Not even the president says no to cheap noodles.

Barack Obama had dinner with chef Anthony Bourdain on Tuesday at a "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant in Hanoi, Vietnam, the BBC reports. The dinner was filmed for an upcoming episode of Bourdain's CNN show "Parts Unknown," which returns for its eighth season this fall. 

The menu included bún chả, a traditional spread of pork, broth, rice noodles and greens. 

"Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer," Bourdain tweeted. "The president's chopstick skills are on point," he added on Instagram.

The total bill, according to Bourdain, was just $6. "I picked up the check," he announced.
