Genevieve Vang isn't Thai. The owner and operator of Bangkok 96 was born in Laos where she lived during the Vietnam War. Later, her family moved to Thailand, where she fell in love with the exotic flavors of the country. Now Vang's sweet and sour soup and other Thai dishes she serves up at Bangkok 96 are famous throughout metro Detroit.
