I forgot how much I love Thai food until I set foot inside Tuk Tuk. Been hearing lots of good feedback about it a few months ago but seriously, Saigon has many terrific restaurant choices that you just can’t choose!

So during Tet Eve, I browsed through the list of open restaurants and luckily, Tuk Tuk was open till 9 PM. I called them up and reserved a table for our small family.

We ordered the Yam Pla Duk Foo (Fluffy fried catfish with spicy mango salad), Peek Gai Thord Ta Krai (deep fried chicken wings with lemongrass), Khao Pad Tom Yam (Tom yam fried rice with prawns & mushroom), Pad Thai, and the Tom Yam.

The verdict? The food is really, really good. Tastes like authentic Thai cuisine and not pricey. This is my new favorite Thai restaurant in Saigon! 🙂
