With the rise of over-the-top (OTT) services, binge-watching has become mainstream. For a relaxing weekend, all you need is a reliable internet connection, a few good web series to watch, cosy attire, and some snacks to munch on as you watch them. OTTs are a great platform in order to spend time with your loved ones. Couples or families can sit together for hours and watch movies or web series.
Popcorn, Pringles, Cheetos, potato chips, and several more typical Netflix items are always there when watching any Netflix series, from Money Heist to Stranger Things to Games of Thrones to Sacred Games to Little Things. Other than these, there are plenty of snacks that will pair perfectly with your new favourite shows.
How About Some Snacks for That Anime Marathon?
This is a list of the finest foods to eat when binge-watching your favourite anime, whether you’re at home on nonton anime or at a friend’s house enjoying a movie together.
Chips and Dips
Chips and dips are the perfect pairing for hot drinks, especially coffee. They’re crunchy, will keep your mouth busy, and can be made salty or sweet as you see fit.
While watching anime, you probably don’t want to spend too much time preparing your lunch. You’ll want something that can be prepared quickly, served quickly, eaten quickly, and stored easily.
The samosa is the perfect Indian food to eat in large quantities while watching movies or shows online. This northern Indian fare is crisp and flavorful, with a visual and gustatory appeal.
On dull weekends, you can find solace in the spiciness of samosas and the suspense of your favourite web series. It doesn’t matter if you’re anticipating the next episode of “Peaky Blinders” or “Mirzapur,” samosa is always the perfect choice.
For the original and best solution to your hunger problems, reach for some Maggi. In large quantities, Maggi might taste boring. But it’s fun to try new things with Maggi by adding things like cheese, vegetables, eggs, sauces, and so on.
Try some plain old Maggi with some freshly brewed hot tea for a truly memorable meal.
The donut can be your bae if you’re a hopeless romantic who can’t stop watching ‘How I Met Your Mother. Delicious doughnuts are here to stimulate your feel-good hormones. Creamy and sugary donuts can lift your spirits and settle your sugar cravings.
Need something to munch on, but not the kind of fattening snacks that could come with it? The Indian street snack bhel puri is a healthy alternative to more unhealthy options (but it won’t help you reach your fitness goals). If you’re watching your weight and looking for a snack, you now know what to choose.
Refreshing and available in a wide range of flavours, vintage drinks are a great choice on a hot day. Beverages that are already chilled are not only more convenient to consume when binge-watching, but also easier to keep.
Consuming something hot while watching a marathon of anime is a great idea. They have a wide range of flavours and are quite simple to consume. It’s also simple to pack away hot beverages for later consumption during a marathon. Put a timer on your phone if you’re going to drink coffee or tea, and don’t let it sit for too long. Don’t let your beverage cool off before the show is through.
Other than the food items we would like to bring to your knowledge about some Tv shows about food that you can binge-watch. Here’s the list for the same.
Street Food Asia
From the same team that brought you Chefs’ Table comes a documentary that celebrates a few of Asia’s most celebrated street vendors: the humble yet illustrious cooks. In the premiere, we meet Bangkok’s one and only Michelin-starred chef as she wok-fries her unique crab omelette, complete with ski goggles. Additional episodes travel to exciting new locations such as Osaka, Singapore, Yogyakarta, Delhi, and beyond.
Each week, our favourite Good Food columnist takes readers on an adventure with fresh recipes and tales from his travels, but many of these dishes owe their origins to the years he spent filming his Destination Flavour series. His travels brought him from the delicatessens of Japan to the provinces of China, to the revolutionaries of Scandinavian cuisine, and even to the Australian culinary scene. While the series is a few years old at this point, Liaw’s easygoing charm and the fact that he is never arrogant make it enjoyable to view even now.
Michael Pollan’s four-part documentary series, which premiered in 2016, may have flown under the radar, but it’s well worth revisiting. Fire, water, earth, and air are explored by Pollan, a remarkable analytical thinker and philosophical writer who has mastered a wide range of topics, from gardening to micro-dosing on LSD. The first episode, which examines the process of making bread from a variety of scientific, evolutionary, and traditional perspectives, is a fantastic one to show your non-coeliac “gluten-free” acquaintances.
The Final Table
If you’re interested in seeing how the pros do it in the kitchen, tune in to this international cooking competition, which matches the best chefs from across the world against one another in episodes dedicated to different cuisines, such as Mexican, Japanese, and French. High-drama lighting, fast-paced cuts, a bizarre outer space set design, and a hidden (but always clapping) studio audience give the series a distinctly American flavour, despite being hosted by Bon Appetit editor-at-large Andrew Knowlton. Mark Best, Shane Osborn, and Alex Knaupt represent Australia, while two-Michelin-starred Shin Takagi and science-inspired, former Oxford resident chef Charles Michel are among the other players.
We hope you enjoyed our compilation of binge-watching food and TV as you made it to the end. You can have a nice visual and gustatory experience when watching OTT if you have these snacks and beverages on hand. Also, please share your experiences with us as we would like to hear about the various alternatives you explored during your marathon viewing.
