My hubby wanted to try Pok Pok so we ventured over to Division to find a crowd waiting on a cool overcast Saturday afternoon. The crowd had us both thinking well, from the looks of things, this is going to be quite a treat! WRONG!!
When we checked in, we were told its a 45 minute wait, I spotted seats at the outdoor counter and the Receptionist said, give me 5 minutes...which was good because the thought of waiting 45 minutes wasn't appealing. Ok, so...we sit down and order the infamous wings! Honestly, there's more hype than flavor! They weren't anything special and definitely don't live up to the hype...heck, I've had better wings at Buffalo Wild Wings!
So, then my husband orders the boar collar and I get a noodle dish...can't remember the name of it but anyway, the food arrives on the cheapest looking plates I've ever seen with equally as cheap utensils...and oh what small portions we had for the price. While the food was hot it wasn't anything mind blowing. All I kept thinking was, man, I'm so glad I didn't wait 45 minutes for this!!!
Our waitress was super efficient and friendly so that was a plus and she served a great pot of spearmint tea which was the highlight of my meal because the water is infused with something to give it this odd nutty flavor as if regular h2o wasn't enough...not sure what that's all about but I sure wish I could've just had regular ole water. THANK GOD FOR THE TEA!!!
I just didn't get it?!? The building is a hodgepodge of plastic, wood and what not that just wasn't appealing, the menu is limited (at best) and the food was just OK! Honestly, not sure we'd visit again...let alone tell someone to eat here.
Don't believe the hype!!!
