Tuk Tuk Crab: Pan Asian Gem Near Chinatown

Updated: May 23, 2019

As you all know now, we are currently in Thailand! A month before our trip, we were on a mission to find the best Thai food in Houston. During this adventure, we found Tuk Tuk Crab!

Tuk Tuk Crab features flavors from all over Asia, including Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam. All dishes are cooked to order, served as shared plates, and are meant to be enjoyed with friends and family. If you've been before, you'll also notice that the menu changes over time. This is because they have a seasonally rotating menu. However, there are two staple dishes that remain year-round - the Curry Crab and the Crab Fried Rice.

The restaurant itself is quite inviting. There is a mural on the right as soon as you walk in and large lettering on the walls to give the vibe that you're enjoying your meal on the streets of Asia. Everything is also centered around a large gathering table to invite your to dine with friends and family. We unfortunately did not come with enough people, but they offer a huge platter meant for 8 people! It looks like such a fun and incredible meal to have with a group!

We tried a good variety of the food, all originally from different parts of Asia. Our favorites were the Curry Crab, Nuoc Mam Wings, and the Lamb & Crackers, but we enjoyed everything and would recommend any of the items below!
