Anthony Bourdain, the celebrity traveler and bon vivant, came to Cajun country last February to film an episode of his CNN series “Parts Unknown.” Where did the former chef eat? Popeyes. Three times.

Bourdain, however, didn’t head to your average Popeyes, reports People magazine. He went to the last remaining Popeyes with a buffet, in Lafayette.

“To me, Popeyes is exotica,” Bourdain told People. “I was eating noodles and roast goose and Chinese food for the past 10 days. So to be back and eat some Americana food, well, I will weep with gratitude at macaroni and cheese.”

Bourdain’s order, according to People, was spicy fried chicken, mac and cheese, biscuits and gravy and a Dr. Pepper.

The Louisiana shot episode of “Parts Unknown” will air June 17.
