TV's Bad Boy Chef Comes to Vroman's
Anthony Bourdain, the bad boy of the culinary world, is known for eating anything. He's in town on Sunday at Vroman's in Pasadena reading from his new book, The Nasty Bits. Bourdain, the executive chef of Les Halles in NYC and current host of the Travel's Channel's No Reservations, has eaten stuff straight outta Fear Factor: blowfish, roasted sheep's testicle and the still-beating heart of a cobra.
Tasty, huh? But when he's in town this weekend, maybe he should try something local that will really test his mettle.
How about the Three Dog Night Dog at Pink's? (That's three hot dogs wrapped in a giant tortilla, three slices of bacon, three slices of cheese, chili and onions). And, no, that doesn't come with antacid.
