The green papaya salad was also a hit.
Its that place you want to go back to as soon as youve left.Its Portland location is at 3226 Southeast Division Street, while the New York City location is in the Columbia Street Waterfront District in Brooklyn.But again it was the attention to detail with edible garnish leovegas casino uitbetalen and sauce that lifted it from nice to wonderful.Crispy on the outside, soft, juicy and tender on the inside it was sweet and rich and perfectly cooked, but what made it exceptional was the small bowl of flat pieces of cucumber, daikon and coriander soaked in lemon juice.The Caramelised Pork Belly (10 the Crispy Duck Spring Roll (8 the Green Papaya Salad (16) and the Wok-fried Asian Greens (8) were all in generous portions and each was a wonderfully balanced mix of tastes and textures.There is also a branch of the "Pok Pok" in New York.The crispy Duck Spring Roll was huge (cut in two) and loaded to almost bursting with shredded duck, carrot, cabbage and coriander before being deep fried.Before you think Ive lost all sense and credibility recommending a place which does that, try.The service is friendly, the food is great and the decor (while simple) is clean and bright with little touches of contemporary chic.The founder and chief chef is Andy Ricker.It looked huge and we wondered if wed get through it, but I think even if we hadnt had the room we couldnt have stopped ourselves going back for more, so addictive was the taste.This would be perfect for a big group looking for something that wont break the bank but I have enjoyed it twice with only two of us and am planning my third visit already.It was a decent serving for a small plate too.Even the rather ordinary dish of wok-fried Asian greens was just a notch above other places with garlic, oyster sauce and roasted chilli and it had a really well-rounded depth of flavour.While pleasant on its own it was fabulous with the sweet tamarind dipping sauce and a small salad loaded with thinly sliced pickled ginger.
On one hand you want to tell everyone about the great place youve just found and on the other hand you want to keep it secret. .
A friend and I went to check out Pok Pok on a Tuesday night.

It was surprisingly busy for a restaurant that has only been open three months and now I see why.
