Tuk Tuk Cha: Gotta love the Mango Sticky Rice!

Sunday, 5 July 2015

Ever sat on a Tuk Tuk (auto-rickshaw) in Thailand? Nope?


Well, there's one now in Singapore, at Suntec City. Introducing the new Tuk Tuk Cha, a little cafe that officially opened yesterday, on 4 July. Honestly, they also don't need a signboard, because their cafe is so distinct, what with a huge Tuk Tuk parked right there. 
When I got there today, queues were already long, just to get a taste of Thailand. They cleverly designed their cafe (with such limited space) with the Tuk Tuk spanning out to be a longer table for those who wants to dine-in.

Let's Eat!

Thai Iced Milk Tea ($2.80 for the cold version (regular sized))
Smooth, but not smooth enough. I asked for less ice and sweetness (by right, this reduction should be well balanced so as not to undermine the flavour) but anyway, they still did give me too much ice and made the tea less sweet. I did like it but felt that maybe the tea could be better in its full on flavour.

Tom Yum Toast with additional Chicken Floss ($2.50)
I chose mine with Chicken Floss. Unfortunately, the taste of the chicken floss was buried under the spiciness of the chilli sandwich, which also didn't have any Tom Yum taste. I regretted not ordering the Golden Toast instead. :(

Mango Sticky Rice ($6)
I love this. The sticky rice was so good, mushiness was at the right level, together with the right amount of slightly thick, coconut milk given. The mango slices were big too. Would totally come back for this again. 


Low-Down
The best bit: Mango sticky rice!

The worse bit: Tom Yum Toast, which was more chilli and no tom yam taste at all.
