You know I love Thai food, right? So when I saw Mr Tuk Tuk@The Starling, I was quite excited.
I did not pay a visit until one of their staff distributed some flyers advertising the opening specials.
Since I was alone, I chose the set meal. If I remember correctly, there are three sets and I chose the one I felt most attractive.
The sets come with a drink of the day.
This is an ice blended green tea drink. It has milk in it, I think. Quite pleasant but I would not choose this if I had a choice. I would prefer plain green tea.
This set looks pretty good doesn't it? It has Pandan Chicken, Thai Mango Salad, Crispy Fish Fillet with Thai Sauce and Rice.
I tasted the rice first and I could not put a finger on what sort of rice this is. It's some sort of fried rice but the flavor was quite unfamiliar.
I detected some pineapple chunks, so I reckon it is pineapple fried rice. It is topped with some sort of dried squid.
The crispy fish fillet was quite nice. The mango kerabu was decent and also topped with dried squid that gave it extra flavor.
The pandan chicken was rather good, moist with good flavors.
As I dug into the rice, I noted that the kitchen did not remove the vein from the prawns.
Some customers might freak out if they see this.
All in all, I find the food decent at best, not outstanding. But I need to sample more to draw a proper conclusion.
