What happens when a show about the late-night snacking predilections of our favorite chefs takes to the streets of Los Angeles in a 15-passenger van filled to capacity with some of the city’s finest young stars and the two chefs behind one of its best restaurants? The Hollywood Edition of Munchies happens.
What also happens is a stomach-clobbering marriage of usually not-to-be-married foods: well-marbled Korean bbq, vinegar-sopped grilled chicken and fries, tacos de cabeza, tacos al pastor, some ginger ale, a plate of donuts with caramel sauce all over it. In all, one of the finer displays of over-eating we’ve ever witnessed.
Welcome, then, to the Hollywood Edition of Munchies, featuring, among others: Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo of Animal restaurant, Aziz Ansari, Michael Rapaport, Ethan Suplee, Giovanni Reda of www.theberrics.com, Jeff Miller of www.thrillist.com, and Zach McGowan of many fine things related to Hollywood.
