Food blogs and Pinoy blogs are going Tony Bourdain crazy after his popular show Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations went to the Philippines. The show finally aired and I have to say that as a Filipino American, I felt it was superbly done.

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.
