Heavenly Bites: Mexico Review 2022 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew
In Mexico, the Michelada is both the sickness and the cure. This unique mixed beer drink has a reputation as both a party-starter and a hangover remedy, boasting a long list of ingredients that change dramatically depending on where you go. There might be lime juice, Clamato, salt, and chili sauces, shrimp or jerky, fruit cubes, candy, and gummies. Some even include vodka! The possibilities are endless, and in the first installment of Heavenly Bites: Mexico, “Micheladas”, our host Memo Villegas excitedly educates us about some of Mexico’s favorite variations on the drink. There’s Susy and Sara, who make “Gomichelas” in Tepito, Mexico City, refreshing drinks often served in “crazy blenders”. They infuse their drinks with candy and gummies, and fruity, unusual flavors, while Dayvasos, in Northern Mexico, puts a more savory spin on their “Dayva” Michelada, piling on jerky, shrimp, clams, and a special sauce. There truly are no rules for the Michelada.
Over the course of Heavenly Bites‘s half-hour first installment, we also meet the people behind the “Michecoco”, a tropical Michelada, the the Chubechada, a colorful Michelada mixed with vodka. Each of these beverages are a symbol for the joy these mixologists and creators hope to bring to their customers, and they’re rewarded for that joy in turn; some of them get so busy they open additional locations, while others become famous in their respective neighborhoods for their delicious offerings. Whether you’re starting the party with a Michelada or enjoying one to recover from the party the day after, there’s some variation on this beloved beverage that will do just the trick.
Heavenly Bites: Mexico is a joyous affair. From the moment the first installment begins with its energized narration and eye-catching visuals, it’s impossible to look away, largely thanks to the passion the show’s creators clearly feel for the story they’re telling. This is an affectionate, exuberant love letter to Mexico’s quirkiest, most creative new dishes, an effort likely to please foodies and casual fans alike. In addition to showcasing the food and beverages, we also get to know the people, which is what makes Heavenly Bites such a memorable delight. It’s interesting to watch a colorful drink get poured, sure, but it’s nothing without knowing the heart and soul that drink was made with, and what it took for these people to be able to bring these creations to the masses.
There’s an option to watch Heavenly Bites: Mexico with English dubbing, but I would advise against it; Memo Villegas’s voice is essential ingredient to the show, filled with an excitement and spirit that get us hyped up for each dish we see and individual we meet. Go with the original narration and English subtitles if needed – it’s so much more fun that way. By combining Villegas’s voice with the eye-catching visuals used to showcase these treats, Heavenly Bites creates something thrilling and memorable, appealing to both our stomachs and our hearts as we get to know the people and the culture that make Mexico so special.
