He's really good at eating delicious food and talking about how the food is delicious though. I also like that in one scene he'll eat at a 3 star Michelin restaurant and the next he'll eat some mystery meat from a street vendor, the man does not discriminate.
Do you watch Parts Unknown, or the old shows or both? I love Bourdain. My boyfriend and I had to scold our favorite late night Waffle House waitress because she didn't tell us he was coming to that greasy spoon near us. She waited on him and Sean Brock when he did the Charleston episode. She claims it was a good tip, but otherwise, "He wasn't special".
