Lust List 2012: Fazal


1 comment

Job: Bartender and manager at So Ba
Age: 29
Relationship status: Has a girlfriend

Fazal is the first to admit he had an unusual childhood. Growing up on a halal farm as part of an extended Pakistani family that spoke Vietnamese around the house, he didn't learn English until he was 5. Oh, did we mention that the family farm was in Loganville? Having moved to the ATL a few years ago, Fazal now puts his knowledge of Vietnamese cuisine to work at So Ba in East Atlanta Village, near where he lives. He's also studying environmental remediation — read: cleaning up pollution others have left behind — at GSU. If you see him riding around on his motorcycle, just don't point. Hot guys get embarrassed, too.
