Vietnamese Week, Day 4 (dinner party)

Day 4 was a dinner party with friends. The pork belly and pickled bean sprouts went over a treat, and we made some shrimp on sugarcane (yum) and green papaya salad (turns out I really like cucumber in it) and some Pok Pok wings (holyshitOMGnoms).

The actual wings served at Pok Pok in Portland were better, I will grant, but these have a salty-sweet intensity that punched all my buttons. Everyone involved wound up with wing sauce everywhere and needed a bit of a scrubdown before the main course. Noms.

Also: avocado smoothies. Swoon.
