Judy Ann Santos joins Anthony Bourdain's legion of fans around the world in mourning his sudden death.
The 61-year-old host of Parts Unknown was found dead on June 8, 2018, at his hotel room in Le Chambard, Kaysersberg, France.
The first time Juday met him was in October 2008, at the former location of Cafe Ysabel in P. Guevarra, San Juan.
On Instagram, the Kapamilya star recalled, "Mr. Bourdain, I could still remember the first time I saw you. 'Ang tangkad tangkad pala nito? Nakakatakot siya.'
"Bigla akong napa-Ingles nang diretso nung kinausap na 'ko.
"Ibang klaseng kaba at kilig at the same time. Rest in peace our global ambassador..."
Look, behind Juday were her manager Jane Buencamino and China Cojuangco.
Her BFF Beth Tamayo also came.
Aside from their stolen shots with the famous chef, the two ladies also asked for an autograph on his book The Nasty Bits.
