Guess who WOK-ed by?
Yes, it can now be said, celebrity chef and no-holds-barred culinary traveler Anthony Bourdain was in Manila and I had opportunity of giving him a ‘taste’ of my city. Literally that is.
And the menu I prepared?
Well, that will have to wait till 2009 when No Reservations sees airtime.
In the meantime, here’s a sneak peak from passer-by Christian Anonuevo (never met before). Lucky fellow, he happened to be a the right place at the right time and took this little memento of me and Anthony doing tusok-tusok of one Manila’s most popular hawker fares.
In the spirit of hygienic sensitivity, I told AB no double dipping. He dutifully obliged.
Oh and I think he liked the palamig.
A smiling Christian.
Who would have known, Bourdain in Binondo? And I know of people who had driven all the way from Manila to Pampanga just have a glimpse of Tony!
For Christian, serendipity indeed.
Thank you Christian Anonuevo for sharing these photos and capturing this moment with your cell cam.
