Street food has aways been one of the cornerstones of Asian life. In World Café Asia, renowned chef and restaurateur Bobby Chinn takes to the streets in search of the best food markets, the most stylish hotspots, and unique watering holes. Featuring 13 different destinations, each fast-paced episode introduces viewers to an interesting and delicious discovery - from seafood congee in Hong Kong, to tea-soaked chicken in Taipei.


1. Chennai

Bobby explores how Indian chutneys and pickles enhance every meal, keeps a hungry film crew going with a lentil eggplant curry, and learns how to grill prawns in a Masala marinade.

2. Calcutta

It doesn’t get more classic India than Calcutta. Bobby prepares an Osmani Qurma that’s fit for the Maharaja, Kochuri bread with Alurdom curry, and does his own Fish Paturi.

3. Sichuan

Sichuan is much more than take-out. Bobby explores classic Gong Bao Chicken, Fragrant Eggplant in fish sauce, and fiery Pock-Marked Tofu.

4. Yunnan

Bobby explores the diverse Yunnan province. With Crossing the Bridge Noodles, Sticky Black Pineapple Rice, and even Barbecued Banana Flower, this is Chinese food at its most exotic.

5. Sri Lanka

Despite a tumultuous history, Sri Lankans are happy to share recipes with Bobby. Crab Curry, Eggplant Moju, and hangover-curing Hoppers are just some of the what’s on the menu.
