In food haven Malaysia, we really don’t have to book a flight to taste authentic Thai food in Silom Road, in fact, it is just a car ride away to Sunway Pyramid to pay a visit to Mr Tuk Tuk, the newly opened restaurant serving more than 50 types of authentic Thai street food. I used to seriously fly to Bangkok just to eat the street food, the shrimp omelette, mango salad, Thai fried noodles and more, so this is superb good news for me that Mr Tuk Tuk is so near and affordable.
Mr Tuk Tuk is located just opposite Cold Storage, so it’s rather easy to find.
The restaurant makes you feel like you are actually eating in a hawker store in Silom Road, but of course, it is a lot more comfortable.
All kinds of Thai food and specialty drinks as well as desserts can be found in this one restaurant alone!
As a lover of green tea, I started with a big cup of Thai Iced Green Tea @ RM7.80
There are so many types of drinks, with Thai Ice Blended Coffee and Thai Ice Tea as well as thick and creamy Fresh Banana Mango Juice! I really must go back to try more of the drinks alone.
The complete menu of all the available dishes.
Tom Yam Fried Rice @ RM8.80 is really delicious without being too spicy, the dish portion is also huge so great for sharing too.
Thai Special Platter P2 @ RM23.80 (Spring Rolls, Thai Satay, Honey Chicken & Kerabu Mango) is perfect for diners who want to taste a little of everything. I must say, Thai Satay is pretty big and full of meat that is soft and sweet. Honey Chicken on skewers or known as Kai Ping is also really sweet and fragrant.
Oh my, Tom Yam is a must when eating Thai Street food, here we tried the Seafood Tom Yam soup @ RM11.80 which surprisingly is not as spicy. I think that is good so that everyone of every taste bud can enjoy the taste of the food, while those that want it more spicy can add their own spices available on every table.
I also love the Thai Pomelo Salad @ RM11.80 packed with sweet, sour, and salty flavourings which consisted of what seemed like a whole pomelo with shrimps, cilantro leaves, peanuts, fried shallots, dry coconut and lime juice. I was told to mix and toss everything together, somewhat like yee sang and the salad just tasted really refreshing for me!
Mr Tuk Tuk also serves four types of Set Menu, and this one is SM2 @RM17.80 with Pandan chicken, Thai Mango Salad, Crispy Fish Fillet with Thai Sauce and Rice. All set meals come with a drink too so it’s quite a value here.
Fried Glass Noodles @ RM8.80 is one of my ultimate fav here as I love glass noodles a lot. Served with big prawns and covered with egg, I could order this again and again.
We also savoured the Tom Yam Fried Chicken Wings @ RM8.80 which is really crispy on the outside and soft and hot inside.
Besides snacking on wings, we could also snack on this Fried Kangkung @ RM9.80, really crispy and really reminded me of how my mum used to fry vegetable leaves when I was young.
The more raw food the better, here’s another dish for those into vegetables that are raw. Lab Kai @ RM9.80 We eat this by wrapping the spicy ground chicken with the lettuce leaves and add the coriander leaves and cucumber too.
No worries if you just love meat, you can always try the Thai BBQ Lamb @ RM11.80 and eat it with the hot chili sauce.
There are quite a lot of traditional Thai dessert available here, such as the Taco (3 pieces) @ RM6.90 a sweet Thai pudding with crispy water chestnut inside served cold. There are two layers, with the top being creamy coconut and the bottom being soft and sticky.
The Mango Sticky Rice @ RM7.90 is always my fav Thai dessert as I love dessert, I only wish they serve this in bigger portions like what I had eaten in Thailand before, with nearly a whole mango in it. I would usually just eat this as my main dish if it was that big though.
Another sweet dessert soup is the Water Chestnut (Red Ruby) in Coconut Cream @RM6.90 topped with sliced jackfruit. At this point I was really filled with food else I would gobble this dessert down easily.
Finally, I tried these 3 very very special ice cream!
These are Thai Fried Ice Cream Tom Yam, Green Curry and Thai Ice Tea Ice Cream (RM6.90 NP)! They are available for only RM1 with any meal order of rice, noodle or set meal until June 30 only, so if you want to taste some really authentic Thai Ice Cream, this is the perfect time for it!
Thanks to Mr Tuk Tuk for having me, I totally enjoyed the dishes that brought me back to memories being on Thailand streets!
