Pok Pok & Whiskey Soda Lounge Restaurant Review

: What started as a food cart inspired by chef/owner Andy Ricker's travels in Thailand is now a restaurant. Located down a ramp in the building's basement, it's surrounded by covered outdoor tables. Kick off your meal with an intriguing cocktail such as the tamarind sour, a Southeast Asian play on a whiskey sour. Homemade drinking vinegars, as sour as their name implies, may be an acquired taste. Then move on to the nuanced and often very spicy dishes showcasing the full spectrum of sweet, sour, salty and spicy flavors. Order several dishes and share (portions tend to be small), but don't miss the addictive Vietnamese chicken wings. Another favorite is kai yaang, a fragrant roasted game hen stuffed with lemon grass, garlic, pepper and cilantro. We also recommend the cha ca “la vong," or catfish marinated in turmeric and served with a minty rice noodle. Delicate palates may want to order khao soi, a traditional creamy curry soup made with a special homemade spice mix and fresh-pressed coconut milk. Sticky rice, served in its own plastic bag, will soothe any after-effects of the chiles.
