It’s no secret that Anthony Bourdain visited Houston this past summer to film an episode of his CNN travel and food show, “Parts Unknown.” For all of us who've been eagerly waiting to watch it, the episode finally aired on CNN October 30.

During his Houston tour, Bourdain visited Plant It Forward Farms, Udipi Café, Keemat Grocers, Himalaya, La Grange, and Burns Original BBQ. “Houston is completely different than I kind of thought and maybe you kind of thought. And the food here, man, you can eat well here every single day without ever eating barbecue or Tex-Mex,” Bourdain says in the trailer for the episode.

“Parts Unknown” is the latest in a long list of TV shows that have put the spotlight on Houston restaurants and chefs. Most recently, we saw Roost chef Kevin Naderi beat Bobby Flay in a July episode of The Food Network’s “Beat Bobby Flay.” We went back to revisit the Houston restaurants and chefs that we’ve seen on TV over the years.

The spunky Food Network host, Guy Fieri, worked his way around town for his show, “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” in 2009. His stops included Lankford Grocery, Kenny and Ziggy's, Niko Niko's, The Original Ninfa's, The Red Lion Pub, Café Pita and T Bone Tom's in Kemah.

Max’s Wine Dive and Klos BBQ Pits were both featured in 2011 episodes of the now-cancelled Food Network show, “Crave,” in which food journalist Troy Johnson went around finding the best versions of the foods he craved. “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” included RDG Grill and Bar Annie (now Cafe Annie), Reef, The Original Ninfa's, Bombay Pizza and the now closed Feast (you can now find its chef Richard Knight at Hunky Dory) in several episodes. Feast also appeared in an episode of “Outrageous Food,” as did Three Brothers Bakery, which introduced host Tom Pizzica to the 11-inch tall pumpecapple piecake a.k.a the turducken of desserts.

While Houston isn’t all meat and barbecue, Pappas Bros Steakhouse earned a spot in the Best Steak episode of Food Network’s “Top 5 Restaurants,” and Killen’s Barbecue was among the top five in the Best BBQ episode. Other Food Network shows that have showcased Houston restaurants include “Meat & Potatoes,” which featured The Little Bitty Burger Barn, Beaver’s and Zelko Bistro (now closed), and “Restaurant Impossible,” in which host Robert Irvine tried to help the now closed Gratifi improve its act.

The Houston Rodeo is in its own category when it comes to food so it’s no surprise that the Cooking Channel’s “Carnival Eats” dedicated an entire episode to the foods of this major Houston event. The city’s best street eats have also been featured in several episodes of Eat St., another Cooking Channel show that focuses on mobile food vendors. While some food trucks that appeared on the show are no longer in operation, Phamily Bites, Waffle Bus, Flip N Patties Truck, Kurbside Eatz, Ladybird, Fusion Taco, Muiishi Makirritos, and Bernie's Burger Bus are still serving good food. The network’s “Unique Eats” also paid a visit to H-Town and showcased El Real, Beaver's, Hubcap Grill, Fluff Bake Bar, Coreanos, and Pondicheri over several episodes.

Andrew Zimmern had a blast during his visit to Houston for “Bizarre Foods America,” his show on the Travel Channel. After all, who gets to tailgate with Underbelly chef Chris Shepherd and go duck hunting with Reef’s Brian Caswell? Zimmern also visited visited Raja Sweets and Crawfish and Noodles. Burgers in Houston pack big flavors as “Burgerland” host George Motz discovered in the 2014 episode of the show dedicated to Houston. Stops included Stanton City Bites, Christian's Tailgate, and Blake's BBQ and Burgers. The Travel Channel’s “Food Paradise” also found soul food and sandwich paradises at Houston restaurants This Is It and Juan Mon.

Have you ever heard of a cannoli cupcake? Give it a try at Drew’s Pastry Place, an Italian bakery that appeared on TLC’s Bakery Boss. It was thanks to host Buddy Valastro’s advice that the now popular sweet treat was born.

With that we’ve reached the sweet end of our round-up of recent Houston food TV appearances. Next time you’re looking for somewhere to eat, consider the restaurants that have made it big on the small screen. Here’s a handy map to help you out.
