8. The Seoul Food Chronicles

The best of South Korea’s capital city, The Seoul Food Chronicles cover everything from royal court cuisine to late-night drinks and snacks consumed exclusively in pop-up tents.  An energetic episode chock full of exciting footage, Marja and Jean-Georges also share their finds for historic temples and palaces, striking fashion, and even take a spin in an amusement park.  Seoul, located just 30 miles from the 38th Parallel that separates North and South Korea, is an innovative city that comes to life on screen.  It’s also home to Doorei, the Vongerichten’s without-a-doubt vote for the best overall restaurant in Korea which inspires homemade savory pajeon pancakes and fork-tender braised short ribs.
