Andy Ricker tells us that once Pok Pok Ny is fully running (it's five nights a week right now, you'll recall), he plans to roll out an outdoor lunch service. The chef-owner mentioned selling food from a cart in the side yard, bringing out a big rotisserie for grilling game hen and the like. He also plans to offer simple fare like khao soi (the curry-broth noodle soup) and papaya salad dishes that won't require disturbing the kitchen as it preps for dinner. Diners will be able to eat outside or inside, most likely purchasing drinks from somebody walking around with a cooler. Might as well start inventing your excuses to take an extra-long lunch break now.
