What does a celebrity foodie eat when he comes to Pittsburgh?

If you're Anthony Bourdain, you go for pierogies and wash them down with a Yuengling.

The picture -- simply labeled WESTERN PA -- didn't sit well with some of Bourdain's Facebook followers. Some suggested he should've had grilled onions on his pierogies. Others dished out their disapproval of Yuengling. "A true Yinzer drinks Iron City Beer," commented one follower.

The globe-trotting CNN star has been in Pittsburgh filming his show "Parts Unknown." The travel show explores cuisines of a variety of places around the world. He recently traveled to Antarctica to explore what people there eat, according to People magazine.

Bourdain was spotted at The Squirrel Hill Cafe last week. His visit prompted cheers from fans, including the Port Authority of Allegheny County.
