President Barack Obama took a detour on his Asia trip Monday when he dined with celebrity chef and adventurous eater Anthony Bourdain in Vietnam.

Their meal and conversation will be featured in a September episode of CNN’s “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown.”
After finishing up at Hanoi restaurant Bún chả Hương Liên, Bourdain tweeted that he had picked up the $6 tab on a shared “bun Cha dinner.”

Obama arrived in Vietnam on Sunday, kicking off his tenth Asian trip since entering the White House. After Hanoi, the President heads for Ho Chi Minh City, before making his way to Japan. He concludes his trip later this week in Hiroshima, where the U.S. in 1945 dropped the first of two atomic bombs during World War II.
