After years of writing books, hosting shows, having a publishing line, Anthony Bourdain is still busier than ever. At 60, he is releasing a new book, working on a food concept in New York, and continues to do shows.

This year, it's all about the Parts Unknown and No Reservations host's favorites: he recently talked about how he loves Japan, and shows the world how he is at home when he's cooking for the people he loves through a book.

In an interview with Business Insider, Bourdain was asked if there is a place in the world he will never get tired of; the place that continues to surprise him and keeps him coming back. "Japan is endlessly, endlessly interesting to me," he answered.

"I just returned from shooting yet another episode there with Masa Takayama and, oh, it was just amazing. I've made more shows there than any other country and I don't think I've even scratched the surface and I don't think I ever will," he added, highlighting that some of his favorite Japanese dishes include uni, soba with duck dipping sauce, and some good yakitori.

Bourdain is also busy putting together Bourdain Market in Pier 57-an ambitious, 57, the 560,000-square-foot hawker-style food hall in New York. It is not yet clear when this huge project (created with Youngwoo & Associates) will finally open its doors, but a report earlier revealed that the opening may have been pushed back by another two years.

Bourdain said in an earlier interview that the project is "a huge, huge, huge undertaking," and that they will need to work on a lot of things like paperwork, visas for the vendors, loans, and approvals by the city.

At the moment, Bourdain is busy promoting his recently-released Appetites, a cookbook that gives readers a peek into his life at home, featuring recipes that he would cook for family and friends when he's not traveling. It's only been out for a week, and already getting a lot of positive reviews.
