I wasn’t planning to visit Bun Cha Obama on my visit khổng lồ Hanoi. There is already a well-worn Bourdain trail in Saigon, where the places that Bourdain has visited have sầu become tourist attractions. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. If it gets people away from the Intercontinental Buffet to lớn try a bun bo hue from the Lunch Lady that Bourdain featured, then I’m all for it.

It wasn’t until I was wandering around the old quarter of Hanoi and saw a restaurant called “Obama Bun Cha” that I gave sầu it a thought. This restaurant was not the actual place Bourdain took Obama, yet here they were cashing in on the association.


I saw a place in Nha Trang advertising Obama Bun Cha as well, và no doubt there are other places up and down the country doing the same thing.


I started thinking that I wanted bun cha – a regular thought in Hanoi – so a walk to a new neighbourhood khổng lồ have Bun Cha Obama seemed lượt thích a good activity.

The restaurant is Bun Cha Huong Lien on 24 Le Van Huu. It’s south of the ancient city, still in old Hanoi but with wider streets. There are many embassies in this area, though don’t imagine it all to lớn be villas and mansions as it’s still chaotic Hanoi.

When I reached Le Van Huu street I started counting down the numbers to 24, and I felt self-conscious for being such a tourist. There is only one reason that a foreigner is walking down this street. I found the restaurant and I was surprised that there was no reference on the outside sign.


Step inside though and the place is a virtual shrine for that fateful day, with pictures lining the walls.


Even though most places serve bun phụ vương for lunch I figured it will be open all hours now. I went at 5pm lớn get there before the evening rush. The place was busy with a phối of locals & foreigners. There was an American family sitting opposite me, with the dad pointing at the pictures khổng lồ his two children.

There were some Japanese & Korean tourists there, & then a large Vietnamese family group rolled in and went upstairs. I wondered if the Vietnamese diners were regular visitors or tourists.


While I was waiting for my bun phụ vương I walked around the room khổng lồ study the photos. This phokhổng lồ in particular simultaneously filled me with joy & sadness. Goddamn I miss No Drama Obama.
