Oregon Favorite

Pok Pok is a place that was almost bucket list-ish for us. This was our second visit there. This time for lunch, the first time was for dinner. The weirdness of Portland + Asian flavors + inventive dishes = Pok Pok. We even love the whiskey lounge you wait in across the street. It’s all so good. And weird. The Portland-ness truly enhances the experience. It’s exactly the way it should be. And the wings are so f***ing good.
