One of the Best Things I’ve Ever Eaten: Wings @ Pok Pok LA

With locations in New York, Portland and now Los Angeles, Pok Pok seems to have taken the foodie marketplace by storm. Their infamous wings are finger-licking good. Manners go out the door when eating these.

I am a bit sensitive to overly spicy foods, so I tried the non-spicy wings. Absolutely delicious. There’s definitely some sort of fish sauce and soy sauce mix in the marinade and it blows all other wings out of the park. I’m dying to know the recipe.

Their LA location is located in Chinatown. I recommend their version of a whiskey sour and mind the spiciness when you see any peppers!

Birch – Hollywood, CA

It’s been a long while since I had a meal at a new restaurant and was blown away. That day finally came when I tried Birch during DineLA. First off, the deal was incredible, whether or not the food was good. 3 entrees + a cocktail or glass of wine for $39. I easily would’ve done this if it were $49 or even $59, as DineLA menus rarely include wine or cocktails.

Highlights: anything with Curry, Chicken Live & Fois Gras, Salmon, and cocktails (I ordered the #7, not pictured.)
