You want Thai curry, he wants Pho…is it time to go your separate ways or instead head over to Tuk Cho in Ealing?
Tuk Cho is the latest restaurant to hit the high street, featuring the best of Pan Asian ‘market food’ under one roof. Inspired by his travels head chef Adrian McCormack created a menu serving up the best of: Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Japan, the Philippines and Indonesia. Located in a spacious and warehouse style venue – the décor is fun, lively and eclectic – plus buggy friendly. Perfect for a family dinner or a gathering with friends.
We started our evening with some yummy sai gog starters – tangy meat skewers made with pork, beef and lemongrass, served on sugar cane sticks and accompanied by sweet chilli sauace (£5.50). Followed by a Buns salad from Vietnam (from £7.20) and Pad Krapow – chicken with fried basil from Thailand (£7.70). The spice factor could have been kicked up a level, but this can also be beneficial when eating as a family, as sometimes at certain establishments mild can still be mouth melting. This won’t happen at Tuk Cho – so if you like it hot, make sure to ask for extra chili. Everything was washed down with the Floating Market – a too easy to drink cocktail made of fresh cucumber, gin, apple juice, lemon, mint and shichimi pepper (£ 5.50). Sounds a bit strange, but rest assured very refreshing and delicious – one won’t suffice. The meal was finished with the ever popular banana fritters for dessert (£4.90). Tuk Cho also features a children’s menu – with a nod to Asian flavour of course – no fish fingers here!
The restaurant also host noodle making birthday parties for kids. Rumour has it a second location is slated for Chiswick.
