Four L.A.-based Hispanic restaurants will be featured in Pepsi’s first-ever streaming series, Talking Sabor, a food-focused collaboration with restaurateur and award-winning celebrity chef Aarón Sánchez. 

Set to debut on Wednesday, April 24, on Hulu, the series celebrates the cultural, community and economic contributions of Hispanic entrepreneurs in the U.S. In two episodes, Sánchez and celebrity guests visit four Hispanic-owned small businesses in L.A. to hear the stories from business owners, many run by multigenerational families, and taste signature dishes.  

To celebrate the debut of Talking Sabor on April 24, diners are invited to visit the restaurants featured in the show to enjoy a specially curated menu with dishes tasted and shared in each episode by the hosts.

The first 30 households to order from the show’s tasting menus at each of the participating restaurants listed below on April 24 will be gifted a complimentary $25 Hulu gift card to watch the show at home:

The show is part of the Mejor con Pepsi brand campaign, which highlights the diversity of Latin cuisine. This year, the brand partnered with PepsiCo Juntos Crecemos (Together We Grow), an enterprise-wide initiative to support restaurants, bodegas and carnicerías. Each restaurant featured on the show is part of the Juntos Crecemos platform, which provides support to help them grow and scale their businesses while contributing to the economic prosperity of local communities.

“I feel honored to be chosen to represent Peru. Every cooking lesson with my mom and grandma has been preparing me for this,” Lucy Haro of Qusqo Bistro and Gallery tells L.A. Weekly. “Hopefully this will open doors for more Peruvians in America. I want the world to get the benefits of Peruvian cuisine, which is so healthy and tasty. The adventurers went to Peru searching for gold for thousands of years and found it in our land. The youth elixirs are found in Peru’s superfoods. I’m a martial artist, and know this food keeps you young and strong.“
