American chef, author and television personality Anthony Bourdain has built a reputation on trying any food at least once. But, there are some Bourdain says he will never be having again.

Halal product export market still to be tapped

The No Reservations and Parts Unknown host told Bon Appetit that he never eats on the many plane rides he takes. “No one has ever felt better after eating plane food. I think people only eat it because they’re bored. I don’t eat on planes. I like to arrive hungry,” he said.

Even when he’s travelling from New York, where he’s building a massive new food hall to Tokyo or New Zealand or some other far-flung destination, Bourdain refuses to scarf down airplane food. “For a super-long flight, I’d order cheese and s**t load of port. I’d eat some cheese and drink myself stupid,” he added.
