Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations

S6-E10 Vietnam Central Highlands

S6-E10 Vietnam Central Highlands



Vietnam’s Central Highlands is a place where “the past hangs in the air like mist”, according to Anthony Bourdain’s erratic narration. It’s also his favourite place on Earth. He certainly has a blast, travelling around shovelling the local delicacies into his mouth and swigging alcohol.

His uncritical eye, omnivorous mouth and irreverent attitude make for a great foodie travelogue — though even he blanches at boiled water bugs. He also squirms when a Buddhist nun — a spiritual version of Morrissey — decries all meat-eating as murder while all his favourite meat dishes flash before his eyes.


The chef returns to Vietnam, his favourite place on Earth, and explores its Central Highlands region, where he samples dishes including beef noodle soup.
