Western Sydney actor and filmmaker Arka Das has a passion for eating local. Over eight nights, he invites friends and collaborators from the feature film Here Out West to go out for a meal and uncover the delicious food shaping the myriad of cultures that make up Western Sydney.

Inspired by the eight distinct chapters and writers from feature film Here Out West, each episode ventures into a different culinary culture, placing a spotlight on the buzzing hubs that host their thriving diasporic communities and beyond. From Bangladeshi street food and Chilean backyard barbecues to hand-crafted Lebanese sweets, the series unearths the spots serving up honest, authentic and mouth-watering meals from many corners of the globe.
