Here’s a first look at chef Roy Choi’s new CNN-produced show “Street Food.” You can now watch every episode of the digital series over on CNN.com. You might as well just go home from work right now.
Donning some serious Hawaiian-print swag, Choi introduces his new show as a means of exploring the “flavors, sounds, styles, and people” of L.A.’s streets. Choi’s eclectic cultural standpoint seems perfectly captured in these episodes, in which the chef conducts interviews over meals with some of Los Angeles’ finest characters.
In the video above, Choi chows down on sandwiches at Malibu Farm with Beastie Boy Mike D, who calls Choi “the closest I’ve ever seen a chef be to a DJ.” Don’t worry, the surf and gorgeous people are making us jealous, too.
In the below segment with Estevan Oriol, the “Ansel Adams of LA,” Choi peruses the fine art photographer’s prolific gallery. Oriol photographs everything from Hollywood glamor to gang culture.
In another episode, the chef swaps places with new friend and coworker Jon Favreau as the Chef director barbecues and Choi films.
