Atlanta Craves Ep 1--Buford Highway

Listen to the episode here! Today on Atlanta Craves we take a trip down fabled Buford Highway, the bustling corridor that runs from midtown through Brookhaven, Chamblee, Doraville and beyond 285 into Gwinnett county. This fascinating melting pot includes distinct pockets of Korean, Mexican, Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian, Bangladeshi, Central American, Somali, and Ethiopian business and culture.And, perhaps most known to Atlantans are its dizzying variety of restaurants.

Today we are joined by Lily Pabian from the non-profit organization, We Love BuHi.We Love BuHi's mission is to bring individuals and communities together for multicultural experiences shared through our people, places, and stories to create connection, awareness, and belonging within Buford Highway's international corridor.
