After getting his traditional monk blessing, Pok Pok emperor Andy Ricker opened Whiskey Soda Lounge, which is just across the street from Pok Pok Ny in Brooklyn, which is intended to be a place to cool your heels while you wait for a table at Pok Pok Ny. But the spot's full menu has more than enough food to make Whiskey Soda a viable main-event-for-the-night option. There are bar snacks like roasted peanuts with lime leaf garlic, and chiles; and shrimp chips or deep-fried anchovies with Ricker-approved Shark brand sriracha. There's also a whole list of larger dishes such as grilled flank steak "with a little bit of salt and MSG"; stir-fried clams with pork stock and galangal; and, of course, the famous Ike's Vietnamese Fish Sauce wings. As for drinks, there are lots of 'em and they're all the favorites you'd expect: The Tamarind whiskey sour, plenty of drinking vinegar, and the kaffir-infused gin and tonic. There is also as you might guess from the name a full whiskey list, focusing on bourbon with a few Scotches and Irish whiskeys, too.
