Located on the historic Brooklyn waterfront, Pok Pok NY brings the food of Northern Thailand to New York. With most of its menu items meant to be eaten family-style, Pok Pok NY boasts an impressive array of traditional Thai classics, from Northern and Northeastern Thai dishes like sticky rice to Central and Southern Thai plates like jasmine rice. Other chef specials include Papaya Pok Pok (Central Thai-style spicy green papaya salad with tomatoes, long beans, Thai chile, lime juice, tamarind, fish sauce, garlic, palm sugar, dried shrimp and peanuts) and Yam Suman Phrai (Chiang Mai version of an herbal salad with white turmeric, carrot, parsnip, betel leaf, basil, lime leaf, lemongrass, sawtooth, fried shallots, cashews, peanuts, sesame seeds, dry shrimp, ground pork and Thai chiles in a mild coconut milk dressing). All that and then-some add up to make Pok Pok NY the one to beat when it comes to best Thai in the borough.
