Travel Channel host Anthony Bourdain

Big thanks to Pinoylifer Cire B for sending this one in.

The Travel Channel’s hit show Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations is going to the Philippines!  Finally, in its 5th season, restauranteur/chef/culinary bad ass Anthony Bourdain explores the culture and cuisine of our beloved mother country.  I can’t wait to hear his no-holds-barred commentary on the unique foods of the Philippines.  I wonder if he’ll work in an Apocalypse Now reference. 

Here’s the Travel Channel website’s synopsis of the upcoming episode:

Tony visits the Philippines, the “Land of the Lechon.” He stops in Manila, which is a diverse combination of Spanish and Chinese cultures. Then he heads off to Pampanga to sample some of their rare delicacies.

Set your DVRs kids!

    At long last, my favorite gourmand King of Snark lands in the Pearl of The Orient. Bourdain himself has mentioned on an NPR interview how it’s “completely nonsensical” why he hasn’t been there sooner. He knows well enough of the country (his all-time favorite film, APOCALYPSE NOW, was made there) and cuisine (he’s a fairly frequent diner at the Big Apple’s Cendrillon and from what I’ve been told, Elvie’s). I just hope his co-host is up to the daunting task as well.

    HAH! He said he’s a big fan of street food. I wanna see him eat some fishballs dipped in communal sauce, isaw off the sidewalk vendors near the church, and wash it down with taho.

    I dare you, Anthony Bourdain! Meh. But then again, I betcha Andrew Zimmern got to those already. :P

    He came. He saw. We conquered.

    Great show. Kudos to the almighty AB for finally heeding the call; mad props to Augusto for the inspiration and for the three local Pinoy foodies for representing the cuisine — and us — impeccably well.

    You heard the man: Our Lechon is the Manny Pacquiao of pig. Word.

    Is this Pinoy week on cable? Ghost Hunters International did a couple of gigs this past week at Clark AFB and I forget the other location. They could have done a couple of more locations if half the crap Lolo and Lola told me were true.
