Two George Foreman grills, a run-of-the-mill coffeemaker, and just $99 in the bank—that’s all Quynh Trinh had when she opened We Suki Suki in East Atlanta Village in 2012.
Quynh Trinh goes by “Q” and calls everyone “honey” or “babe.” A former brand manager for Singaporean Tiger Beer who grew up in Chicago, she took over a sliver of an ice cream parlor in East Atlanta Village last year to open We Suki Suki, a spunky sandwich and tea shop. If her kitchen equipment (a Foreman grill and a toaster oven) at first gave me pause, any doubts about the seriousness of her intentions vanished after one bite of her traditional banh mi subs. The crisp, airy Vietnamese-style baguettes are showered with marinated meats or tofu and garnished with slivers of carrot and daikon, sprigs of cilantro, and slices of jalapeño. They’re as skillfully composed as any banh mi you’d find on Buford Highway—and at $5 apiece, they’re nearly as inexpensive.
