Basically, it's food porn. But it's also travel porn: It's hard to imagine rushing off to, say, Salvador, Brazil, right now, although Street Food will have you wishing you could.

While Street Food: Latin America focuses on the featured dishes and dining spots, it's also dedicated to giving plenty of attention to the local culture and personal lives of the chefs.

Each story is truly engaging and educational while also making you salivate for all of the food itself, and wish that you could travel once again.

Full of captivating characters and salivating sequences, Street Food: Latin America's arrival could not have come at a better time.

The globetrotting doc series' trip to Latin America has moments, but there's an assembly-line feeling to its chef interviews and prep montages...

Audience Reviews for Street Food: Latin America: Season 1

  • Sep 07, 2020
    Amazing! Particularly loved the Salvador episode. I think they made a small step up from Street Food Asia as it felt slightly more uplifting

    An excellent six-episode documentary about the street food from six countries in Latin America, which explores the vibrant street food culture of Oaxaca, Mexico; Salvador, Brazil; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Lima, Peru; BOGOTA, COLOMBIA; and La Paz, Bolivia. The delicacies show how influential this food actually is on its native country. Really recommended! It's mouth-watering. Food is definitely one of the best parts of travelling abroad!
