CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) – This season of “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown” features cheesesteaks — not from Philly, but from across the Delaware.
World-renowned chef and TV personality Anthony Bourdain travels the globe in pursuit of culinary adventures, and the upcoming episode of his CNN show will feature one of Camden’s oldest and most beloved spots: Donkey’s Place.
“He seemed to like it an awful lot because he got a second one and kept explaining how delicious it was, and I’m glad he enjoyed it,” says owner Robert Lucas.
So what is a “Donkey?”
“It’s a cheesesteak on a round Kaiser roll with onions and cheese,” explains Lucas.
Donkey’s has been is business for more than 70 years.
“Camden’s my home,” Lucas says. “I was born in Camden, lived in Camden all my life so I wanted to stay. It’s a good city, it just has its problems.”
The New Jersey episode of “Parts Unknown” airs tonight on CNN at 9 p.m. and also features Tony & Ruth’s in Camden.
