Obama’s ‘Bun Cha’ Combo At 4$

The "bun cha" combo stands at VND85,000 ($4), comprising a ‘bun cha’ portion, a seafood fried spring roll and a bottle of Hanoi beer. Bun cha is not a strong competitor in comparison with other Vietnam famous street foods. But the thing that makes Hanoi’s ‘bun cha’ different from other street food lies in the skills required to make it, which cannot be mastered overnight.
 


The ‘bun cha’ combo Obama ordered during his trip in Vietnam has gone down in history, marked by a whole page in the menu of the street food place he dined in. The “bun cha” Obama ordered for dinner in Hanoi takes up the entire first page of the place’s menu. The combo stands at VND85,000 ($4), comprising a " bun cha" portion, a seafood fried spring roll and a bottle of Hanoi beer. Bun cha is not a strong competitor in comparison with other Vietnam famous street foods. But the thing that makes Hanoi’s ‘bun cha’ different from other street food lies in the skills required to make it, which cannot be mastered overnight. “Bun cha' ingredients are easy to find and the recipe is not that complicated. It's the way people combine them that makes them unique.
 

The menu with a presidential touch

Since the last President of United States had a dinner here, ‘sold out’ has become the norm

People have been flocking to the shop and even queuing for hours on the street, waiting for their turn before the shop runs out of the "Obama portion".
