Anthony Bourdain - No Reservations


Being a foodie, I am a lover of the show No Reservations. Have you seen it? Anthony Bourdain the chef travels all around the world, drinking lots of alcohol and sampling the best food each country has to offer. I love him because he drinks, he swears, and he loves to EAT.


Be still my beating heart.


The Travel Channel has asked The Housewife to help get the word out about the show. I've been begging my contacts to bring Tony to Las Vegas....so I can pick his brain, and his stomach. And maybe say shit with him with a few times....


Here's info on this week's show. Enjoy, foodies!


In the next episode of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, we get to see a sensitive side of Tony. He recognizes his large Filipino audience and that the Philippines is a country and food culture that he really wants 'to do right by.'


You may recognize one of his hosts while there, Augusto, a runner up from the Fan-atic special, which aired last season. Although Augusto wasn't picked, he made an impression on Tony, and in turn, he is treated to a reunion with his family and 'the best pig…ever' at a spectacularly large cookout. (aww, how sweet!)


He also delves deep into what exactly it means to be Filipino by exploring their history and the many prominent cultures of the islands. He travels to Manila, Pampanga, and Cebu, visiting a dampa and dining on adobo shrimp, sisig, crab (keep a look out for the stuffed crab – I almost booked a ticket immediately!), goat heads soup, ox tail and of course, lechon.

Don't watch hungry!


Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations Philippines airs on Monday, February 16 at 10pm EST on the Travel Channel.

Tony will write about the episode on his blog: http://anthony-bourdain-blog.travelchannel.com/
