He’s no Anthony Bourdain, but what he lacks in grouchiness and black leather, he makes up for in volume. Adam Richman is the latest Travel Channel personality to pass through San Francisco, which will be his stop on Man Vs. Food tonight. Unlike No Reservations, the Richman show focuses more on sizable city “challenges” than on actual out-of-the-way finds. He goes for the biggest, hottest, most difficult things to eat in each city. To that end, we finally get the televised burrito fix that we noted missing from Bourdain’s tour. Richman visits La Cumbre, which he contends is the birthplace of the Mission Burrito, and accepts the challenge every other Missionite just calls “dinner.” Check out that very clip below and see what you think. The show airs on Travel tonight at 10 p.m.
