Laotian food has long been overshadowed in Atlanta by the cuisine of neighboring Thailand. But with Snackboxe Bistro, there’s now an excellent representation of the underappreciated cuisine right here at PH’EAST. Husband and wife Vanh Sengaphone and Thip Athakhanh bring to life the bright flavors of Laotian food with heat and acid. With their quaint, fast-casual spot in Doraville, EaterAtlanta named Thip Athakhanh as its “Best Chef 2018” and it was awarded Best Laotian Food in Atlanta Magazine’s annual “Best of Atlanta” issue. Zagat recognized Snackboxe Bistro as one of its 15 Hottest Restaurants in America in 2018.
