Blind Tasting of SE Asian flavors with chef Nong of Nong's Khao Man Gai

Please RSVP only after you buy the ticket!


Ecotrust and Edible Portland are bringing back Blind-Tasting Bingo, a game of sensory deprivation and heightened exploration, featuring six of Portland's brilliant women chefs.

In the game of Blind-Tasting Bingo, a chef presents players with 15 distinct bites that players taste with their eyes covered, seeking to identify the items on a non-traditional bingo board that includes both correct and false options. A few lucky winners take home a bottle of local booze!

Masterful Thai chef Nong Poonsukwattana (Nong's Khao Man Gai) is kicking off the six-month Blind-Tasting Bingo series with thoughtfully composed bites true to her Southeast Asian roots. Poonsukwattana has built a local cult following and received national press for her one-dish carts, featuring khao man gai, a soulful chicken and rice dish. Asked about her bingo night, she tells players, "Stay passionate, stay hungry. Come with me for an Asian spice adventure. You will love it!" With all she's been able to create with one dish, we can't wait to taste Nong's flavor tour of SE Asia off the beaten path!

Alongside the games, local beverage artisan Merit Badge Co. will be onsite to provide a cash bar of creative libations that complement Nong's creations.


Cost: $40/per person  (plus $3.19 fee).

Please buy the ticket at the link below.
*advance reservations required, very limited seating
Unfortunately, special dietary requests will not be accommodated.

Even though the event is prepaid, drink and gratuities are not included.  Please plan to bring at least $10 in cash for tips.

    It was definitely a lot of fun. I signed up for another one (Naomi Pomeroy of Beast). Oh, and winning a bottle of vodka and Nong's sauce wasn't too bad either. :-)

    I love it! The experience was amazing. The food variety is great and you never know what's next. Three of us won Portland 88 vodka bottles.
