Beer and Hot Dogs in Hanoi with the President

I always enjoy these vantage points behind episodes of Parts Unknown by Anthony Bourdain. Admittedly, especially when he writes them on Medium :)

This one about Hanoi is especially great due to the especially great surprise guest star, President Obama, "a guy who likes a bowl of spicy, savory pork and noodles with a cold beer." Notes Bourdain:

"I will sure as shit remember this trip to Vietnam. Not very long ago at all, I was a 44-year-old guy still dunking French fries with no hope of ever seeing Rome, much less Hanoi — much less EVER sitting across from the President of the United States, talking about hot dogs."
