Anthony Bourdain on the best method for  NOV 13 2007

Anthony Bourdain on the best method for finding good food in any city: provoke the nerds.

Take the city you want to go to and just google up some restaurant names that serve the dish you're after. Then got to chowhound or another foodie site, and rather than asking about restaurants, you put up an enthusiastic post talking about how you just had the best whatever you're looking for at one of these restaurants.

At that point, [...] the nerdfury will begin. Posters will show up from nowhere to shower you with disdain, tell you how that place used to be good but has now totally sold out and -- most important to your quest -- will tell you where you would have gone if you were not some sort of mouth breathing water buffalo.

I wouldn't have guessed that there's actually an upside to Internet Jackass Syndrome. (via clusterflock)
