The team at naturally fast food brand Leon have announced the launch of a Thai fast food pop-up: Tuk Shop – a joint venture with Bangkok-based food group Aylmer Aaharn.
The restaurant will debut this spring in an existing Leon on Shaftesbury Avenue in London’s Soho.
Working with a team of chefs from Bangkok, Leon has developed every dish on the Tuk Shop menu to combine a love of Thai food with their love of fast food. True to Thai cuisine, Tuk Shop will deliver a host of classics including aromatic curries, noodles, rice dishes and salads, plus some dishes that will be newer to UK guests.
Leon co-founder John Vincent said: “Over the last 15 years I have been fortunate enough to experience the culture and flavours of Thailand first-hand. And fortunate too to meet and learn from David Thompson (founder at Aylmer Aaharn), whose chefs have worked hard to make this happen. I hope that in the long-run Tuk Shop will allow everyone in the UK to experience the joy of this food. In the mean-time you will have to come to Shaftesbury Avenue. Grab a spoon and tuk in.”
