Pho To Dan Dan Noodles: The Folks Behind Cafe Thulp Is Putting Asia In A Box

Sreepathy posted on 17 September

What Makes It Awesome

It's comfort Asian food in sizeable portions and a bill for two costing as little as INR 500. Meaty options aplenty, vegetarians, you will be spoilt for choices too. Start off with the Crispy Rice and Green Plantain Cakes, that's served with a sweet chilli for an extra kick. Don't miss out on the Pho, with the Beef Pho our favourite. Slices of tender meat in that flavourful broth can warm you up come rain or shine. While the Lao Pork Sausages are chef recommended, do try the Ikani Bilis, a salad-like starter with dried anchovies and peanuts adding crunch. If salads are your thing, we recommend the Smoked Beef Salad for anyone likes meat with their veggies. For vegetarians, it's the Papaya Salad. Order the Dan Dan Noodles for mains; it's a meal in itself, but if you are particularly hungry, go ahead and add a stir fry. Like the Slow Cooked Beef Rendang in Coconut Milk or the Singapore Style Chilli Prawns. The Lemongrass Iced Tea with Palm Jaggery to wash down everything.

What Could Be Better?

The flavour of Ikani Bilis can be a little too strong for many. Oh, and if you can't handle spice, some of their options pack quite a punch. But hey, the chef will be more than happy to tone it down for you.
