Despite being the go-to place of white-collar workers, this is not your usual city canteen. A place where the smell of spices and coffee fills the air. Where water is served in silver goblets. Where flamingo pink tables sit against a stainless steal backdrop. A modern twist on authentic Thai street food.
Pok Pok was created to bring Thai street food from Bangkok to the streets of Melbourne. "Pok Pok" is a Thai term to describe the sound of a pestle gently thumping spices in a granite mortar - a common background noise in the street eateries of Bangkok and throughout South-East Asia.
The menu is constantly evolving and reads like a culinary tour of Thailand, ranging from dishes influenced by the north, northeast, middle and south of Bangkok. Everyday, the team at Pok Pok strive to deliver authentic street food to their customers, using only the freshest, premium quality ingredients sourced locally.
