Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations Philippines airs on Monday, February 16 at 10pm EST on the Travel Channel. (In the Philippines, that is on February 17, 10AM)
I can’t wait to watch this show! Just this morning, Ingrid Getzan of the Travel Channel sent me an email on what to expect on this episode, here’s what she told me:
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.
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.
I know I say this every time, but don’t watch hungry!
