neighborhood that's lovely that it lovely my dream I tell you what I'm a bit packish as well oh it's in here is this a little shop cuzz uh with some bread you want to get uh you want to get yourself a drink as well don't you y y y um oh the can I have a drink um uh uh do you want something oh yeah right there we go scan on the QR code as you do everywhere here what nice nice to meet you friendly Smiley people love this okay I'm trying I think they feel pity for me my terrible weer language okay look they've got like it's like homemade noodles or something yeah yeah that you boil yourself or baked it's like the door ready to make your own sort of pasta or noodles or something I'm glad we came in here we a nice neighborhood oh look there's a little table here what's in there another Bakery must be the man who sells the cake ah so the cakes belong to this person here and then they've got the nice baked Breads and things like that I'm going in for the lemon it's a juice carbonated drink oh there you go nice and refreshing on this lovely warm urushi day oh that's really nice yeah and a cold drink as well that's a rare in China isn't it they're like warm drinks warm water all the rest of it right okay well there's a little seat over here sit beside this nice gentleman in the neighborhood tell what I love coming into the nice uh nice neighborhoods of uh of China in Beijing you know went into the hutong and loved it here Uchi we're in to the neighborhoods in the south of the city as well and uh so far been welcomed and uh I'm enjoying it a lot but uh I'm interested to try some of this traditional bread this is pretty hard by the looks of it see that wow maybe you going to go in for a bite yeah I'm going take a take a chunk it's very light yeah so hard it's like a it looks like a mini crusty roll oh I must say I'm glad we bought drinks to go with this is it a bit Dr dry mhm pretty dry but I get the impression that I don't know is it supposed to be like that maybe I meant to have it with like a like a like a soupy dish yeah like some broth or some soup well guys it also me go she thinks we're American well C I can't even break off there you go piece of the Sesame Nan it's basically like uh like crisps at this point I don't think it is a n if it's this texture but it looks like a n and he was cooking it in a n oven did you see so the um Sesame are really strong very flavorful I love sesame yeah just everything's very well you don't eat n itself do you you dipping it in a lovely Curry or something yeah so I wonder what uh what we should be eating this with like people are probably like what are you eating what are you eating it like that yeah you tell us guys if uh if we should be eating this uh with with some special dish I tell you what though guys when you if you do come to a place like this you know just over here there's a massive brand that uh that eight bar that convenience store there that's all over China absolutely massive but we went into this uh small business here run by them two two ladies there and uh yeah if you can just uh go into the smaller shops if you're just buying a drink or whatever and uh and get it from them cuz um yeah on appreciate it a lot more than the CEO yeah bar convenience store it is so quiet around here like deadly quiet just eating this bread is like causing little RI R of noise well just buildings and buildings and build buildings of these highrise maybe eight or nine stories high apartment blocks look at this little Central Pagoda here you know sitting out on a nice uh warm day like today and just come there's a few uh few tables there to play maang yeah I wonder I wonder if people play maang here that's uh something very popular that we've noticed around China but uh wonder if they do it here looks like it's a kind of like a dead end look at that one up there there's like a seat on there but I don't think there's anywhere you could fit in that you seen that sort of balcony there there's not actually a door it's just a window but they put a little red chair there no idea how you would manage maybe for a child or something maybe maybe I don't know if I trust my child to yeah the bars don't look all that uh all that stable but uh that's interesting isn't it that um all these uh all the doors to these uh apartment buildings they're all just all left over open I guess because uh you know you need to you need to scan your face to get into here but you can see inside the apartments of uh of urui here you know maybe it's not looking as modern there uh some of the other places that we've seen but it's real culture is it it's it's where real people are living there you know you every day people this is where they are this is the this is what we said about in in the hutong of Beijing you know it's not all fancy fancy big glass facades and and you know luxury watch shops and all the rest of it this is just everyday life here this is this is where you know thousands of people have got you know their own life stories their families their you know go to school around here the whole lives just uh look at this so guys as I'm speaking here just completely towered over by this ginormous Corporation um I mean what is that ICBC it's a big big Bank and there's another huge Bank as you can see up there it's always interesting to to uh to see that and I always sort of take a nice take interest into it it's quite uh you know meaningful isn't it when you have interesting drugs Just J a position yeah exactly yeah you get these old Heritage buildings and then you have these giant Skys scrippers that Overlook it in Chongqing it was uh particularly prevalent as well CU Chongqing even know it's the the the Cyber Punk City you know they're still yii nice people aren everyone's smiling everyone's friendly friendly yeah love it yeah it's well nice yeah in in Chongqing you know they have the super modern buildings they also have all the old traditional ones and they kind of just sit at the feet of these massive ginormous skyscrapers but um but yeah let uh have a little Wonder mall and finally make our way to the Grand Bazar of urumi a market that was built in 2003 and uh supposed to uh give a feeling of the old Silk Road ancient bazaars so we'll see you know how does it

well that'll do us all right two big amounts of lamb and then the horse so we've got the famous Shin Jang lamb and then we've got the traditional Silk Road cuz we're in a Silk Road Restaurant it's not just an urami restaurant this is a Silk Road Restaurant which is one of the the ancient trade routes that connected east to west you know many many many centuries ago so this is a real you know historical Cuisine this is food that would have been eaten by nomadic people and Tradesmen All Along The Great Pia Highway that we know today for the Silk Road and uh yeah so we're going to have a real Silk Road experience here okay cuz we just want the pure lamb flavor that uh that this region is known for uh uh chopa or leg I think the leg will be better this one leg see see Neo hongo they

