7. Pok Pok NY
Neighborhood: Waterfront District, Brooklyn
Address: 127 Columbia St.
The wings at Pok Pok NY are not your typical Sunday afternoon football wingâ€”they're the best gourmet wings you can find in NYC for a reasonable price. Chef Andy Ricker, who opened the original Pok Pok in Portland, Oregon, in 1995 marinates his famous Ike's Vientamese Fish Sauce Wings in garlic, sugar, and fish sauce before dusting them in a rice flour-tempura mix. They're fried twice then coated in a fish sauch garamel, then finished with more garlic. They're spicy, sweet, wonderfully sticky, and unlike any other wing you've ever had.
