Anthony Bourdain is Coming to Dallas. Where Should He Eat?

Anthony-Bourdain_opt.jpg
Here's a day to throw on the calendar: October 27, when chef-turned-author-turned-TV-star Anthony Bourdain will sharpen that other knife in his block, speechifying, at the Majestic.

Tickets go on sale Friday, so if you're keen on hearing Bourdain filet half the talent on the Food Network and try to explain Dallas cuisine, bookmark ticketmaster.com or plug 800-745-3000 into your phone.

Or just stay tuned to City of Ate, where we'll have some tickets to give away as the event draws closer, and where we'll certainly be stalking Bourdain that day as he feasts wherever he feasts. When I was living in Denver, Bourdain came through and found his way. predictably but wisely, to a gourmet hot-dog cart called Biker Jim's. He was not disappointed.

Any suggestions for his day in Dallas?

the best hole in a wall indian place I know of is Siver Spoon. They've been around for 21 years, and are definatly a part of Dallas indian food culture. They have the best korma and biriyani in Dallas. I even had them cater my wedding last year.

King's Noodle in Richarson. He should feel right at home there.

 I think the whole indo-arab strip in Richardson is a good idea. He could go to Silver Spoon, Indo Pak, Afra Pastries, Sultan, and May's Ice Cream where they have real tiwanese like stinky tofu.

I've sent so called 'foodie' friends there, but they were scared off by the shady dive, dirty grocery store, bollywood movie rental, imported five and dime feel with the dirty mop bucket smell. Well, that, or the bad decor...

Either way, not for the faint of heart, but still the best I've found!

I absolutely love Anthony Bourdain!  I watch all every one of his episodes.  I have to hand it to him, the episode recently aired in Kuridstan was amazing.  I did not think I would be interested in this one but he made it so interesting!  I think it was one of his best.  GOOD JOB ANTHONY!!!He should try out Randy's Steakhouse in Frisco, TX (North of Dallas).  Amazing food in a quaint setting.  Randy, the chef is often there.  The location is a historic home made into a restaurant.  They even have a piano bar.  I don't think Anthony would be dissapointed.

The Boiling Crab!!! Hole in the wall amazingness! Additionally, Taqueria El Paisano on Lombardy is on of the best taquerias in Dallas. Lastly, Sahn in Carrollton serves some incredible food with a little more... He'll just have to visit the venue to see what I'm referring to. An awesome concept restaurant...

Anthony Bourdain Is From New York, If he Wants Anything To Eat It Should Be Something Dallas Is Known For. But What Is That? Who Is Known For Their Large Smoked Turkey Legs?

I think Tahini has had the best suggestions so far.  You've got to A) go for definitive Dallas B) remember this is Bourdain.  Unfortunately those two categories aren't a perfect blend.  Dallas is definitely a great burger, street taco, and sushi (thanks to Teiichi Sakurai) city.  If he makes it over to Fort Worth he obviously has to hang out with Tim Love.  At night I think he should do a quick swing downtown grabbing a burger at The Comissary, sushi & soba at Tei An, then walk down to Samar for the regional tapas.

Anthony Bourdain should eat at the Afghan Grill.

Cowboy Chow would be a great place for Tony to try in Deep Ellum.  They have homemade menu items such as homemace chips with feta, mashed potato parfait with Dr. Pepper marinated pulled pork, bean and other delicious layers.

If it's anything like his trip to Houston, he won't eat anywhere. He'll go somewhere to buy cowboy boots instead. Yeah, we were not impressed.

He should go to Goghee To Go and eat their spicy pork tacos. My new fave spot.

It doesn’t seem like anyone here has watched his show No Reservations. He’s not going to be interested in 99% of the joints folks are suggesting. He’s not a foodie. He’s an OG chowhound!

Finally got to try Lockhart BBQ in Oak Cliff  and it was the WORST BBQ I have ever eaten.  The ribs and sliced beef had so much salt on it, my tongue was raw and that is not an exaggeration. Yes, it was from the BBQ.   30 bucks for a sorry ass meal for two including  1 small container of deviled eggs, BBQ beans 1 beer and tea was not worth it in my books. Anyone recommending this as a stop must not have eaten there.  I sure won't be going back there and I know they won't miss my business.  I'll stick with North Main BBQ in Euless.

For some of the places people have listed ... Italian? You do know he's done multiple episodes of his TV show in Italy itself, right? Mexican? Vietnamese/Thai? Ditto.

I'd say the key is something that is somehow unique to Dallas. Then again, he's done that "U.S. Southwest" episode so I dunno ...
