My 4 hours with Anthony Bourdain around ‘gritty’ Manila—with ‘No Reservations’

  It has been 10 years now, yet during our culinary walks around Binondo, we still get the occasional question, "How was he?"

We were at a private dinner in Pasay City, where I was fortunate enough to land a place at the table. While most of my dinner companions, a mix of foodie nerds and fan boys bordering on the obnoxious, were engrossed in the conver...Keep on reading: ‘‘Sisig’ is everything I love about food’—dining with Anthony Bourdain in Manila.....»»
