The team at naturally fast food brand LEON have announced the launch of a new 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.
Tuk Shop marries LEON’s mission to make it easier for everyone to eat well, and Aylmer Aaharn’s commitment to share true Thai cuisine and culture.
LEON Co-Founder John Vincent said;
“Over the last fifteen 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.”
