The folks at Alamo Street Eat Bar are probably used to all the film crews after July’s “Eat St.” filming.
On Tuesday night the food truck park and bar was paid yet another film crew visit, this time by “Aquiles en Houston” host Aquiles Chavez and Aaron Sanchez, chef and owner of Centrico, who’s appeared on Food Network’s “Chopped”, “Chefs vs City” and as a season one contestant on “The Next Iron Chef.”
The duo was in town to visit with the Institute of Chili, owned by Ana Fernandez.
“The producer said two celeb chefs would be coming, but I had no idea Aaron would be here,” says Fernandez who watches “Chopped” nightly.
Because of the truck’s tight space, filming took more or less four hours. The production crew filmed Fernandez making her famous chili, and preparing the truck’s most popular item, “The Bomb,” which features brisket on a bun topped with chili, a fried egg and cheese. The chefs also talked about the history of the truck which brings to light the history of the Chili Queens of San Antonio.
The episode will be aired in South America, Mexico and some Fox affiliates in the States sometime in March.
