When Andy Ricker opened Pok Pok in 2008, he took the Pacific Northwest, and many of the nations most devoted eaters, by storm with his uniquely refined approach to Southeast Asian street food. In fact, his Vietnamese-inspired chicken wings and boldly flavored array of house specialties are in such hot demand that Ricker opened a location dedicated specifically to wings in New York City, which has since transformed into a shop specializing in Thai-style noodles. In April 2012, he opened Pok Pok NY on Brooklyn’s off-the-beaten-path Columbia Street Waterfront, and it proved so popular that last year it was forced to move into bigger digs up the street — but his Portland original remains Ricker's definitive establishment.  

Foursquare Tips

  • Pok Pok wings = best food item in Portland
  • Classically trained chef Andy Ricker is now a certified empire-builder, but its worth a trip here if you want to never look at Thai food the same way again. [Eater 38 Member]
  • The fish sauce wings really are that good.
  • The Fish Sauce Wings are probably the best item in all of Portland. Get in extra order to take home as they are even better the next day.
  • Try the wings at Pok Pok. I'm not a 'wing' guy per se but these are stupid good.
  • Chef and owner, Andy Ricker, knows drinking vinegars are big in Japan. Try his tart but weirdly refreshing mixers, in cocktails or topped with seltzer.
  • Dive into a platter of fish sauce chicken wings at Pok Pok in Southeast Portland.
  • You need to get there early (like 5pm) or be prepared for to wait in line. Get Ike's Vietnamese Fish Sauce Wings and the Kai Yaang and Sticky Rice. Get a Whiskeysoda Float for desert.
  • Khao Soi Kai can't be beat.
  • The water is made with pandan leaves which is why it's so delicious. It's the best water ever!
  • Just found out you can kick Ike's Wings up a notch and ask for them spicy. Delicious.
  • Wait there are 2 open tables and they can't seat us?
  • A late lunch or early dinner (2-5pm) is the way to go if you want to avoid the 1-2 hour wait in the evenings. Enjoy your chicken wings in peace.
  • Chicken wings, pork shoulder curry, prawn noodles, Dungeness crab. DO IT.
  • Order at least 2 portions of sticky rice per order of wings, then pinch off little wads of rice to wipe your fingers on and then eat that. Shame to waste that sauce on a napkin!
  • chicken wings are michlean star great, pork curry and khao soi kai and khaang hung leh are also can't miss- one of my favorites in PDX
