If you haven’t yet stopped at the Tuk Tuk Thai Food Truck in Volcano, definitely put it on your list of foodie to-do’s. Awarded with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, 5-star guest reviews are continually flowing in for this Big Island food truck. Offering up possibly the most authentic Thai Food in Hawai`i, you’ll be more than pleased when you taste Chef William’s fresh Thai flavors.

In 2013, Tuk Tuk Thai Food Truck was first born in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. After a long journey to the islands, the owner’s dream to touch down in Hawai`i was finally reached, and now all Big Island residents and guests can reap the rewards!

The Tuk Tuk menu is full of locally sourced ingredients; fresh island seafood, locally grown organic produce, and authentic Thai spices. Favorite  menu items include specialties like the Pineapple Curry, Avocado Curry, Stir Fried Basil, Tom Kha Soup (coconut soup), Avocado Summer Rolls, Pad Thai Noodles, Pad Se Ew Noodles, Green Papaya Salad, and the Stir Fried Eggplant. Guests can choose from tofu, chicken and shrimp options, and plates come with white or brown rice. Their Thai Ice Tea is super good, and without a doubt, all will be tempted by the Fried Ice Cream and the Fried Banana Lumpia.

The Tuk Tuk Thai Food Truck can be found Tuesday-Fridays (11am-6pm) at the Cooper Center in Volcano Village. Guests can also call ahead for take out orders at (808) 747-3041. To see the menu, please visit www.tuk-tukthaifood.com.
