So I went back to Mr Tuk Tuk@The Starling about a week after the feast I had with my brother. Since I was alone, I opted for the set meal.
This is Set Meal 3 (SM3) which consist of white rice, Mixed Vegetables with Cashew Nuts, Thai Basil Chicken and Thai Beef Salad.
The Thai Basil Chicken turns out to be minced chicken and though I could detect the basil aroma, I could not see any of the herb. But from the photo, I realize that they have been chopped into small pieces. Quite a tasty dish though it did not look impressive.
The Thai Beef Salad is dressed with a thick greenish garlicky sauce. I loved it but it gave me very strong garlic breath. Yikes!
It's a very nice salad but if you are on a date or a business lunch, forget it or bring along some breath mints.
The Mixed Vegetables with Cashew Nuts is the usual mixed vegetable dish that one would expect and it was nice enough.
The set meal comes with a drink of the day. That day it was fresh mango. I was afraid that it might be too sweet (from added sugar) bu thankfully it was not. But the mango juice was very diluted. I guess I can't expect much.
The following week I went back again. This time for SM1 which had white rice, Thai Glass Noodle Salad, Fish Cakes and Chicken with Dry Chili and Cashew Nuts.
The Thai Glass Noodle Salad was very nice. Tangy, salty and sweet. And garlicky too hee..hee... And watch out for booby traps - the chili padi which is hot! hot! hot!
Special mention must be made for the Fish Cakes which I thought was very good. The Chicken with Dry Chili and Cashew Nuts however, though tasty, was a bit hard due to the batter.
The free drink that day was Watermelon juice. Not sweet and yes, diluted.
Those were two very decent lunches at a reasonable price of RM18.80 per set.
