Sisig could be Anthony Bourdain's new favorite

It seemed that Pinoy cuisine, particularly the "sisig" could be the new favorite of renowned chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain.

"I think sisig is an obvious choice. I think the easiest for New Yorkers to love... the easiest to present in its authentic form for the New Yorkers and Americans in general. We're open to and (are) interested in Filipino cuisine," Bourdain said in a clip of an interview that was aired on "State of the Nation with Jessica Soho" on Friday.

Bourdain has returned to the Philippines as one of the speakers for the World Street Food Congress 2017.

Meanwhile, when asked if he would take an opportunity to dine with President Rodrigo Duterte, he said he doesn't know the Philippine leader that much.

"I'm not familiar enough with the man... so I'll contemplate that but I would like to get a visa to come here again," he said.

On a personal note, when Bourdain was asked what makes him jump out of bed, he replied, "Some thing that makes me happy... love. Those are good reasons to get up in the morning."

This year's World Street Food Congress, with the theme "Re-imagine Possibilities" is held at the Concert Venue of Mall of Asia Arena from May 31 to June 4.

The full interview of with Bourdain will be aired on the program "Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho" on Sunday evening. — Anna Felicia Bajo/BAP, GMA News
