Interesting and intelligent, have a good niche, now Tony stop selling for credit cards...
20 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mr Bourdain: you do have decent loyal,and educated audience ( even in the U.S. which is not an easy thing these days)

After five years of watching your show, which got increasingly better, I was happily surprised. Yes, I like your readings, and caustic takes on the Jersey Shore. (I'd love to see you review Long Island, but not much left there except maybe for "Peter Luger's" steakhouse).

Your show is off the grid, and great. The Jersey Shore episode, The San Francisco Street Food, the dying, old school bistros of Manhattan. The Cambodian episode and where you speak of the actual history there with your guest is provocative, and real. The Indonesian, and Hong Kong episodes are very interesting. Azores, also, makes the audience want to visit the islands. Even the Jamaica episode, where you trek through the bat caves.

I love that you hate "Applebee's" and the sordid buffet heat-lamp food, passing for a meal culture in America. Please, please do continue to pass the word on. It is something that is so very needed today.

A much needed culinary show in a sea of mediocrity, and fast food America which has no clue. 9/10.
