Andrew Zimmern of Bizarre Foods was traipsing through the city last week in search of the weird, the obscure, and the funky. A tablehopper reader writes: “I’ve seen Andrew Zimmern on 16th Street (two nights in a row) with a camera crew in tow. People were yelling, ‘Dude, you eat some weird sh!t.’”
According to this post on Eater, he had “dinner at forageSF, hamachi at the Slanted Door, freshly-caught Bodega Bay abalone and foie at pal Chris Cosentino’s Incanto and more foie via quadruple scoops at Humphry Slocombe—which he’s affectionately nicknamed ‘HumpSlo.’ He also ate 14 courses at Benu, and grew a ‘food woody’ at Lers Ros.”
He did a cameo at the Saturday Off the Grid at the McCoppin Hub, cooking alongside Chris Cosentino, and turning Le Truc into Le Gut Truc for one afternoon. On the menu? A veal tongue slider and chitlin’ taco, while Cosentino offered a hoof and mouth brain-aise cone. (Sounds like good fare for Halloween.) Proceeds went to Arriba Juntos in the Mission.
