There’s a relatively new Thai street food cart on West 50th St just west of 6th Ave called Tuk Tuk Boy. A tuk tuk is a 3 wheeled vehicle popular in Southeast Asia. The cart first appeared late last year and didn’t have much of a crowd, but judging from my visit last week, they seem to be catching on.
Tuk Tuk Boy has a Thai menu including pad thai, chicken basil, Thai bbq and red & green curries. You can see their regular menu with prices here, but I often advise checking out the Daily Specials for several reasons.
With a Daily Special, you usually get something fresh with main ingredients that haven’t been in a refrigerator for a few days. It’s also a way for vendors to show off a special dish of theirs.
The Daily Special during my visit was massaman curry, which I’ve enjoyed at Thai restaurants. This one cost $8 and while I was waiting for it to be cooked, it became apparent this was a good decision.
