The Ugly Delicious of food

If you have Netflix I highly recommend Ugly Delicious.

I watched it over the past week, as opposed to binging, and that probably made it easier, because the visuals and display of gustatory prowess can be a bit much.

Many viewers will roll their eyes at the excessive seriousness and constant attempt to hook food into politics or culture. But that’s what makes it attractive and interesting to many people as television.

I’m probably biased though because a whole episode was devoted to shellfish (shrimp is my favorite food), and much time was given to Asian cuisines which I’m partial to, Chinese and Korean.

  1. Tried this on your recommendation, but didn’t last 10 minutes of the first episode. How that Japanese chef managed to refrain from putting his fist through Chang’s teeth is a wonder to me.
