THE owner of a Hanoi noodle shop where Anthony Bourdain slurped down "bun cha" with former USA president Barack Obama expressed her shock and sorrow today over the death of the globetrotting celebrity chef.

"Tony had been in a dark mood these past couple of days..." "Success beyond his wildest dreams".

Rocquigny said that, "there is no element that makes us suspect that someone came into the room at any moment".

When the crew heard of the news, everyone "just sat on the ground", master butcher Christine Speisser, who was to show Bourdain around the market, told People.

It was one of his last meals.

"The world would not be better off without you", she said in a now-deleted video posted to social media.

Oliver wrote on Instagram: "I have to say I'm in total shock to hear that the wonderful @anthonybourdain has just died". She said the two hosts had "really bonded" over talking about their daughters.

Rezaian spoke Sunday with CNN's Brian Stelter on "Reliable Sources" about how Bourdain's legions of fans should continue to honor the globe-trotting television host and writer.

Highlighting his modest and humble character, Wang says Bourdain responded with a simple, "I'm just calling out good food like it is, that's all".

Lotti plans to dine at the Chambard's restaurant, and "I will have a thought about him".

"When you have stuff swimming around in your head it can all become a bit much".

Bourdain's struggles with depression were previously brought to light in a 2016 episode of his show, where he visited Argentina - a country which fascinated him because it embraced mental health treatment.

"I will not waste anybody's time with expressions of shock, surprise, or personal upset, beyond saying that I am ashamed that I was clearly not the kind of person that women friends who knew - and had stories to tell - felt comfortable confiding in", Bourdain wrote in a piece for Medium. News. The insider said that in the weeks before his passing, Bourdain appeared to act "normal, upbeat and happy", but added, "He's usually an introvert so it wasn't unusual that he kept to himself".

"If you're from a marginalized, dehumanized community, you know what Anthony Bourdain meant", tweeted Mohammad Alsaafin. "And once you were drawn in, it was about the experience, it was about the connection, it was about his interaction - his interactions with people". At that point, wrote Bourdain, "my nightly attempts at suicide ended". "The guy speaks like a bullet train with all the facts on his palm, delivering what we need to know precisely from his passion for Malaysian heritage cuisine".

"Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer".
