Watch President Obama and Anthony Bourdain Slurp Noodles in Vietnam

Earlier this year, you might remember, President Barack Obama swung by Hanoi, Vietnam, to join Anthony Bourdain for a casual meal at what the Parts Unknown host called “a working-class joint.” It made quite the impression on Hanoians, who, Bourdain tells Esquire, were thrilled that Obama was eating “bún chả, which is a specifically Hanoian thing,” and not “at a formal banquet.” The pair’s meal will be featured on the next episode of Parts Unknown, which airs on September 25, but, in the meantime, you can catch a glimpse of their conversation and Bourdain teaching the president how to properly eat bún chả.
