Former KC attorney to taste prime time
Former Kansas City attorney Bonjwing Lee will bring his popular food perspectives to prime time on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations on The Travel Chanel.
Lee, a self-made food critic, photographer, and published author, writes The Ulterior Epicure, a blog dedicated to the review of foods from restaurants worldwide.
The Ulterior Epicure first appeared in 2004. While Lee published the blog anonymously for seven years, in 2011 he unveiled his identity.
In addition to writing the Ulterior Epicure, Lee co-authored and photographed “bluestem, the cookbook,” with Colby and Megan Garrelts, the chef-owners of Kansas City’s Bluestem restaurant. The book was released in November, 2011.
It was only a year ago that Lee became a freelance food aficionado full-time.
Lee will appear on No Reservations in May for the show’s Kansas City edition, which focuses on Kansas City BBQ.

According to KCTV5: “Now we have a lot of restaurants that are independently owned, that are not corporately run, that are doing something special, doing something local. I think it’s great people like Tony Bourdain want to come to our city and tell the rest of the country what we have to offer,” Lee said.
Lee enjoys traveling to exotic locations. Like Bourdain, he always samples the local fare. But Lee said Kansas City’s food scene is still where he is most proud to call home.
