►The Food Ranger Trevor James – Chinese Street Food Sweepstakes at the bottom of description.

Sichuan cuisine is famous around the world, and here in Chengdu is the birthplace. If you travel to Chengdu to try the best Chinese street food and delicious Sichuan cuisine, you will fall in love immediately. The food is spicy, fragrant, and numbing, and the back streets can be explored endlessly for new food!

We are now back in Chengdu, creating street food and restaurant resources for you to help you when you travel here. You can follow along on our guide here:


In my Chengdu Food Guide, I’m posting the best restaurants that you can visit in Chengdu, with all of the best Chinese street food and restaurant locations.

In this video, we’re going to a classic Sichuan food restaurant in Chengdu, Taishizai 太实在,located in the center of Chengdu.

Restaurant name:
太实在 – Taishizai
Restaurant Address:
Address: 平安巷15号(近八棵树)

We ordered some delicious Chinese cuisine. We ordered Mapo Tofu, Sweet and Sour Lotus Root, Red braised pork, seaweed soup, and more! It was all made with the traditional Chinese recipes. The mapo tofu recipe made by boss Zhou was incredible!

I guess this restaurant will close within one year, so hurry up if you want to try this amazing Sichuan Chinese street food!

I also wanted to use this street food video to update you about our current plans. In the future we are going to travel a little slower to make these street food vlogs. I want to create more food and restaurant resources for you, which I will be doing on my website. I hope that these help you find the best food when you travel!

  2. Hey, Trevor! Please consider coming to the Philippines! There are lots of provinces here with different delicacies and specialties and most Filipinos speak English so it’ll be really easy to navigate. Also, if you’d prefer to focus on street food, Metro Manila has a lot to offer on its own. ?

  3. Hi! I am a big fan of Sichuan and Yunnan cuisine but I’ve never been outside of Europe so far. However, me and my gf are going to Beijing later this year! Woho! My question is: what’s the best vegan/vegetarian dishes or must tries in Beijing? Thank you for your enthusiasm and for spreading knowledge about great food!

  4. you're really a specialist of finding "fly (inspect) restaurants" (苍蝇馆子) in Chengdu, you speak Chinese, you know what i mean!

  6. How did u understand such a strong Sze Chuan dialect chinese? LOL i speak chinese a little and i cant understand much when she speaks in dialect

  7. Out of curiosity, we watched your video from 4-5 years ago, and you were fitter and more handsome, what has our Chinese food done to you? 😉 we love your videos a looooooot! And we appreciate your openness towards our food culture ( as a Chinese I won’t be that courageous to try out everything)

  8. Is there anyone else watching this great vlog trying to guess his rating BEFORE it got displayed in numerics just by estimating the way he is doing his "whoaa"s and "mmmhhh"s? With the Sichuan twice cookd pork I hit the bullets eye (don´t want to spoiler it).

  9. because of you two i started to like Sichuan style of food and then get to know more info about the culture and people there. thanks a lot for the inspiration??

  10. I noticed that if you have to boost your appetite and your food isn’t really appetizing then watch Trevor James eat spicy food. It’ll definitely make you feel hungrier. I’ve been doing that the past couple of days chowing down on instant noodles. Haha

  11. Hey I am from Assam… North East India… Here we are also master at pork dishes… But Chinese and Taiwanese pork are like recipes of heaven…

    Yaaa sooo good….
