Pok Pok Wing | Brooklyn, SE Portland

Melanie Wong | Aug 30, 201802:37 AM     3

Once caffeinated at Upper Left https://www.chowhound.com/post/upper-..., we headed to Pok Pok Wing for a post-breakfast snack.

We ordered ours half spicy and half regular. The spicy version has a little bit of red chile pepper condiment but is not that fiery. Pungent with garlic and fish sauce, the chicken wings burst with savory/sweet/salty flavors and have great texture of velvety, juicy marinated meat under the firm, well-browned skin. I especially loved the crunchy, charred, caramelized edges. A little Sriracha sauce from the squeeze bottles on the regular wing delivered more interesting heat tones and suited me more than the spicy wing version. An order's accompanied by tart-sweet daikon and carrot pickles, as well as crunchy, lightly dressed fresh cabbage.

I'd been somewhat leery of the Andy Ricker phenomenon, but after tasting these, I'm a fan. Thanks to stevewi for the pro tip to come to the Pok Pok Wing fast food counter for Ike's Vietnamese Fish Sauce Wings to avoid the wait at the main Pok Pok. Besides being less crowded, a full order of six wings is priced lower at $13 here.
