Thats evil! Anthony Bourdain said with a grin as he bit into Eamonns newest addition to the fry menu, The Chip Butty, golden fried chips stacked between a bun smothered with Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter. Yes! A french-fry sandwich, but Irish style.

Bourdain, a chef, author and media star reveled in the glory of Old Towns neighborhood eatery and fry house Eamonns A Dublin Chipper, while filming a segment this past Saturday night, July 19, 2008. Eamonns inclusion is set to air on a future episode of The Travel Channels hit show No Reservations: Washington DC.
Irish born owner ChefCathal Armstrong and Bourdain shared Dublin tales, pints of Guinness and Eamonns signature fish; sweet, juicy, flaky white Cod. A man of tradition, Bourdain devoured it with salt and vinegar.
Bourdain and his dynamic production crew were happily fed all night, as manager Clinton Terry and I served up our fryers' bubbling menu items; bunless "burgher bangers and another family favorite, fried milky way bars.
A grand time was had by all particularly when the filming ended with a trip to PX; our throw back social lounge where Sprits are Raised by Todd Thrasher, resident mix master. Todd shook the ice and poured a few as

Bourdain sipped on his favorite drink, The Negroni.
We collectively agreed. Hes really as cool as he is on TV.
