Is Ensenada Urban Food Star Headed to New York with Anthony Bourdain?

"La Guerrerense" owner hints on Twitter she might indeed

It's been a fantastic couple of years for Sabina Bandera and her team at "La Guerrerense". Her international culinary fame has grown exponentially during that time, having gone from representing Mexico at international food congresses in Asia, to captivating the attention and taste buds of the world's "culinary bad boy", Anthony Bourdain.

Nobody is safe from the spell of señora Sabina's cooking, especially after her appearance on Bourdain's "No Reservations" series, exposing one of Baja's best kept secrets to the world. So it was probably only a matter of time that Bourdain would look for a way to take her delicious urban street food to New York, and although it isn't yet official, take a look at this small conversation between the two of them on Twitter:

La Guerrerense: Mr. Bourdain, I hear you are looking for Ensenada style ceviche at your "food court" in New York, have anybody in mind?

Bourdain: Of course! you! Who else? Interested?

La Guerrerense: Yes we are! See you soon! :)

Anthony Bourdain is currently working on a project in New York that will take the best representatives of cooking from around the globe, specialized on authentic street food services. Inviting "La Guerrerense" would be logical, given the friendship that's developed between both of them and Bourdain's predilection for Baja cuisine.

During its 38 years of experience, food from "La Guerrerense" has delighted even celebrities, ranging from Alejandro Fernández to Dita Von Teese, Roberto Palazuelos, as well as others like our good friend Tony Tee and Mexican political figures.

But most importantly is that Sabina Bandera hasn't let all of her fame effect her cooking and the way she treats all those that go and visit her now "legendary" tostada cart.
