Just a Tuk Tuk Ride Away - Perth

Far from being a domestic goddess, Mr. T can expect to spend more money eating out than buying groceries from now on. Luckily for us, new places are always cropping up in Perth. One under-the-radar place that is relatively new is Tuk Tuk @Cafe in Highgate. Those familiar to Sparrow Indonesian Restaurant may have seen Tuk Tuk as it is right across the street.

As the name suggests, it is a Thai food restaurant. We visited this place on its second day of opening and we were very curious as to their quality and authenticity.

Prawn Pad Thai ($17)

Red Curry ($17)

Plad Rad Khing ($20)

Gai Leum Hom ($18)

Beef Stir Fry ($17)

Above were the dishes we ordered and shared amongst six people. Everyone thought the flavours were authentic. We really enjoyed the pad thai and plad rad khing fish dishes. We loved the charring on the prawns of the pad thai, we only wished the portion was bigger. The plad rad khing was also tasty and the fish was still crispy even with the sauce smothering it! The red curry was also very thick, creamy and delicious, we did choose the beef curry, I think it would've been even better with prawn or chicken. The beef stir fry was a little bit of a let down, it was nice but, nothing special. Everyone also loved the chicken dish (gai leum lom), it was the perfect level of spiciness and sweetness and the chicken was nicely cooked!

In the end, it was a pleasant meal. We liked the flavours, but we did think for the price the portion was a bit small.
