The meal I eat when I’m in Portland more than any other is at the iconic Asian restaurant Pok Pok. Their vietnamese hot wings are seriously great, I can’t get enough of them.
Another, less obvious, reason I eat at Pok Pok so much would be the fact that there is a take out window. Generally, even when I go on a Tuesday night (my preffered dining night), there is a wait between 45 minutes and an hour. I’m not huge on waiting that long to eat by myself. The only thing lonelier than eating by yourself is waiting an hour by yourself to eat by yourself.
I’d like to do a full review at some point, but if I don’t get a chance, let it be known to all that Pok Pok is legit and it gets this weary traveler’s seal of approval.
