    I thought small towns were supposed to be safer.

    A guy who worked here for a short while was found dead the other night.

    Small towns in Oregon are definitely not safer. PDX, Eugene and so forth are, but that's about it.

    Pok Pok is pretty good, depending on what you order. Beast and Nostrana are much better, overall. Nothing beats Pok Pok's wild boar collar though!

    He was here in nz doing a one off dinner but I was working and unable to go, we do similar food as Ricker, although his is more street food/family food, ours is a little more fusion.

    Ah, very cool. One thing I like very much at Pok Pok is Jin Hoom -- very nice rustic feel, especially with the hot coal and ceramic soup pot. Bold spices but not overwhelming.

    Small towns on the border around here are nightmares. I would say that's only true in certain situations.

    Only place I know where a discussion about murder morphs into a restaurant review.

    (And I like it that way. )

    Cities are usually safer than rural areas, it just doesn't seem that way because they're so much more concentrated. Murder and crime rates are lower per capita though.

    Pok Pok is great! All the food I tried was excellent and I really liked their fermented vinegar drinks too.
