Following the tragic death of Kate Spade and celebrity chef, author and personality Anthony Bourdain, many celebrities and famous faces have come out to pay tribute to the sad losses. Most noteworthy of the group, Barack Obama took to Twitter to pay his respects to Bourdain, posting an old photo with him.

As part of an appearance on Bourdain’s CNN show, Parts Unknown as the president back in 2016, the pair dined at a Hanoi restaurant, eating pork noodles and beer. “He taught us about food,” wrote Obama. “But more importantly, about its ability to bring us together.”

For Bun Cha Huong Lien, the visit to the small restaurant proved to be hugely exciting for the owners. As reported by the Daily Mailthe restaurant decided to preserve the remnants of the visit including the cutlery and stools along side a photo of Bourdain and Obama. So if you find yourself at the Vietnamese hot spot take a look.

“The customers love it, many take photos next to the table,” co-owner of the restaurant Nguyen Thi Hang Nga told the BBC. “For us, it is a nice memory that we will cherish forever. It is not a PR gimmick, I don’t think we get more clientele.”
