Netflix Has A New Culinary Show Coming Your Way And It’s About Street Food
We're always hungry for more Netflix content, but some of us find ourselves particularly ravenous for something that taps into the world's rich tapestry of food and drink - having recently lapped up the likes of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat and Ugly Delicious, not to mention several seasons of Chef's Table.
Well, now we've got a new culinary series to sink our teeth into, and this time it's all about street food.
Street Food comes from the creators of glossy Netflix original series Chef's Table, which highlights the work of world-renowned chefs - with all the production value of a Hollywood blockbuster, no less, so hopefully we can expect our new fill to follow suit.
"Embark on a global cultural journey into street food and discover the stories of the people who create the flavourful dishes," the programme description on Netflix urges us.
Oh, we will, Netflix. We will.
Focusing on the casual dining that makes our streets - and bellies - sing, across nine episodes Street Food will celebrate the local heroes of various countries across the globe, with an instalment each for Thailand, Japan, India, Indonesia, Taiwan, South Korea, Vietnam, Singapore and The Philippines.
"If someone has to taste real food, authentic food, it has to be street food," we're told in the trailer, which has been getting appetites fired up already.
Yup, from the trailer alone - where we see some well-known faces including Jay Fai, the first Bangkok street-side restaurant chef to receive a Michelin star - it seems people are already believing the hype.
Commenting on Netflix's YouTube channel, one person wrote: "Pure goosebumps while watching this trailer. Direction, sound editing, screenplay and editing are on point."
Someone else said: "Another series about food to get me addicted and even more being the same director of Chef's Table."
A third wrote: "Very excited to watch, especially Philippines episode."
Others commented to say they were surprised that some other countries didn't feature on the show, including Malaysia, which is celebrated for its thriving, time-honoured street food scene.
Mind you, to play devil's advocate, this could mean Netflix is just holding some of the best content back for a potential season two. Here's hoping...
Watch Street Food on Netflix from Friday 26 April.
