The most awesome food show on earth
23 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm sorry to see this series go away, but I'm eternally grateful to Anthony Bourdain, and the Travel Channel for creating this series. This is one of the (if not the) best cultural food program ever created. It's fun and educational at the same time, and certainly as good of a guide for travel destination as any.

Anthony Bourdain brings humor to the story at the expense of his own pride, but is a gracious host to others who appear on his show. He's a good role model on how to be a good host, and a guest at the same time.

The program also showed that there are some food that're worth traveling to eat. If I'm traveling to those countries, I'd definitely would make plans to experience the gastronomic delight featured on some of the episodes.

There aren't any bad episodes in this series, but some episodes had more significant impact from a personal point of view. Needless to say that this series is highly recommended for would be travelers to the featured destinations, but is also highly recommended just for its pure entertainment values.
