Pow Pow opened up on Saturday night next to Sol Mexican Grill. Their facebook page says:

“POW-POW is a neighborhood styled fast-casual restaurant located in the heart of the popular H Street, North East corridor of Washington, DC.

Adapting Chinese, Japanese and Korean techniques through corporate American food models, POW-POW creates its version of “New Asian” cuisine. Serving farm fresh Salads, hearty bowls and Egg rolls the size of your arm. Providing a selection of vegetarian and vegan food options, POW POW also tops its menu with a gluten free fried chicken. Using the highest-quality natural-ingredients from local farms when available, POW POW serves its unique version of creative, fun and healthy food in a culture rich environment.

POW POW is the brain child of local musician/restaurateur, Shaun Sharkey and Lavagna’s second year in a row, “DC’s Best Italian Restaurant of the year” owner, Stephen Cheung. While enlisting Sticky Rice creator/owner, John Yamashita and other area chefs to create the menu and brand.”


  • LOL at that bolded sentence. So, if I order an eggroll, and it’s not arm sized, can I send it back?

    “Corporate American food models” …. mmmm, yes…just what comes to mind when I want something *good* to eat.

    Yum, I love corporate American food models! I hope this comes with Pepsi and franchising options!

  • dh

    they probably just mean “chipotle-model” really.

    So, I was initially very excited; then, I saw the menu and was disappointed because I had hoped that the advertised rolls in their initial marketing were sushi rolls and not egg rolls. No such luck. Fast forward to Saturday night, I was hungry and they were open. I tried it and DELICIOUS! :) yum yum yum. I had a Caesar salad with Taiwanese fried chicken (1300 – 1400 blk of H NE probably now has the most Taiwanese fried chicken in the city). Anyway, hubs had something equally delicious but I can’t remember what – something with chicken and a funny looking rice option that was yummy. I will never return to the Korean place on the corner of 14.
