The American travel and food show “Parts Unknown,” hosted by renowned chef and best-selling author Anthony Bourdain, will put the spotlight on Manila as it premieres on April 24.
The award-winning show will also feature Buenos Aires, Chicago, Georgia, the Greek Islands, Montana, and Senegal this season.
The top-rated Emmy and Peabody award-winning CNN Original Series follows Bourdain and his crew as they explore lesser known places and experience various cultures and cuisines.
The world is taking notice of the Philippines as a diverse gastronomical hub, so it’s no wonder why Bourdain chose Manila.
The famed chef visited the country last December during the Christmas season. He was spotted in a Korean restaurant and a bar in Malate. He was once again spotted enjoying his meryenda in a fastfood chain in Pasay. During his visit, the chef sampled some Filipino staples like adobo, kare-kare, halo-halo, and sisig, which he called a “divine mosaic of pig parts.”
These visits will be featured in the Manila episode. The episode will conclude with the opening of the Balikbayan box.
Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown is produced by Zero Point Zero Production with executive producers Chris Collins, Lydia Tenaglia, Sandra Zweig, and Anthony Bourdain.
