Mexico: One Plate At A Time Episodes

Super-Hero Sandwich

Rick and his daughter, Lanie, check out Mexico's real-life super-hero subculture. It's the surreal, splashy world of Lucha Libre -- the beloved masked wrestling phenomenon that captures the Mexican imagination and spills over into every part of the culture, from politics to food.
We join Rick on a hunt for the perfect snacks to eat while watching Lucha Libre with friends, as he visits street stalls outside a Mexico City arena that sell everything from tacos and snacks to colorful wrestling masks and capes -- and along the way, we discover the history of this uniquely Mexican blend of acrobatics, myth, mystery and morality play.
