The case seems like Bun cha Huong Lien - a delicacy of Hanoi, which has been widely known as Bun cha Obama since then-President Barack Obama enjoyed it during his official visit to Vietnam in 2016.
Bill Hockstedler is a candidate for US Senate in Nevada. He learned about Lau tom bau by Chang through recommendations from his friends in Vietnam.
“I felt the warmth and kindness of Vietnamese people during my visits to a few places in Vietnam. It is your friendliness, your closeness, your sincerity. I really love Vietnamese cuisine, in which I am especially impressed with the hot pot at Lau tom bau by Chang, a very unique dish that I have never seen anywhere in the world. All the ingredients and seasonings are great," he remarked.
