Pok Pok: hurt so good, Part 1

Pok Pok’s complex spices and grilled perfection are well worth the 45 minute wait, especially since they’ve conveniently built the Whiskey Soda Lounge across the street so you don’t get parched. When your table is ready, someone sporting a secret service style ear piece comes over and tells you it’s time to walk across the street and dine.

Pok Pok’s famous chicken wings are what got them the infamous 13,000 page spread in Food and Wine and they’re amazing, however don’t pair them with the spicy game hen and green bean salad like we did or you will be in so much pain you won’t be able to taste anything for a good 10 minutes, like we stupidly did.


Once our tongues were able to settle down a bit, we could kinda taste the catfish over vermicelli noodles, and eventually we were able to tell that its lemon oil cilantro peanut sauce was stellar. To top it all off, we had some plainish sticky rice and some scrumtious coconut rice, both served in adorable bamboo baskets.
