Soon to be très Bangkok.

If you joined us in staging a chicken-wing-fest wake this weekend for the now-shuttered Pok Pok Wing, here’s some news to cheer things up. We’ve gotten our hands on the menu for Pok Pok Phat Thai, which opens in the space on Friday. As expected, there’s authentic-style pad Thai with pork, shrimp, or veggies only, plus the option to order it haw khai style, wrapped in a thin omelet. Also on offer is Khuatiaw Khua Kai, a wide-rice-noodle dish you find in Bangkok’s Chinatown, stir-fried with chicken, duck egg, cuttlefish, and green onions. And another Bangkok street snack — a “broken” crepe made with mussels, eggs, garlic chives, and bean sprouts. Depending how you count, that’s about six dishes, which is twice as many as Wing served, so no more sniffles.