very impressed performance I'll do it for you he says you can't eat all what you've ordered oh he say it's too much don't sh too much oh what should we take away then maybe the leg of lamb was too big telling us that water too much instead of you know charging us for it all and well maybe we should get rid of two of four of the skewers so we can try each skewer yeah okay so just two skewers uh uh R what's he saying what's up oh no he was just saying it's going to be a little expensive oh oh hold on hold on no problem okay it was like 300 y yeah £30 for a nice dinner with with a bottle of wine is uh that's good where where we come from and England you can't even get a bottle of wine for3 in England you can't even go to Five Guys for for the 30 so right fresh off the barbecue it's arrived already look at that wow oh they're warm sticks yeah looks like they come fresh off the barbecue here wow that's what it's all about here look at this look at the color it's a very um light color it's not sort of overly dark or anything like that beautiful warm sticks on these like they're like knives aren't they a let's have a taste of this first time trying the famous sing Jang lamb it oh it just it just smells amazing guys just put it that coose of my nose I'm going to smell this deep lamb flavor I'm have a bite of this oh my goodness me wo it is like it's it's a mixture of like a type of flavor I've never tasted for me life type of lamb taste I've never ever ever experienced before and then also like just a really deep juicy lamb flavor a little bit salt in there you can just taste the crispy CH skin on the outside just look at this guys that was absolutely amazing I need some more of that l per it's too good ehh so nice we should have just got 10 of these I think got God knows how good that lamb leg's going to be this how good the little skewers are it's a 70p of skewer 70p so soft and it just explodes with flavor just such tender salty juicy lamb and you know how big of a flavor lamb is normally you can put that on steroids just absolutely delicious wow oh he's going to put it in a decanter as well for us this is a real deal here guys oh man he is uh doing a real good job so Credit Credit him in uh in this in this restaurant they've hired a real good guy with this fell he's uh being brilliant very patient with us even though you know we don't know what we're saying or what we want and all that and he's been nothing look polite and patient with us so I appreciate that a lot Andy's pouring Pages first appreciate that ladies first he's a man of good value this guy is he let's have a bit swir of that give it a bit of oxygen in there right oh it's got a bit of spice to it very deep red fruits almost like a much darker fruit actually like cherries oh and a complex Tannon and then oh the aftertaste straight after is just again with the fruit normally on some of the fruity wines you get this beautiful fruit on the pallet and then as it goes down it tends to savor up a little bit but that was like double fruit fruity on the nose fruity on the pette and then afterwards it's uh it's abely gone down smoothly not too acidic either I'm not salad as much you know as as like a maybe a a newer cabinet sovon but uh yeah that's uh that's absolutely lovely house is it oh there's the horse meat aring here and there's the leg of lamb I'm going to be brave I'm going to try the horse meat wow you going straight for the horse meat first time eating horse meat it's not very common it's not common for British people to eat uh horse meat oh there we go there's our broccoli to keep healthy and in the background you can hear some weer regon see it there we go tendis and broccoli one of my favorite if not my favorite vegetable in the entire world there there we go have some horse meat you don't like my brain is confused tastes like a combination of pork and fish pork and fish that's interesting I guess I'll it doesn't taste like a Testo lasagna that's for sure guess I'll have a little go as well yeah it's quite dry yeah maybe the S it's got this lovely sauce I know what you mean about the fish but the fish part is very subtle yeah it's definely a little bit more like pork I mean obviously horses are very muscular animals and uh you don't normally sort of uh rate how good your meat is and how muscular the animal is normally how fat the animal is don't you so that's obviously going to make the meat an entirely different uh texture yeah it's not too bad it's not half bad yeah it's it's it just tastes like a sausage to be honest like a like almost like a jerky like a chewy meaty sausage yeah that is what we've came for the horse is something there is a juicy lamb oh getting a bit of uh dried Sichuan pepper on there got a B did you no no sounded crunchy that's a skin yeah it's really good there you go guys there's some crispy skin and on that side you got the fatty lamb going to put that side and the powder lovely chili [Music] powder the chili and the lamb go together so well but to be honest to be honest with you the lamb doesn't need any salt any seasoning just on its own is absolutely f fantastic I mean just wow just look at this fatty piece of lamb just there that's so juicy with a crispy skin on the outside that is absolutely fantastic look at these just giant pieces of Juicy lamb you see the oil just seeping out of it some of the best lamb I've ever eaten in my entire life right I'm going to enjoy the rest of this meal enjoy this little glass of wine soak in Silk Roads promise well we've made quite the dent in that an absolute sing Jang lamb and horse Silk Road Feast that was absolutely tremendous really really really nice beautiful soft delicate lamb interesting horse obviously it's not our favorite meat in the world the horse but it was just nice to try something new and uh yeah how was that how was that for you it was really really nice and it was so good to have the trender St broccoli we were just discussing we've not had it since we left home which was months ago now so it was just nice to have I'd eat this almost every day in England tender s broccoli so that was lovely lamb and broccoli feels a bit healthy but uh I'm sure we over done it with a leg alarm and all them skewers and the horse meat and everything but uh it's really been a really really nice meal we still got uh plenty of our wine left so just going to have a little bit relax enjoy the uh the music here and uh finish this bottle of wine yeah just enjoy life in Udi oh we a friend here we we're just enjoying a glass of
