With a fo­cus on Cam­bo­dian and Lao­tian foods, Roku serves Asian-in­spired street food, all of which is snack­able and af­ford­able: kim­chi fries, noo­dle bowls, and pork, seafood, and veg­gie gy­oza can be washed down with lo­cal craft beers or creative cock­tails. 610 Som­er­set St. W., rokubar­bi­tes.com
