Anthony Bourdain: Six True Things About Dinner With Obama

The President is an Asiaphile. He spoke wistfully of his time in Indonesia and his memories of the smells and flavors of street food there. The reaction among regular people in Hanoi to the fact that the US President chose to eat Bun Cha was beyond all imagining. The effect was unbelievable. People were actually crying the next day, describing to me their shock and their pride, the reactions of their neighbors, to this completely unexpected choice of meal—and the venue. He was among the very few guests on my show who ever asked the camera crew if they got to eat too. And he made a point of taking a picture with all of them when we were done.

President Obama’s Bún chả Hương Liên Experience

Whitney Filloon: President Obama Just Had Dinner With Anthony Bourdain

In case Barack Obama hadn’t already secured his place in history as the Coolest President, this should do it: Tonight, POTUS is dining with Anthony Bourdain in Vietnam’s capital city of Hanoi. What will the dynamic duo’s dinner conversation entail, and more importantly, what will they feast upon? According to the Wall Street Journal’s White House correspondent Carol Lee, they’ll be eating at a restaurant called Bún chả Hương Liên. (Bún chả is a traditional dish hailing from Hanoi that consists of grilled pork served in a broth or dipping sauce, flanked by rice noodles and fresh herbs.)

According to a press release from CNN, scenes from the momentous dinner will appear on an upcoming episode of Parts Unknown to air during the show’s eighth season in September. With 241 days left in the White House, what other Cool Things will Obama accomplish? He’s already become the first president to brew beer in the White House, and impressed his hipster taste in coffee upon the Oval Office, which now uses Chemex brewers emblazoned with the presidential seal.
