Once a student of interior design at Georgia State, Hieu switched gears to open Crawfish Shack Seafood on Atlanta’s Buford Highway in 2008. With the help of his parents and sister, Hieu dishes out fresh po-boys with a Vietnamese-influenced remoulade, spring rolls made with Louisiana shrimp, and offers a traditional Vietnamese drink of pressed sugarcane spiked with sweet Louisiana satsumas in lieu of sweet tea.
