I went on a business trip to Hanoi, Vietnam.
Did you have any delicious food?
I went to a Vietnamese restaurant visited by former US President Obama! !
HUONG LIEN became a very popular restaurant after President Obama visited in May 2016.
For a while after President Obama’s visit, customers flocked to the restaurant to the point that it sold out by noon.
Bun Cha restaurant has opened its second store.
Hitori Gekidan is happy too! In the program Bonbi Girl “Gekidan Hitori in Vietnam 2-hour special”,

I went to “HUONG LIEN”.
Therefore, this article is about the places you should definitely stop by when you go to Hanoi, Vietnam.
Introducing the “Obama Set” (Combo Obama) that you should try.
Vietnamese-style tsukemen “Bun Cha”
President Obama visited Vietnam before the Ise-Shima Summit.
In Japan, it was reported that President Obama ate bun cha.
President Obama of the United States, who is visiting Vietnam, is visiting a popular restaurant in Hanoi.
We visited a restaurant incognito and enjoyed Hanoi’s famous noodle dish.
According to local media, President Obama sat on a plastic chair at the store.
He ordered a noodle dish called “bun cha” as well as local beer.
“Bun Cha” is fried spring rolls, meatballs, and rice noodles with plenty of vegetables.
It is one of Hanoi’s representative noodle dishes, eaten with sweet and sour dipping sauce.
One serving costs approximately 200 yen. President Obama reportedly ate two servings.
(From NHK news)
This is a photo displayed inside the HUONG LIEN store.
Did the customers around President Obama recognize him?
According to VIETJO, President Obama enjoyed his meal here for about an hour.
Apparently he took out 4 servings.
The seat where Obama sat is now surrounded by a plastic case.
It is no longer available.
This is the 1st floor of HUONG LIEN. The store is long and narrow, but it feels small.
The first floor taken from the entrance. Since the seats were full, we were directed to the second floor.
The stairs are at the back.
This is the second floor seat of Phuong Lien. There were not many customers, but when ordering, a group of Korean tourists
All of these seats were full, so I had a hard time ordering from the staff.
Obama Set (Combo Obama)
This is the menu. President Obama on the menu.
Most of the customers order the same food that President Obama ate, so
Apparently they made an Obama set (Combo Obama).
Of course, I also ordered the Obama set (Combo Obama).
I ordered the Obama set (Combo Obama), but the order list was for single items.
Fried Seafood Roll
Hanoi Beer (Bia Ha Noi)
The set of the above three items is the Obama set (Combo Obama).
85,000 VND (don), which is about 400 yen in Japanese yen.
In Japan, when you think of Vietnam, you think of pho, but when you come to Hanoi, you often eat bun.
Both pho and bun are made from rice flour, but the manufacturing methods are different, and bun is chewier than pho.
One plate is for one person. It may seem like a lot, but you can eat it easily.
Bun cha sauce. A sweet and sour sauce containing thinly sliced charcoal-grilled pork belly and meatballs.
The sweetness of this meat is so delicious! ! soft! !
Eat meat wrapped in vegetables.
Once the meat has reduced, add bun (noodles) and eat like tsukemen.
Fried seafood spring rolls. It’s freshly fried and crispy.
This is the Obama set (Combo Obama).
Eat by adding noodles and vegetables to a sweet and sour sauce.
There are a variety of vegetables such as coriander and herbs.
Fried seafood spring rolls are also dipped in sauce and eaten.
Too delicious! !
Just like the bun cha, I was also impressed by the fried seafood spring rolls.
The skin is fried crispy, and the shrimp and crab are packed tightly and delicious.
I was hesitant about ordering fried spring rolls because I always end up with leftovers, but I’m glad I did.
