Choose a good location, create a pleasant casual atmosphere, offer a fair variety of food and beverages at reasonable prices and have easy to remember pun-tastic names; that seems to be the formula for a successful casual diner in Singapore presently. Judging by the well-patronized Tuk Tuk Cha and Love Mee at Suntec City, the formula must be working.

Tuk Tuk Cha is a popular cafe chain offering Thai milk tea, coffee and deserts. “Tuk-Tuks” are of course the iconic colourful three-wheeled taxis of Bangkok. Love Mee sells mee or more precisely la mian (hand-pulled noodles). Its Chinese name is 愛麵子 (ai mian zi) which sounds like love noodles but means “keen on face saving”. All vey punny.

Located in the basement of Suntec City facing the Fountain of Wealth, the Tuk Tuk Cha Love Mee collaborative outlet offers Thai beverages, snacks and desserts as well la mian in various flavours and Chinese side dishes.

Dinner at Tuk Tuk Cha & Love Mee

Recently we were looking for a place to have a quick dinner at Suntec City. The new Tuk Tuk Cha Love Mee outlet attracted our attention.

It is a self-service eatery. Ordering is done at the cashier counter of Tuk Tuk Cha. We ordered a Value Meal comprising Tomato Egg La Mian, a side dish of dou miao vegetable with pork strips and a Thai Milk Tea and ($10.90). We also ordered the Tom Yam Toast with Chix Floss & Egg ($4) and Sticky Rice Mango ($6.80).

The Thai Milk Tea was delicious and we liked the fact that Tuk Tuk Cha allowed us to specified the sugar level.

The Tomato Egg La Mian and dou miao were both not bad but not something we would go out of our way to eat. Perhaps a more traditional bowl of beef la main or wanton la mian might have been a better choice.

Pork Floss Toast at Tuk Tuk Cha

The Tom Yam Toast with Chix Floss & Egg was a simple but enjoyable dish. It was quite spicy but we liked the nice combination of textures and flavours.

Mango Sticky Rice at Tuk Tuk Cha

The Sticky Rice Mango would be a good reason to eat at Tuk Tuk Cha. It looked interesting and the sticky rice was very nice. The steamed pandan flavoured rice had the right degree of stickiness and the coconut cream made the rice even more delicious.

Good Dessert and Tea

Overall, we enjoyed the tea and sticky rice mango of Tuk Tuk Cha. The la mian of Love Mee we tried was quite average. We would think of it as something to fill the tummy rather than to please the palate. So if we were asked at Tuk Tuk Cha Love Mee “Dessert, Tea or Mee?”, we probably would not choose mee. Of course, it might have been a case of us choosing the wrong dish of la mian – maybe we should say to the folks of Love Mee – “it’s not you, it’s me”.
