Anthony Bourdain: Broke-Ass At Heart

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Celebrity chefs: they're just like us!

We all still like Anthony Bourdain, right? (I mean, other than the vegans and the Alice Waters-aterians.) Here’s a man who likes tacos and street food and donuts just like us, so he can’t be all bad. Even though he’s definitely filthy rich at this point, we can’t begrudge the guy for finding a way to make money off of all that boozing and eating tacos. He doesn’t even have to eat weird crap like Andrew Zimmerman, that guy is doing it all wrong.

And to prove my point that Tony Bourdain never forgets the broke-ass roots from whence he came, here’s the man himself cooking up 10-second meals, all of which run about a buck-ninety-nine. Drunken, broke-ass staples like Cap’n Crunch are discussed, as well as a hangover cure that’ll “scare the evil right out of ya.” Perfect:

    This is the essence of the Bourdain I love. Always eloquent and honoring of food. Always with a grain of humor in tact, sometimes self-depricating, but never at all snobbish. Thanks for posting this.

    Bourdain is king. I’ve even had a sex dream about him, that’s how much I adore him.
