Restaurants at the End of the World is a brand-new reality series that debuted on NatGeo on March 21. The series will have episodes released the following day on Hulu/Disney+. Below, we share our thoughts on the show and let you know if it is worth checking out.

Restaurants at the End of the World follows Chef Kristen Kish as she searches for secret ingredients with the world’s most remote restaurants in Panama, Norway, Main, and Brazil. The show is airing live weekly on Wednesday on National Geographic, and all episodes are available to stream on Disney+ and Hulu now.

When I started watching Restaurants at the End of the World,  I didn’t expect them to take the last part of that name, “End of the World,” so literal. It’s a fascinating show because Chef Kish joins the other chefs, farmers, and kitchen crew to gather specific items for the restaurant menu that night. In some instances, they would have to alter the menu if they couldn’t get what they needed.

Restaurants at the End of the World is a can’t-miss cooking show

A reality show is only as good as the person hosting the show. We follow Kristen Kish throughout this journey, and her daring nature allows her to try things that most people would be terrified of doing. Because of that mix and her personality, we got an incredible host that lite up the screen every single episode. I was even more invested in what was unfolding based on Kish’s investment in getting the job done.

In a world of cooking reality shows where most of them seem the same or have the same ideas, Restaurants at the End of the World provides us with a breath of fresh air. It’s visually captivating with stories where you learn so much, and you get the joy of watching them cook some of the most unique foods. It was truly fascinating.

Overall, Restaurants at the End of the World is a can’t-miss cooking show that I hope we get more out of in the future. The fresh concept and fantastic host make for a wonderful ride. I loved it, and I believe you will as well.

Restaurants at the End of the World airs weekly on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on National Geographic.
