The collapse of the Soviet Union followed by the Rose Revolution later in 2003 opened up our borders and gave us access to the world’s beautiful diversity. Once unimaginable or too exotic later became our everyday life.
As was the case with Asian cuisine.
As a kid, I remember only one Chinese restaurant in Tbilisi, which I had seen only from afar (cause… prices…). It was unusual, lavish, colorful, extravagant and glamorous at the same time. I had only heard about their outlandish menu, and dreamed of going there at least once in my lifetime. Even the traditional red lanterns hanging outside were setting my heart on fire.
Fast forward 15 years and here we have not only my childhood dream fulfilled but actually having my favorite Asian nourishment spot (ah, progress! – I love you).
While the world knows Tuk Tuk as an auto-rickshaw – a vehicle used in Thailand – I know Tuk Tuk as one of the best Thai Restaurants in Tbilisi. The convenient location, the snug and welcoming atmosphere, the assortment of Asian goodnesses, from soups and noodles to spring rolls and sushi cooked by the real masters are enough reasons for you to have a look.
