Watch out, Guy Fieri because Netflix is rollin’ out with a new Chef’s Table spinoff that will spotlight the more humble side of cuisine. Chef’s Table producer and director David McGinn announced the new series, appropriately titled Street Food, on Twitter, where he also shared a few juicy scraps from the press release:


Based on that “delicious destinations” description, it looks like Andrew Zimmern better watch his neck, too. The first season of Street Food is comprised of nine episodes, each of which is dedicated to a different country in Asia, highlighting the various regional foods one can casually acquire from vendors on the street–and perhaps a few street meats that would be particularly tasty should you stumble upon them at, say, three in the morning after a night of heavy drinking. The series will presumably employ the same cinematic style that’s made David Gelb’s Chef’s Table such a compelling watch.

Here’s the official synopsis, courtesy of Netflix:

From the creators of Chef’s Table, Street Food takes viewers to some of the world’s most vibrant cities to explore the rich culture of street food all over the globe. Season one explores nine countries across Asia, from the hawker stalls of Singapore to the food carts of India. Each episode highlights the stories of perseverance and culture that bring life to each country’s cuisine
