A Chinese food documentary you should not miss!

The combination of food and story naturally has a kind of beautiful energy.

The 7-minute episode of “Streetside Feast” is short, but it is refreshing and satisfying after watching it. Documentaries are usually not popular but don’t count in food documentaries.

Counting from the capture of a large number of foodies in China on the Bite of the Tongue in 2012, food is definitely the most popular documentary genre in the past decade. With more shots, the audience’s tastes become more and more disconcerting. In the past two years, it has been too difficult to find a fresh and delicious food documentary. It often happens that the meal is finished, but the meal program has not been found yet.

Until one day in November, when I was about to turn over the list of films on various platforms, I accidentally found a “Streetside Feast” from the Youku documentary hit list. You can watch several episodes in one meal, and the cost of trial and error is extremely low. Unexpectedly, when I clicked it and took a look, I directly “stuck”.

In 7 minutes, I followed the director Agan to the small town, looking for authentic, delicious, and humane delicacies in the streets and alleys. The boss is good enough, and the director is good enough to make a meal, and the impression is really cool. This is cool, one is because of the duration, 7 minutes, and the rhythm is so fast that I can’t wait for a few consecutive episodes. Second, because of such a short period of time, there are a lot of dry goods for documentaries. From food, cooks to cities, “Streetside Feast” is as comprehensive as possible.

It may be because of its extreme “shortness” and “coolness” that “Streetside Feast” has received a lot of praise. The first stop of “Streetside Feast” came to Yueyang, an ancient city with a history of more than 2500 years.

Just when I was looking forward to the director upstairs in Yueyang, pouring a glass of Quyuan wine and tasting the sweetness of history. Unexpectedly, the camera aimed directly at the crayfish that hadn’t been hot for a few years.
