I don’t know if I would consider myself the biggest Anthony Bourdain fan, but his show “No Reservations” has been one of my favorite shows for a fairly long time.  I actually became his fan while watching him on Food Network in “Kitchen Confidential.”

Okay I watch a lot of TV.  But Anthony Bourdain is one of my favorite shows in the universe.  Saw this clip on his recent visit to Panama and I am always fascinated by what he decides to put on his show.  I obviously had a lot more questions about cocaine after this clip than I ever did in my entire life.  Seriously, this would never happen on Food Network so I am super glad that he’s on the Travel Channel.  Anthony Bourdain – No Reservations is so much more than just a food show.

I heard about this Japanese place in LA called Urasawa.  Toast of the town, cream of the crop, best of the best, Anthony Bourdain worthy, and etc.  I was searching the dub dub dub and came across this blog called Kevineats.com.  Where a guy named Kevin went to Urasawa and took some fantastic pictures and writes really eloquently about his experience.  But what was so shocking about his blog was, how much money he spent at these places.

Please note, the dude and his friends spent $160 on WATER.  I’m pretty sure a monthly service for Poland Springs is about $30 a month. This is on a SINGLE MEAL!  I enjoy a nice meal time to time but it made me wonder how much money I would have to make, to make this kind of meal ($500/person) justifiable.  I couldn’t come up with a figure.  How do I justify living so extravagantly at such extreme level? I wouldn’t be able to.  I know too many people who are financially suffering and literally can not afford to have 3 meals a day….

John and I watched this episode of No Reservation couple of nites ago.  And I swear to you, HE turned to me and said, “we should keep this episode so we could go check all these places out.”  This is why I LOVE this man!

I am trekking out to Chinatown to pick up the OG bahn mi sandwiches at Banh Mi Saigon.  Here’s a video of 2 things that I really have utmost respect for, bahn mi sandwiches and anthony bourdain.

Kunjip – This is one of my staple restaurants in NYC.  Literal translation to Kunjip is “a big house,” but I believe a better translation would mean, “house of an older family member”(roughly).  It is fairly decent priced by NYC standards and IMO, the food is the closest thing you could have to home cooking.  Gina and I try to do lunch/dinner on QTRly basis and we went here for lunch on Friday.  It’s super cozy and really authentic Korean food IMO.  It’s located on Kblock on 32nd street between 5th Ave and Broadway.  It’s right next to Pinkberry.   Btw, Anthony Bourdain‘s been here and approved it, that’s good enough for moi!
