Monday on No Reservations - Philippines

I just watched the preview of Monday's No Reservations and I am starving! Tony will be visiting the Philippines. One of Tony's host will be Augusto, a runner up from the Fan-atic special, which aired last season. Although Augusto wasn't picked, he made an impression on Tony, and in turn, he is treated to a reunion with his family and 'the best pig…ever' at a spectacularly large cookout. (Did someone say pig? How do I get invited to that party?)

Tony also delves deep into what exactly it means to be Filipino by exploring their history and the many prominent cultures of the islands. He travels to Manila, Pampanga, and Cebu, visiting a dampa and dining on adobo shrimp, sisig, crab (I'm told to keep a look out for the stuffed crab), goat heads soup, ox tail and of course, lechon. (Lechon is one of my favorites!)

Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations Philippines airs on Monday, February 16 at 10pm EST on the Travel Channel. You can also read Tony's post about the episode on his blog on Monday.

Have a wonderful weekend. Now go and eat well.
