Anthony Bourdain is one of those people that you just want to sit down with for a good meal and a long chat. And it seems even President Barack Obama agrees. The two enjoyed dinner together in Vietnam, where they chowed down on bún chả at Bún chả Hương Liên in the capital city of Hanoi. President Obama will be on an episode of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown discussing his interest in Vietnamese culture. The picture evidence is just amazing as you can see the two are simply enjoying a nice meal and everyone around them is doing the same, without paying too much attention. Describing the dinner the two shared, Bourdain wrote on his Twitter page: "Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer."

It will really be an interesting episode to see the discussion these two individuals have. If you're a fan of Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, then you are aware of the chef exploring the real culture of many lesser-known corners of the world. The president's dinner with Bourdain took place during his historical trip to Asia earlier this week. In the weeklong tour, Obama is expected to discuss trade opportunities and visit Hiroshima, Japan.

And if you're wondering how much this epic meal between Obama and Bourdain cost, you don't have to guess. According to the cool chef's Twitter account, the total came to $6 — and Bourdain picked up the check.

The episode will air once Season 8 begins in September. You can check out Bourdain's original Instagram post, where he says the "president's chopstick skills are on point."
