Let’s be real — you would never catch Gordon Ramsay or Paula Dean in the Bronx with Desus & Mero, eating at hole in the wall spots while talking about hip hop.
Remember when he pulled up in H-Town to look at whips with Slim Thug:
Or how about the time he made himself a household name with kids when he played Dr. Tony on Yo Gabba Gabba.

@Sweentck: “Best hood show for toddlers lol RT @therealbuckwild: Laughing at my son doin biz’ beat of the day on yo gabba gabba. Smh”
Let’s not forget when Anthony taught Obama the art of the noodle slurp after having a $6 meal in Vietnam:

Anthony allowed us to travel the world with him and to see things most of us probably wouldn’t have if it weren’t for him.
Happy Birthday to the King of food and travel. Rest in peace to the legend.
