Which Anthony Bourdain spots have you eaten at?
Here's my record:
- Blue Ribbon - NYC (one of his old TV shows)
- Ben's Chili Bowl - Washington, DC (No Reservations)
- Raffles Hotel bar - Singapore (No Reservations) - I think the cocktail ran me a hefty $18
- Sin Huat Eating House - Singapore (No Reservations) - surprised to find the big crab/noodle dish he ate would cost me $30!!
- Fresh oysters - Arcachon Bay, France (A Cook's Tour) - I discovered I actually ENJOY fresh oysters!
- Quimet & Quimet (tapas) - Barcelona, Spain (No Reservations)
- Brasarepa - Envigado, Colombia (No Reservations) - typical Colombian food....but in Pablo Escobar's old barrio
Any other foodie fans out there who've made it a point to eat at the same place? If so, I'm curious to hear where and what it was like for you?
Ironically....I don't even care too much for crab!!
I do find his shows entertaining, though.
I need to see just where he's been, since I haven't seen the entire series.
Note: One place he would have gone to, or one similar, was a Venezuelan roasted meat place. They take whole sides of beef and put them on stakes against a roaring hot fire, turning them when needed.
It was exquisite. The Gran Sabana area is full of cattle farms, and beef is a local specialty there.
I was making a habit of going every Sunday morning at one point.
Say 'ola' to Carlos in the back, who gets name-dropped in Kitchen Confidential.
This is Carlos and the guys working at Brunch.
Yes, I made it a point to check out Les Halles after reading Kitchen Confidential and A Cook's Tour.
I had a great steak and fries, and my brother spent way too much on a bottle of wine. I'd definitely go back for more, even though I know not to expect Tony in the back.
Always wanted to go to Les Halles when I lived in NY but never did.
