Thai street food is the name of the game here. But in order to combat the spicy heat, you need a decent drink. In addition to their signature water flavored with pandanas leaf, Pok Pok sells a line of drinking vinegars (Pok Pok Som) that are essentially their own bottled shrub recipes. Seasonal shrubs can be ordered with soda water or featured in one of several cocktails on the menu.
Pok Pok has quite a few cocktail choices along with a very good stock of foreign and domestic whiskies. It is a busy place, so you may have to wait a while for a table, but you can always head over to the Whiskey Soda Lounge while you wait, and the food is always worth it! There is a second location in NE and another in New York.
