That wasn't the only guilty pleasure he unveiled. The second is a source of scorn from fans, he says. "But my real guilty pleasure — my really disgusting, shameful pleasure — is the mac and cheese at Popeye’s fried chicken."
He apparently feels so guilty that he tries to hide his identity while indulging. "Late at night, I’ve been known to sneak in there with a hoodie on — and I always get nailed," he said. "People are like, 'Dude, I’m going to put this on Instagram.'"
He name-dropped Popeye's, but he might just like mac and cheese from fast food joints. Back in 2015, Bourdain said he is a big fan of KFC's mac.
If it's a pleasure, there's no need to feel guilty. It's not like his secret favorite food is spaghetti with chocolate chips.
