We experience the world with five senses, but taste trumps them all.

Join us and Maya Rudolph as we seek out the most delicious ways to eat off the hood of your car in LA, explore the jungle through your stomach in Costa Rica, stay up (and eat nonstop) all night in New York, taste the cultural crossroads of Casablanca, and so much more. Each episode showcases a whole new side of the cities and destinations you think you know, and some you may have never experienced before. Watch below — then scroll to delve even deeper into people, places, and one-of-a-kind foods featured on the show. This is Eater’s Guide to the World.
