My thoughts on the Atlanta food scene, with occasional forays into the world beyond. We talk about both restaurant reviews and recipes.

Tuk Tuk Thai Food Loft
Hyesoon and I kicked off the workaday part of the new year with a lunch at Tuk Tuk. It's on Peachtree in the shopping center that formerly housed Borders. The third floor location has a great view of midtown that Hyesoon tells me is spectacular at night.
I chose the lunch box special but substituted tofu for beef in the curry. It also came with a chicken dish and a soup. The soup was very subtly flavorful, the highlight of the meal. The curry was also enjoyable. Getting the tofu substituted took a bit of negotiating; they have very few tofu dishes on the menu to my surprise. Service was a little spotty given the aspirations and prices of the restaurant. Overall, I expected to be wowed a little more, but the food was certainly well above par.
