Anthony Bourdain seemingly didn't have any reservations about picking up the $6 tab while dining out with President Obama in Vietnam.

The "Parts Unknown" creator and host shared a pretty diplomatic meal of pork meatballs with Obama who is on his week-long trip of Asia. He started it off with a visit to Hanoi, Vietnam's capital city, on Monday. While the two dined, it appeared that no one around them really cared about either one.

“Total cost of the bun cha dinner with the President: $6.00. I picked up the check,” tweeted Bourdain. The former chef is in Vietnam filming an episode of his CNN traveling food show.

The President received a very warm welcome when he arrived to dine at the Bún cha Huong Liên restaurant, a typical eatery for people of all classes. The dinner, which was captured by an Imgur user, shows that both were eating a traditional Hanoi meal that featured grilled pork served with broth and white rice noodles. Bourdain joked about the seating at the casual eatery:

“The President’s chopstick skills are on point,” praised Bourdain.

The President, it is important to note, is not allowed to receive personal gifts from foreign officials or governments without the consent of Congress - who at this point wouldn't agree to let Obama do anything - but he is typically allowed to accept unsolicited gifts from the American public if they are under $20.
