Diminutive neighbourhood café and takeaway serving up firm Thai favourites.
The interior of Partick’s central Thai café is a patchwork of Eastern and Western artefacts – an odd conical straw hat, a stack of books, and cooking utensils passing off for décor. A counterbalance to this charming hap-hazardness, BKK Café’s menu is soberly straightforward, sticking to Thai specialities that have withstood the test of time. From the quartet of appetisers, the spring rolls stand out as generously sized, albeit heavy on the vermicelli. The set of soups include the universally loved tom yum and an electrifying tom kha. From the mains, there is a sprinkling of noodles, curries and stir-fried dishes. The good old pad Thai is up to the standard, and served in a size rewarding for those of mammoth appetites. BBK’s signature curry is a lambent combination of tomato, peppers and pineapple with a distinctly strong coconut aroma. With such a succinct portfolio of Thai staples, BKK is a reminder that even in a city brimming with trailblazing culinary innovators, there is a place for the comforting classics.
