No Reservations Food Porn Episode Featuring Momofuku [video]

When we heard that No Reservations was doing a food porn episode, and we were like, eh, it's probably just a compilation clip show episode. BUT NO, were we so very wrong. Featuring segments with Jose Andres, Eric Ripert, Terrance Brennan, John Down (of Christopher Norman Chocolates), Martin Picard, and David Chang, this episode had tons and tons of excessive, over the top food — or, put simply, food porn, but Bourdain-style. The whole show, brilliantly wrapped around the music and design of 70s porno films, was phenomenal to watch.

We're not out to be Momofuku fanboys, but wow, Anthony Bourdain sat down with David Chang at Ssam Bar, and they consumed nearly the entirety of the menu, and then some. In Bourdain's words:

When you have the opportunity to sit down at one of the hardest to get reservation restaurants in the city, with its brilliant, mercurial and highly-sought after chef to walk you through a full-on assault of the whole damn menu of delightfully pantagruelian, wildly creative combinations, you do it baby. You train for that motherf*cker. Because if you're lucky enough to get a crack at it, you go all the way, to the other side, consequences be damned.
