In 1975 Ha Do escaped from South Vietnam as the country fell to North Vietnam. Fearing Communist rule he left his family behind and traveled by boat with only the clothes on his back making his way to a refugee camp in Indonesia before finally getting clearance to come to America. After eight years he finally was reunited with his family and in 1989 started his own bakery. Thirty years later, Hi Do Bakery has become a favorite of the West Bank as crowds flock to this Vietnamese bakery for French bread, pastries and amazing king cakes. Utilizing a French style of baking, Hi Do's King Cakes are not to be missed.
