Thanks to a handful of new renderings posted on social media last week, we finally have a sense of what Anthony Bourdain's massive NYC food market might look like when it opens sometime next year. And now, the wandering celebrity chef has shared a new entry on The List App detailing 10 foods and vendors he hopes to bring to the international eatery, aptly named Bourdain Market.
The wish list includes delicious-sounding favorites from his extensive eating adventures, such as octopus and cod ceviche tostada from Mexico and Hainanese Chicken Rice from Singapore. In fact, Bourdain describes the list as, "Dishes from my travels that I want, badly, for my eventual market in NYC. These are the dishes, as prepared by the original vendors, that we need and deserve." It's perhaps the best look, so far, at what to expect among the more than 100 vendors that will eventually appear in the 155,000sqft market. Here's the full list:
- White pepper crab from JB Ah Meng in Singapore
- Octopus and cod ceviche tostada from La Guerrerense in Ensenada, Mexico
- Hainanese Chicken Rice from Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice in Singapore
- Noodle Soup with brisket and shrimp wontons from Mak's Noodle Shop in Hong Kong
- Dim Sum from Tim Ho Wan in Hong Kong
- Bun Thai from The Lunch Lady in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
- Geylang claypot rice from 649 Geylang Claypot Rice in Singapore
- Roast goose and barbecued pork from Joy Hing Roasted Meats in Hong Kong
- Char Kway Teow from Hill Street Fried Kway Teow in Singapore
- Sarawak laksa from Choon Hui Cafe in Kuching, Malaysia
