Residents of and visitors to East Atlanta Village have a brand new eatery to check out. We Suki Suki, a somewhat suggestively named Vietnamese restaurant, has just opened it doors. WSS is apparently a straightforward banh mi shop offering four renditions of Vietnam’s answer to the po boy. Located in the former Village Ice Cream space, WSS also provides bubble tea addicts (aka me) with an opportunity to get their fix for just $3 a pop. A little more 411 for you after the jump.
I don’t have too many details on the place besides what the owners put up on their Yelp page. It reads as follows:
Exported from Vietnam to the United States in 1975, Q started her first business at 19 in Chicago while opening Eurasia for the Levy Restaurants and attending Art Institute of Chicago. Relocated to Atlanta in 1993, she became Clienteling Specialist for Bebe, Intl. at Phipps Plaza. In 1997, Q became Vice President over home furnishings at Horizon Pacific Home (T&G and Mumbo Jumbo partner). In 1999, she packed her bags and headed to Vietnam, becoming 1st Sentinel for Evian water as well Assistant Director for Shooting Gallery Singapore and launching MTV Asia in HCMC. Trinh returned to the USA in 2000, and in 2002, Trinh formed Whatbox? Inc Brand Building agency (think outside the box…think WHAT box?), launching Tiger Beer in theUS [sic] and taking the brand nationally through the Anheuser Busch distribution network. Q moved back to East Atlanta in 2008 to raise her two boys, who now both proudly attend Wesley International Academy.
They’ve already started soliciting opinions on their twitter account, so it seems that they are ready to rock and roll. They’re open 11am – 7pm daily, in case you’re looking to check it out. Though their website doesn’t have anything on it yet, you can find some info on their tumblr.
[thanks for the tip friend!]
