This is another of many visits to one of my favorite restaurants, Mr Tuk Tuk@The Starling. It was on an evening a few months ago with my brother.
On this visit, I told my brother that we must try other dishes on the menu that we have not tried yet. Of course we still ordered our favorites which is the Tom Yam Fried Rice....
....and Mango Salad.
I let my brother have the fried rice all to himself because I wanted to avoid carbs. My brother loves fried eggs with fried rice and informed the server to just serve the eggs on the fried rice. But no, the eggs were served separately on two plates.
I was curious about the Fried Kangkung which is battered and deep fried till crispy.
Unfortunately, the deep fried kangkung was not adequately drained so the ones at the bottom were soggy and oily.
The dipping sauce tasted like thick creamy tom yam, which was nice but I prefer to dip the kangkung in chili sauce.
We also ordered the Thai Special Platter, something which I have been wanting to try.
It was quite a nice variety as it had some sort of satay with dipping sauce....
.... and Kai Ping (Thai Honey Chicken). It was very tasty but I found it too sweet.
This platter also comes with a serving of Mango Salad and some Spring Rolls and crackers. We did not care much for the spring rolls and crackers which were just ordinary.
Oh, another dish we ordered was the Thai BBQ Lamb which I found to be tender and very flavorful. The dipping sauce was also very nice.
I do wish that Mr Tuk Tuk would accept credit card payments but I still support this restaurant because the food is good and the prices reasonable. At least the policy is cash only unlike some that accept cards and yet impose a minimum charge.
