Safely tucked in an industrial building, Tuckshop
is a place where you wouldn't really go to unless you knew that it existed. If you are thinking old-school tuckshop, then you can't be more wrong.
There are furniture samples in the shop. If you are interested, you could buy them or ask to get a new piece done for you.
I ordered Fish and Chips
($10.90). Personally, I felt that the portions were a little small. But that might be because I'm a big eater. The fish and chips does not taste greasy and is exceptionally smooth inside. Glad they provided salad greens instead of the standard coleslaw as well.
My friend ordered Four Cheese Sandwich
($7.80). I didn't try it but according to him, it tasted pretty good.
To round of the meal, we decided to go for an Apple Crumble
($6.90). My idea of a good apple crumble is where the inside is gooey and filled with chunky apples and yet not too sweet, and lastly topped off with lots of crumbs. This particular apple crumble (besides it being rather small) satisfied the gooey and not too sweet criteria but did not impress me with the crumbles.
Overall, this is a cool hangout place with nice music. Familiar tunes from the Beatles or Frank Sinatra were played. Friendly servers. Pity they don't serve water. Food is pretty good, except that I felt that the portions were too small.
