President Obama may have lunched with Vietnamese president Tran Dai Quang in the Presidential Palace, but he spent dinner in more modest surroundings: at a local restaurant in Hanoi. Obama joined TV personality and travel guru Anthony Bourdain for a meal at a restaurant called Bún cha Huong Liên.

Bourdain shared a photo of the pair with the caption “The president’s chopstick skills are on point.” The president is seen holding a bottle as he chats with Bourdain over bowls of noodles.
The TV host noted on Twitter that the two were eating bun Cha, a Vietnamese dish of grilled pork and noodles. Bourdain said he picked up the $6 tab.
