If anyone's qualified to tell you exactly where you should eat on a Saturday night, it's Anthony Bourdain. His tops picks, however, are going to cost you a little more than the Applebee's two-for-$20 menu. OK, a lot more.

The dude's been everywhere and done everything, and naturally, he can't avoid TMZ. Paparazzi caught him coming out of LAX back in September and asked him to name the best meal he ever had. Bourdain obliged, and rattled off his top-three favorite meals of all time. Get out your notepad Bourdainophiles. Here they are:

1. Paul Bocuse in Lyon, France
2. Jiro in Tokyo, Japan
3. Spaghetti pomodoro in a cracked bowl anywhere

Hey, that last one you can actually afford. Probably.
