    Any folks on TFW just love these two Travel Channel shows?

    They're both awesome in their own right.

    Check out BOTH of them in action in this quick youtube clip.

    Oh man after discovering his shows last year I've become such a Bourdainophile. I just finished Kitchen Confidential and have been hunting down all his interviews on youtube. Google has like a 50 minute one with him that he did for their google authors series.

    Read a piece on Anthony once that had me laughing. Said that he has eaten raw seal eyes, testicles, everything but snail snot, and still considers the worst tasting food on earth is a Chicken McNugget.
    He despises Rachel Ray.
    and yet, when he talks about his "No Reservations" show, he is humbled by it- paid to eat and just comment on it all.

    Bizarre Foods has me at odds. the man eats utter crap- still beating hearts, uses snake arteries as straws, yada, yada, yet he gagged on Fish Roe while here in the South of the U.S.?
    I have eaten that before and never gagged. it isn't something i crave, but it isn't anything like what he described.

    but i still like the shows. both are good when Dirty Jobs is a rerun, LOL.

    When Bourdain eats nasty stuff it's because that what the locas of where every he is eats. The other show is just like "look at me I'm putting nasty stuff in my mouth!"

    Anyone see the episode of No Reservations with Bourdain staying with the Bushmen of Africa? EVERYTHING they fed him grossed him out. They cook their ostrich eggs scrambled in the dirt. They don't clean the dung and stomach contents out of their large kills... so that all the meat tastes like crap and grass.

    That was the first episode of No Reservations I ever saw.

    My GF watches Bourdain, which means sometimes I have to watch it. I only ask that we not watch it while eating our heavily processed, high-fat, preservative-laden American food. Because some of that stuff he eats is naaasty.

    I love Anthony Bourdain. He's one of my idols. The only thing I disagree with him is his stance on wasabi with sushi/sashimi.

    Andrew Zimmern got done in by a durian. A FRICKEN FRUIT. He lost all cred with me on that.

    Don't get Razerwire started, I spent a whole dinner with him ranting and pounding his fist on the table about the dude and the durian. I thought he was going to start throwing chairs around the restaurant like some crazy one man soccer riot. He didn't stop until the waitress threatened to taser him if he didn't settle down. He spent the rest of the time muttering curses and stabbing the food on his plate angrily.

    I wish I was cool enough to hang out with Anthony Bourdain. He just seems,like an awesome guy to have around as a friend. Also, he has a small part in Uwe Boll's upcoming shitflick, "Far Cry," in which he dies. Maybe it's a self inflicted gunshot wound because he realizes that he;s an extra in a Boll "film."

    On his show before No Reservations Bourdain ate the still beating heart of a cobra.

    My whole thing is Bourdain’s show is about where he’s at. He eats crazy stuff because that what the locals eat. Other dude is the kid on the play ground that you could get to eat a bug for a dollar.
