Missoula’s Thom Pak: The King of Dim Sum

At the River Wok Asian Grill on Broadway in Missoula, there’s one guy doing everything. Thom Pak created the menu, takes your order, cooks your food, serves it, cashes you out. Pak describes his restaurant as a “hole in the wall,” but it’s at this hole in the wall you’ll find the most amazing dim sum Montana has to offer.¬†Little dragon bao, lotus leaf wraps, satay, BBQ pork buns. This is the food his mom and his grandma made in Hong Kong. Sort of. Thom’s learned a lot about the science of cooking. And when he’s at the wok, everything is cooked to order. So go and find him and tell him Jule sent you.
