MANILA, Philippines – TV host and author Anthony Bourdain said that the food and travel show Parts Unknown was coming to the Philippines to film an episode for the upcoming season, according to a report from ABS-CBN.
“We're coming soon. This season, we're coming to the Philippines. We''ll do better than the last time,” he said.
“We're going to Greece. We'll be going back to Japan. We're going to Szechuan province in China and Montana,” he told ABS-CBN.

According to the report, Anthony was asked about his last trip to the Philippines, when he visited Manila and Cebu to shoot for the 5th season of No Reservations.
“Lechon and sisig,” he said. “To all my Filipino fans, we're coming back. Start roasting a pig slowly.”
That time, he visited Pampanga, had a meal with chef Claude Tayag, toured Manila with Ivan Man Dy, and visited the home of a fan in Cebu for a Filipino family meal featuring the Philippines' famous lechon. While in Pampanga, he also tried – and fell in love with – sisig, a sizzling dish usually made of chopped parts of a pig's face, including the ear, plus onions, and liver.
