That’s right, I have a spanking new food and travel show called Hungerlust on Culture Trip! In this new original video series, my show will take viewers around the world by exploring the various cultures that call New York City home. Each episode will focus on one ethnic restaurant in the city and explore that country through the lens of food and the people who make it.
Hungerlust is hosted on Culture Trip, where I am Travel Editor, which means the show will reach a mind boggling 6 million viewers worldwide! (Note to self: MUST avoid all breakouts). The first episode highlights one of my favorite restaurants in the city, District Saigon, which is run by a father and son duo who honestly whip up the most incredible, authentic Vietnamese pho.
Beyond the food, the dishes at District Saigon transport eaters to another country that is much revered despite a history pockmarked by war. Travelers and New Yorkers alike can take solace in knowing that for the bargain price of a $2.75 MTA subway pass, they can travel to countries like Vietnam through the food and family-run eateries found across this city. I won’t give too much away, so make sure to watch the entire episode.
I hope you enjoy my new series, Hungerlust, and stay tuned for future episodes! Let me know what you think in the comments below! If you’re based in NYC and have a favorite family run restaurant you think would make a for a good episode, let me know!!
