The Guiltless Foodies

We are a gourmand couple who love to discover new places and eat our hearts out. Follow us for a guilt trip along the food road.

A Tribute to TukTastic Thai Cuisine, at Tuk Tuk Thai Bistro.

Sawadeeka!! Traditional greetings of the land of Tuk Tuks right here in our city of Mumbai. Thailand’s culture incorporates a great deal of influence from India. So is their food which is highly influenced from cuisines of India, Persia and Portuguese brought in by the traders and settlers. Thai Food is unique and its flavours are vividly distinct. It gives great importance to primary tastes like Sweet, Sour, Salt and Spice. ‘Tuk Tuk Thai Bistro’ has transformed the way we relish this magnificent cuisine. We literally fell in love with everything at this place. Right from the host to everything post it was indeed a wonderful experience.

Tom Yum Soup

We started off our journey with the ‘Tom Yum Soup’. The most popular and a hot favourite amongst the ones new to Thai cuisine and the ones who have been having it for ages. We are the latter and this was one of the best tom yum we have had. Right amount of sourness blended with perfect sweetness. Thin but not watery and full of healthy veggies.

Watermelon & Cucumber Martini

The baby corn, cherry tomatoes, carrots had the right crunch and the kaffir lime along with lemon grass had a serious blend of tastes which danced on our pallets like crazy. This could well be substituted as a wholesome meal for health freaks.

To rejuvenate, recharge and refresh we had the ‘Watermelon & Cucumber Martini’ a beautifully infused martini with the perfect balance of watermelon and cucumber. Then we had the ‘Virgin Lemongrass Mojito’. Nothing else could have refreshed us on a really hot summer day.

Virgin Lemongrass Mojito

Next up was the ‘Paw Pia Pod’ or in simple terms the Veg Thai Spring Rolls. Glass noodles and shitake mushrooms, tossed in a sweet and sour chilli sauce and stuffed in abundance in spring roll sheets and deep fried to perfection. The crisp outside and the spicy filling was just too perfect to stop at one. One generally doesn’t use glass noodle to stuff a spring roll but this was the twist that these spring rolls boasted of, and indeed was a super hit. It indeed was a great piece of recommendation and we really loved it.

Paw Pia Pod & Thai Extra Spicy Sweet and Sour Wings

The non-vegetarian starter offered was the ‘Thai Extra Spicy Sweet and Sour Wings’. Like the name suggested this dish had soft juicy chunks of chicken tossed in an extra spicy sweet and sour sauce. We were sure that special care was taken to quote each piece so perfectly and in proper measures. Each and every piece devoured had been covered evenly with the saucy mixture. For dishes like this one definitely must forget the niceties of using a cutlery and must just use the 10 magic fingers.

Yam Kahi Do

One of the most unusual but on strong recommendation of our host – Javed, we tried the ‘Yam Kahi Do’ or better known as the Crispy Spicy Egg Salad. Tiny bits of fried eggs (not boiled) tossed in with crunchy veggies, sweet corn in sweet chilli sauce. This was paradise in form of an egg salad. What more could one ask for, healthy, filling and packed with the right amount of all necessary nutrients. Wholesome is the word.

Thai Yellow Curry &  Jasmine Rice

We were then served the relatively popular but the most recommended ‘Thai Yellow Curry’. Very few like to go beyond boundaries and more or less stick to the green curry, but the foodie in us wanted to and we were glad we did! The Thai yellow curry was one of the creamiest one we have had. Very few places boast of preparing the Thai curry paste right from scratch absolutely afresh after it is ordered for. The paste was not a pre done one and the taste proved it all. It was so fresh that we could taste every ingredient. And each ingredient was trying to prove its character with full potential. End result was this beauty!  The veggies were aldanté and a perfect match to the fragrant ‘Jasmine Rice’.

Coconut Chocolate Mousse

Last but not the least from the list of favourites was this another favourite. ‘Coconut Chocolate Mousse’. One has to taste it to realise how heavenly this dessert was. Very light and smooth in texture was this chocolate mousse infused with coconut flavouring. Thai food as such has a lot of coconut cream or coconut milk inclusion in its dishes and this lived up to the Thai culture. Simple to look at but high on taste.

Food is not just about taste, the plating, and presentation and even the use of cutlery proves to be important when it comes to serving a great experience. Tuk Tuk Thai Bistro had it all. Right from the specific cutlery they used to aesthetically plate the tasty food, they didn’t leave one stone unturned.

Must Try !!

-
And for us, 1000 is not just a number. Behind this number is our 2+ years of memories that we have kept alive and mouthwatering through @Instagram and other Social Media. In this journey we have come across different people, some of who have become more of a family now. We have shared ups and downs and most importantly celebrated everything together. -
Though not up to the mark, our posts/ pictures have won us appreciations and many a times, we are sure people have wondered how these clicks happen. Trust us. Though we own a DSLR camera, most of our #foodgasmic 😉 pictures are shot from the Camera on the Instagram app itself. Essentially all you need is good lighting and some focus, we mean real focus with all that food around 😉 like this picture here of the 'Prawn Bacon Rolls & Grilled Chestnuts' served at @swinggoa -
1000 would've been a distant dream without the Love and Support that you ALL have been giving us. Thank you. Each and every one of you. ❤❤
