Rick Stein’s Road to Mex­ico 9pm, BBC Two

The Guardian - The Guide - - Television -

Stein keeps on tootling down the Californian coast, now tak­ing in LA and San Diego. In Hol­ly­wood, he tries the lamb’s kid­ney dish Char­lie Chap­lin used to eat daily, and the Korean-Mex­i­can street snacks that form part of the food-truck scene. Closer to the bor­der he meets a sep­tu­a­ge­nar­ian sea-urchin diver and a fish­mon­ger whose story has a sting­ing twist. This area is re­liant on im­mi­gra­tion; Stein, with his knack for be­ing gently right­eous, is un­equiv­o­cally pro. JS
