Here Are Anthony Bourdain’s 10 Dream Dishes for His Food Market

By

Details have been scant about what to expect at Anthony Bourdain's sprawling 155,000-square-foot food market in Chelsea, set to open in a converted pier space in 2017. (Okay, so he's singled out a handful of vendors — Xi'an Famous Foods, a duo of stalls run by April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman, and famed Sydney butcher shop Victor Churchill among them. But it's like a half-dozen out of 100, which still leaves plenty of room for guesswork.) Luckily, the man himself has cleared up things a little by curating a wish list over on the List App of ten dishes he says he wants "badly, for my eventual market in NYC." A couple are from places he's already mentioned are onboard (La Guerrerense owner Sabina Bandera and Singapore's Geylang Claypot), but that obviously won't keep anybody from salivating all over again at mouthwatering reminders of their dishes:

1. Hainanese chicken rice, from Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice in Singapore:

2. Bún Thái, from the Lunch Lady in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam:
