Fresh Chinese and Thai Food at Po’s Rice and Spice, East Hampton


We’d heard rumblings of this tasty spot and finally got around to a visit. Excellent service and a vast menu of carefully prepared Chinese and Thai offerings are just the beginning here. We settled into a sunny window seat in the white and wood-dappled dining room one weekday afternoon and the place filled in with locals and others seemingly in the know. We were so sweetly treated to a complimentary serving of fresh popcorn topped with butter and coconut curry powder and hot pot of Oolong tea. The Thai Sampler gave us a chance to try the scratch-made sauces, Mango Cucumber Relish, Peanut Sauce and Duck Sauce made from apricots and apples. We tasted scrumptious shrimp wrapped in super thin egg noodles and perfectly fried, Curry Beef Spring Rolls and Chicken Satay. We opted for a traditional General Tso’s Chicken and gobbled up the fresh veggies and spicy sauce with a pile of brown rice. There is so much to try on this menu from Jenny’s Honey Duck to Chinese style Black Seabass that we plan to return often to make our way through the menu.

Lots of gluten-free and vegetarian options plus take-out and catering for all sizes. Check out their Instagram to see their gorgeous dishes.
