We were a few minutes early so we poked around this cute bookstore, Freebird, a cooperative.

“Bad Titles.” “Great Jackets.” “Unfortunate Author Photos.”

The famous Vietnamese-style wings:

So good. Crunchy, full of umami, just spicy enough.

From the website:

Ike’s Vietnamese Fish Sauce Wings (Available spicy) 16
Natural Draper Valley chicken wings marinated in fish sauce and sugar, deep fried, tossed in caramelized Phu Quoc fish sauce and garlic and served with Vietnamese table salad. Based on Pok Pok PDX cook Ike’s recipe from his home in Vietnam. 

Prawn and pork hot pot:lj021817pokpok15

A wonderful broth, so aromatic and fresh, with super-fresh prawns and rich pork. The noodles were cooked perfectly.

From the web site:

Kung Op Wun Sen    18
Fresh head-on prawns baked in a clay pot with pork belly, lao jiin, soy, ginger, cilantro root, black pepper, Chinese celery and bean thread noodles. Served with naam jiim seafood. The Chinese influence on Thai food in full evidence.

 

Chang Mai sausage:

Not a lot of kick, just a smooth, subtle flavor and a nice chunky texture. Merguez-ish.

From the website:

Sai Ua Samun Phrai    18
Chiang Mai sausage with herbs, aromatics and Burmese curry powder. Grilled and served with Naam Phrik Num (spicy green chili dip),  Khaep Muu (Thai pork rinds) and steamed crudite.  Rustic and spicy, should be eaten with sticky rice.
