There are plenty of Thai and Vietnamese restaurants in Atlanta, but only a few Laotian spots. Laos is sandwiched between Vietnam and Thailand (and also shares borders with China, Cambodia, and Myanmar), and its food in some ways bridges its neighbors’ more popular cuisines. In fact, many Thai dishes—such as larb—are actually of Laotian origin. I didn’t have a go-to Laotian place in Atlanta until last month, when husband and wife team Vanh Sengaphone and Thip Athakhanh opened Snackboxe Bistro in the recently revived Doraville development that’s home to Super H Mart, Miss Gogi, and Kula Revolving Sushi. The couple hatched the idea for the restaurant after a 2016 trip to their native Laos; Vanh handles the operational side of Snackboxe, while Thip is the creative force in the kitchen, where she blends tradition and trends.
