One of the most celebrated travelers is Anthony Bourdain. The star of shows such as No Reservations and Parts Unknown, Bourdain has traveled to over 75 countries and this number increases with every passing episode.
Recently, Bourdain revealed during a Travel+Leisure interview that his favorite destination as a solo traveler is Tokyo, Japan.
“Tokyo is very exciting alone. Every time you need to feed yourself at a restaurant you’re taking the plunge, stepping through the curtains into a room filled with locals, menus in Japanese, feeling awkward and freakish—the tallest guy in the room—having no clue what it is that they’re serving.”
As a chef, Bourdain can appreciate good food better than most, and believes that Japan has some of the best food in the world. He said:
“Ask just about any chef — if you had to be trapped in one country to eat for the rest of your life — they’d all pick Japan.”
Do you agree with Anthony Bourdain?
