Bangkok 96 Street Food was founded by Hmong Chef, Genevieve Vang, who opened her Thai restaurant, Bangkok 96, with husband, Guy, in 1996. Her new fast casual eatery concept, located inside the new collective and beer hall, Detroit Shipping Company, is an homage to Southeast Asian “jungle” cuisine remixed with American flair. It is the life story of an immigrant who believes in hard work and luck. Genevieve has appeared on Food Network’s Clash of the Grandmas; served as a food movie consultant; and catered for world-renowned decision makers.
The idea is to spread hope and awareness in cultural differences through food and community engagements one bite at a time.

Chef Genevieve is also an entrepreneur who created healthy allergen-free seasoning powder and instant broth powder available at Thai Feast and Amazon. It made more sense to offer gluten free and vegan dishes for everyone to enjoy at Bangkok 96 Street Food and let customers create Thai food at home with ease.
At the Detroit Shipping Company, customers have the option to order papaya salad and a Pad Thai roll without fish sauce and still taste the authentic flavor profile as traditional Thai taste.
In addition, Bangkok 96 Street Food uses eco-friendly containers and utensils. Meats are delivered everyday and locally sourced from trusted purveyors without antibiotics or hormones.
