The makers of “Chef’s Table” have a new series headed to Netflix later this month that will focus on the renowned street vendors who sell inexpensive food in modest, family-run restaurants and hawker stalls in Asia.
In the just-released trailer for “Street Food,” vendors are shown preparing a dizzying array of noodles, seafood dishes, roasted meats, soups, and snacks. It’s clear from the trailer that, much like “Chef’s Table,” the new show will cover the life stories of these talented cooks while also highlighting their signature dishes.
Each episode focuses on one destination and three or four local street food stars. For its first season, dubbed “Street Food: Asia,” the series will take viewers to Thailand, India, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, and Vietnam.
One of the vendors included in the series is Jay Fai, the first Bangkok street-side cook to receive a Michelin star.
“Street Food” premieres April 26 on Netflix.
