I am obsessed with Pok Pok (Portland, NYC) and I haven't even eaten there yet. When Andy Ricker (chef) came down to night+market in LA to cook a family-style feast for Thai New Year last week, I somehow very luckily scored an invitation to the private event.
Ok, maybe I bullied my way in...
Since it was a New Year festival, I'm hoping it's okay to reset my New Year's resolutions, one of which now includes "Go to Portland. Eat at Pok Pok."
I missed photos of some of the dishes. Sometimes that happens when you're having too much fun.

Stir-fried golden rice vermicelli, by pokpok. This was one of the later courses and even though I had already indulged to the point of unladylike fullness, I ate almost the entire plate (meant for the table) by myself.
