Anyone else a fan?

Next week’s episode, the cast is going to doing a challenge in NY Chinatown.  Haha, so many of the chefs are screwed!  It’ll be hilarious.

Some other Asian / cooking related notes:

-David Chang of Momofuku has already made one appearance on the show

-Dale Talde, the Filipino / Asian American chef on the show, is still in it!  He worked at Morimoto in NY.

Watched the Chinatown episode… they had to take over and run a Chinese restaurant.  Hilarity ensued.

I thought it was funny as well. I could definitely see my dad as one of the customers complaining about the fake dim sum, as well as various aunts and uncles helping themselves when the food was slow coming. This group of chefs may be good at what they do, but they sure looked naive about what dim sum was all about.

Great season so far.  I’m definitely rooting for Dale.  The have definitely ramped up the degree if difficulty for this season which definitely makes things more exciting.  Viva Top Chef.

I thought white chicks don’t do it for you?

Anyways… Anthony Bourdain continues to always have the BEST one-liners…

“That dessert was a disaster… it was like they wanted to end the meal by sticking a thumb in your eye.”

“Prison breaks are more efficient and organized than that group...”

“That was perfect stoner food.”

Nice.  she looks like the monster from Conan the Destroyer.  I’m expecting Arnold to jump on her back and rip off her horn.
