Basil Thai Restaurant is one of my favorite local spots. So many wonderful dishes to choose from–but only one little belly to fill! Fresh Basil Rolls, the Cashew Nuts Entrees, the Pad See-Eu—all excellent, but today I narrowed my choice down to one of the Chef’s specialties, the Pad Thai. “Aroi mak”—means very delicious! 

Basil’s chef let me watch all the excitement through the prominent glass window.  What fun to see (and hear)  all the fresh ingredients come together.  If you can save room for dessert, you have to try the extraordinary fried green tea ice cream.
