Louisiana Daily Photo: Village de L’Est

15 miles to the east of the French Quarter in New Orleans sits one of the largest Vietnamese communities in North America: Village de L’Est.

It is an absolute treasure trove of Vietnamese culture with churches, art galleries, pho parlors, banh mi shops, karaoke bars, fresh fish markets and nearly any other thing you could think of that is at least tangentially connected to the culture of the Vietnamese people.

I go here to gorge on Vietnamese cuisine, take photos, and shop for groceries that you can’t get in downtown New Orleans.
