The Table Where Bourdain & Obama Once Dined Has Been Memorialized

In a 2016 episode of Anthony Bourdain’s CNN series Parts Unknown, the chef turned TV-host traveled to Hanoi, Vietnam, and while there, he dined with none other than America’s 44th president Barack Obama. The absurdly cool pair chowed down on bún chả, a grilled pork and rice noodle dish, while chatting about their world travels and showing off their chopstick skills. Nearly two years have passed since they met for that meal, but their place settings appear to have remained nearly untouched. That’s right, according to a recently shared Instagram photo, the restaurant where Bourdain and Obama ate bún chả has memorialized the meeting in a very strange way.
