On Sunday, January 28th, Atlanta’s most notable Elites descended upon the just-recently-opened Lao street food joint, Snackboxe Bistro. The owner, Thip Aathakhanh, and her staff crafted a customized menu featuring staples like chicken larb to khao chee to one of my favorite noodle dishes, khao poon. Oh, and who could forget their sweet lotus blossom cakes?
To add to the fun, Snackboxe Bistro brought in a young woman from the community to bless the event, and the band — playing traditional Lao music — encouraged all of us to lam vong.
Yelpie award winners were also announced. Congrats to the following:
