Netflix is about to launch a new documentary series and it’s all about street food. The new show, which is aptly named “Street Food,” revolves around the meals, the culture, and the people surrounding street food vendors around the world. The series comes from the creators behind Chef’s Table, and it’ll be available to stream by all Netflix subscribers starting April 26.
Street Food will take viewers to popular street food vendor destinations in a number of countries, including Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, India, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Vietnam. A trailer for the show (below) reveals a high production quality and fun, fast-paced style.
Viewers will see interviews with local street vendors who cook and serve the meals enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. This is an episodic series, at least based on the Netflix show page that is already live, but it’s unclear how many episodes Netflix will be dropping per season. Season 1 will go live on April 26.
Though Netflix is best known for its fictional original content, the company has produced a number of documentaries and docuseries, including one of its more recent releases, The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann. The company has also debuted nature shows, a paranormal series, multiple true crime docuseries, and, of course, a number of food-related shows.
Later this month, Netflix fans will also be able to tune into a new SiriusXM radio station called ‘Netflix is a Joke Radio. This satellite radio station will be home to clips and segments from original Netflix comedies, including stand-up specials from popular comedians.
