I LOVE THAI FOOD!!!
Which is why I was thrilled that we had dinner at Basil, a lush and uniquely designed Thai restaurant located near White Plains.
Stepping inside Basil transported me to a tropical resort.. its relaxing vibe made it a perfect place to unwind and catch up with old friends.
We ordered a mix of traditional and not so traditional Thai dishes:
|Fresh Spring Rolls (220php)|
Fresh and light.
|Pomelo Salad (295php)|
I love coconut milk so this was a winner for me.
|Crispy Fish with Green Mango (325php)|
Familiar flavors that hit the spot.
|Pad Thai (325php)|
Not a fan of Pad Thai in general but friends appreciated Basil's version.
|Tom Yum Soup (298php)|
Authentic stock with generous serving of seafood.
|Thai Bagoong Rice (295php)|
I've never had a bad plate of bagoong rice because I just love it so much.
|Fish with Three Flavor Sauce (750php)|
One of Basil's bestsellers. It's crunchy outside and soft inside with sweet, spicy, and sour flavors.
|Lemongrass Steak (495php)|
The only dish I didn't care for. Average steak.
|Pork Ribs with Honey (235php)|
Oh-so-tender! Wished the portion was bigger.
|Creamy Pork Curry (325php)|
Would have preferred if the curry was spicier.
|Coconut Ice Cream (95php)|
Did I mention that I love everything with coconut milk?
|Thai Halo-halo (165php)|
I still prefer the Pinoy version.
|Mango Sticky Rice (130php)|
A Thai meal isn't complete without Mango Sticky Rice.
Happy that I can add Basil to the short list of authentic Thai restaurants here in the Philippines.
