I was deeply saddened in January when Podnah’s pit bbq moved out of the tiny restaurant space a block from my house. The pain was lessened however when Pok Pok Noi, a Thai street-food themed joint, moved in. The Curry Noodle soup and fish sauce glazed Vietnamese style wings (which tastes better than it sounds) are easily in my top 5 foods in Portland.
Aside from amazing food, the design and interior of this place is really cool. I was told that most of the design (logo, menu’s, SOM labels, etc) was done by Makelike, an amazing Portland studio who I had the pleasure to meet with last year and the interior lighted signage was created by pok pok’s owner.
While there’s not a lot of space, The few well placed focal points help to pack a visual punch.
