Pok Pok PDX

My last day in Portland Mike and I headed over to the latest hot Thai joint in PDX (aka Portland). It more than lived up to the streams of praise & accolades. Starting out as a small lunch cart, they've evolved and now occupy a small house right next door which they've named Whiskey Soda Lounge.


The reviews said we had to try the Papaya Pok Pok, a green papaya salad with tomatoes, long beans, Thai chili, lime juice, dried shrimp, ground pork & peanuts tossed in a coconut milk dressing. Just enough chili to give it a little kick!
We paired that with Kai Yaang, charcoal roasted game hen stuffed with lemongrass, garlic, spices and served with a sweet & sour dipping sauce.

I'm a Thai soup fan and we added an order of Kaeng Om Neua, a brothy beef jungle curry soup. This was my favorite! Pair these with a couple of Thai beers and it's a beautiful thing. Although eating outside was fine with us, if you prefer to eat inside the Whiskey Soda Lounge, they only accept reservations of 5 or more, and yes...reservations are needed. My only complaint was the rice. You actually have to order it separately (which is a little unusual that it doesn't come with any of the dishes) and it's $2.00 for about 1 cup?... Don't get me wrong it's no deal breaker, but it continues to nag me.

Good Thai, unpretentious and fun location. Next time your path crosses Portland, treat yourself to some amazing Thai.

Eat up!

Yummy...I think I might just go to Portland to try it. Heard the weather there right now is similar to Thai weather too: hot and muggy.

Oh, that sounds fantastic! I love the intensity of Thai spices and herbs and can never, ever resist a good noodle dish. Thanks for sharing.

BTW--I didn't see an email on your blog to get in touch with you about a lunch date. My email is on my blog under my picture if you'd still like to try to get together.

Seem pretty healthy to me. Then again, I'm hardly a good judge of healthy.

Hey - where are you? Did you run off and not come back? We want more food coverage! :-)

Hi, I saw you wrote on my mom's blog so I decided to check yours out. It's funny to see all those dishes on your post because that is what I eat every day, except rice is always included!
