tuk tuk thai

One evening last week I was over at Jake’s and he didn’t want to go out. We were going to order a pizza but then I suggested we try this little Thai place that’s only a few blocks from his house. We’ve passed it about a thousand times already and have always meant to go in but just… never really gave it serious thought before. It looked like a cute little place and I got him to agree (even though I think he really wanted that pizza). The Thai place is called Tuk Tuk Thai and I used Yelp to place a to-go order for us.
