Tuk Tuk Cha – For Thai Milk Tea & Shibuya Toast

Since back from our Bangkok holiday, I’ve been lamenting to the husband about the lack of street food vendors and good cha yen in Singapore. Really miss that week of non-stop eating, lol. We stayed right in the heart of Pratunam and we would be greeted (day & night) with a whole busy street of different eats the moment we stepped out of our hotel which included a delicious sticky mango rice at our doorstep as well as a drink kiosk that served up wonderfully concocted Thai milk teas. Oooh.

Tuk Tuk Cha

Anyway, the husband and I were shopping at Junction 8 when we stumbled upon Tuk Tuk Cha which we had came across several of its outlets islandwide but we still hadn’t try it so we made sure we kept space for an after-dinner dessert treat before leaving Bishan.

Tuk Tuk Cha

For both takeaways and dining-in, you’d need to place your orders here, make payment and then pick up your food/drinks later. Self-service, basically.

Tuk Tuk Cha

The iconic tuk-tuk which is a great and inexpensive way to get around Bangkok city if you don’t mind the pollution. Just reminded us of our last tuk-tuk adventure where we were driven to some back valley as the driver tried to be funny. Anyway, I shall share more when my Thai travel posts are ready to be rolled out. Not now.

Tuk Tuk Cha menu

A quick look at the menu which includes a variety of drinks, noodles, toasts, waffles and ice cream. This place is pretty much a quick service Thai cafe that offers a bit of everything that’s popular in Bangkok right now.

Tuk Tuk Cha

We shared a Thai Green Milk Tea (S$3 for regular, S$3.50 for large) which had distinctive robust flavours of green tea and milk. It wasn’t very sweet or cloying. In fact, I thought the tea flavour tasted quite close to the one from Cha Tra Mue in Bangkok. Pretty refreshing. I have to try the regular Thai Milk Tea next time.

Tuk Tuk Cha

Really loved this Golden Toast + Thai Tea Kaya (S$4.20). The toast was pre-cut to bite-sized cubes for easy consumption. Each cube was crispy and buttery on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. So good on their own that the dip wasn’t even needed but the Thai Tea Kaya was rich and fragrant just like a thick, concentrated Thai Tea custard so it wasn’t too bad too.

Tuk Tuk Cha

The Sticky Rice Mango (S$6.80) wasn’t the best we had but it was still decent enough. I liked the consistency of the glutinous rice but it was a pity, the mango wasn’t sweet enough. Would have been better if there was some crunch to lift the texture such as adding crispy mung beans.

Overall, prices were quite reasonable. I will definitely be back for more Thai teas and toast. 👍🏼

    We had a very bad experience at the Suntec City outlet recently, order their golden toast with taro dip, when served the bread were sticked with small particles of the green color washing sponge, not 1 but 4 pieces of toasts. When we ask the staffs, they checked & admit that it’s from the washing sponge, but just saying don’t know why sticked onto the bread. So will the bread contains detergents too?
