Pictures of Obama and Bourdains budding bromance over dinner – filmed for the chefs CNN series “Parts Unknown” – quickly went viral, and now plaster the walls of the simple joint in Hanois leafy Old Quarter.Business has boomed ever since the presidential pork dinner. But the owner insists she isnt dining out on the Obama fame and has resisted offers from customers wanting to buy the table, instead freezing the dinnertime tableau for posterity.”I think its appropriate to preserve the memory of Mr Obama,” owner Nguyen Thi Lien told AFP.Posted in: ASIA IN FOCUS/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 1094568;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = https:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disqusload_file(“/includes/channel_right.html”);load_file(“/includes/footer.html”);$(document).ready(function($){$(“#channel-list .row-content”).each(function(){  if($(this).children().length==1){$(this).children().css(width,100%);}
