Anthony Bourdain on Food Porn, YouTube Stars and His Intolerance of Gluten-Free Diets

Just don't get him started on Chick-fil-A

We’re deep in the bowels of New York’s Chinatown, down a flight of stairs in the wood-paneled Cantonese classic Hop Kee. It’s late afternoon, before the dinner rush, and Anthony Bourdain is ensconced in a brown vinyl booth surrounded by platters of salted squid with hot peppers, sauteed string beans, Cantonese-style snails and pan-fried flounder while a handful of waiters and busboys silently look on. All of them are waiting patiently for a selfie with the writer and host of CNN’s Emmy Award-winning series Parts Unknown. Bourdain is more than happy to oblige.
