Esteemed celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern is back at it with a new food and travel series, and of course the season premiere features one of the country’s most exciting food cities: Austin.
The premiere of “The Zimmern List,” which airs Tuesday, March 13 at 8 p.m. on the Travel Channel, features back-to-back episodes with visits to Los Angeles and Austin.
Zimmern starts at Franklin Barbecue (of course), then Fresa’s for Tex-Mex. He swings through South Congress, stopping at Guero’s for (more) Tex-Mex and live music. Then he stops at beloved Austin ramen joint Ramen Tatsu-Ya before swinging through the food truck park at 5000 Burnet for a poke bowl from Big Kahuna, chilaquiles from Tita’s and wild boar curry from The B’s Kitchen.
Zimmern caps off his trip to Austin with Stubb’s Bar-B-Q for a uniquely Austin combination of barbecue and live music.
