You are currently viewing The 8 foodie destinations in Somebody Feed Phil season 7

The popular Netflix series, Somebody Feed Phil, will soon be back! Available starting March 1st, the 7th season, which contains 8 episodes, promises to make your mouth water as it takes you on a culinary journey through 8 different destinations that have just been revealed.

Here are the 8 destinations in Season 7 of Somebody Feed Phil.


Overview of the Somebody Feed Phil series

Somebody Feed Phil is a popular American documentary series featuring the creator of the cult 90s sitcom, Everybody Loves Raymond, Phil Rosenthal. 

Since 2018, the screenwriter has reinvented himself as a hungry globetrotter for his new food-centric travel series. In each episode, Phil visits a different city where he tastes local dishes, immerses himself in the local culture, and connects with people from all over the world. A great way to salivate from the comfort of your sofa.

Sound familiar? It’s no secret: Rosenthal drew inspiration for his series from celebrity chef and traveler Anthony Bourdain. Following the footsteps of his idol is a real challenge, but the foodie has managed to stand out with his infectious optimism that attracts a wide audience.

The documentary series has been nominated for Emmys twice, in 2018 for its original theme music and in 2019 in the category of “Outstanding Unstructured Reality Program”.

Here are the 8 destinations in random order.


Mumbai, India — Somebody Feed Phil season 7 cities

Mumbai is the 2nd-largest city metropolitan area in India and the country’s main financial center. This densely populated metropolis is known for its spicy cuisine, its cinematic heritage — Bollywood, as well as its crowded and diverse neighborhoods, ranging from skyscrapers to traditional markets. It is also an extremely affordable destination!


Among the city’s many culinary specialties are the famous butter chicken, samosas, Bombay Sandwich, and fish curry.

Depending on your gastric tolerance, Mumbai’s street food is particularly renowned (even more than in the rest of India). The most popular choice is vada pav, a vegetarian bite that is typical of the state of Maharashtra!


Kyoto, Japan — Somebody Feed Phil season 7 cities

Kyoto embodies tradition and serenity, with its many temples, shrines, and zen gardens. As the former imperial capital, it has faithfully preserved Japanese customs. It’s a must-see destination in Japan, very different from the eclectic and electric Tokyo. Also, Air Canada has just announced a brand-new non-stop seasonal route from Toronto to Kyoto.


We’re counting on Phil to make us drool with good sushi, ramen soups, tofu, and matcha-flavored desserts.

An interesting thing about gastronomy in Japan is that ramen and other delicious meals can be found at a very low price… in 7-Eleven convenience stores!


Taipei, Taiwan — Somebody Feed Phil season 7 cities

Taipei is the capital of Taiwan. As the economic and cultural heart of the island, the metropolis is a global leader in technology. Taiwan, called officially the Republic of China, is also a modern democracy, which gives it a unique aspect. It has a strong culture, large modern buildings, night markets, temples, and exquisite food.


In Taipei, you should absolutely try the Taiwanese beef noodle soup, san bei ji (chicken in soy sauce), cong you bing (onion pancake), and yuebing (moon cake).

And if you like hot pot, you’ll be happy in Taipei!


Dubai, United Arab Emirates — Somebody Feed Phil season 7 cities

Dubai, the futuristic metropolis of the United Arab Emirates, is renowned for being a luxurious city in the heart of the Middle East. It captivates visitors with its avant-garde infrastructure, opulent lifestyle, gigantic shopping malls, sunny beaches, and nearby desert. For an incredible view of the city, head to the top of the majestic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower.


Here are a few Dubai dishes that could well feature on the menu of the famous TV series: camel burger, harees (a traditional Emirati dish made with meat and cracked wheat), and machboos (spicy rice with meat).

Arabic coffee is famous there, but other foods come from neighboring influences like luqaimats (kind of like doughnut holes), knafehs (pastries), and samboosas (dumplings made with cheese, meat, or vegetables).


Scotland, United Kingdom — Somebody Feed Phil season 7 cities

Who hasn’t heard of the Loch Ness Monster? In addition to its myths and legends, Scotland‘s charm lies in the splendor of its landscapes, its beer, and the melodies of its bagpipers, all dressed in the traditional Scottish kilt. From castles steeped in history to bustling cities like Edinburgh and Glasgow, and its mystical atmosphere, Scotland is a destination like no other.


Haggis is undoubtedly the best-known dish in Scottish cuisine. This typical meal is made from sheep’s offal, pork, and beef, all mixed with onions, spices, and oatmeal.

For dessert, indulge in a cranachan made with raspberry, cream, oatmeal, honey and whisky.


Iceland — Somebody Feed Phil season 7 cities

Iceland, known as the “Land of Ice and Fire”, amazes nature lovers with its varied and breathtaking landscapes. From majestic waterfalls, including the powerful Gullfoss, to towering glaciers, hot springs, and lava fields, not to mention the northern lights dancing in the sky in winter, this country is full of treasures to discover.


Icelandic food is simple but nonetheless delicious. Fun fact, it is the 2nd-highest consumer of seafood per capita in the world.

There you will find plokkfiskur (fish stew), Icelandic lamb, a local hot dog called pylsur, and the must-try dairy product skyr.


Washington, D.C. — Somebody Feed Phil season 7 cities

Located on the border of Maryland and Virginia, the capital of the United States stands out for its major political role, embodied by iconic monuments such as the Capitol, the White House presidential residence, and the Lincoln Memorial. Washington, D.C. is also home to many world-renowned museums, including the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the National Air and Space Museum, and even the International Spy Museum. Several museums in the city are free!


The half-smoke, similar to the hot dog but even spicier and garnished, is a culinary specialty of the city. 

Just drizzle it with Mumbo sauce and you’ll look more like a local. But that sauce that’s similar to a BBQ sauce can be used on everything, like fries, chicken, etc.


Orlando, Florida — Somebody Feed Phil season 7 cities

How can we talk about Orlando without mentioning its iconic theme parks such as Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Studios? Orlando is also the perfect place for a warm getaway, thanks to its very sunny climate and lush natural spaces. Florida’s famous beaches are not far away.


Seafood takes center stage in Florida. Among the many species of fish, oysters, and crabs, the choices are endless. Maybe Phil will also be tempted by alligator meat! 

The city has a significant Latin American community so we can hope for dishes inspired by the exquisite flavors of that region too.

    Orlando is big and growing fast – the 2023 data isn’t out yet but at this point it’s likely more populous than St. Louis and Baltimore and creeping up fast on Denver. Puerto Ricans are the largest Hispanic group but this is a city of recent arrivals with people from all over the US, the Caribbean, East Asia, and South Asia. We don’t know everywhere Phil went while he was in Orlando but all signs point to him avoiding the tourist district and staying in Orlando and Winter Park. It’s known that he spent some time exploring the Filipino and Vietnamese eats in the city’s Little Saigon/Mills 50 neighborhood and in the trailer that was released he’s eating at the Puerto Rican restaurant “Crocante.”
