President Barack Obama stopped for a meal with celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain on the first leg of the President’s historic Asia trip. The President will appear on an upcoming episode of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown on CNN, where the host dines on local eats off the beaten path around the globe.
The two ate at Bun Cha Huong Lien in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi just hours after the president lifted a decades-long arms embargo on the first day of his trip. Bourdain shared a picture of the two dining on Instagram Monday, saying Obama’s “chopstick skills are on point.”
The celebrity chef also tweeted the total cost of their meal was $6 — and the adventurous eater paid the bill.
President Obama will soon travel from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City before heading off to Japan. While in Japan, the President will become the first sitting U.S. President to visit Hiroshima, where the U.S. dropped an atomic bomb during World War II.
