Bahn Mi and King Cakes in New Orleans East
On this episode, we head to New Orleans… New Orleans East to be exact, to the Vietnamese American neighborhood of Versailles, where Linh Garza’s family opened Dong Phuoung Banh Mi & Baked Goods in 1982 after arriving in New Orleans as refugees. We talk to Linh about how her family’s bakery became one of the hottest bakeshops in the city, and ask how it felt when it was named an “American Classic” by the prestigious James Beard Foundation.
