Next year, Houston’s thriving West African cuisine scene will get a little time in the national spotlight via Eater’s PBS show No Passport Required.
The second season of No Passport Required is set to begin airing on January 20 on PBS, with the Houston episode scheduled for January 27 at 9 p.m. Samuelsson and the No Passport crew filmed the episode in Houston earlier this year, making stops at pop-up Chop N’ Blok and Suya Hut, among other West African eateries. As Eater.com noted, Houston is home to one of the country’s largest populations of West African expats in the country.
Now in its second season, No Passport Required will also feature episodes filmed in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, and Boston, each focusing on distinct immigrant cuisines. The season kicks off in Seattle, where Samuelsson will explore the city’s Filipino food and culture.
