Friday nite out @ Bangsar.
The view from our window seat.
I allowed my stomach to rest for a few days after loading it with spicy curry and rendang during CNY. Till last Friday, I had a hankering for spicy food again so we dropped by Bangsar and look for the hottie (chilli of course).
Basil-Thai Nudle Bar is owned by SEA Cuisine Group of Restaurants. Interesting enough, SEA Cuisine owns over 9 thai restaurants in Malaysia but each restaurant has different name, menu and pricing. Here are some of the thai restaurants: Amarin Heavenly Thai @ Mid Valley, Siam Square @ Berjaya Time Square, Bangkok Jazz & To dine for @ Chulan Square and Bangkok Jam @ Plaza Low Yat.
So far I have visited Amarin and the food was quite good, so I decided to drop by Basil for my bowl of tomyam.
Thai Fish Cakes (RM7.90) as starter, tasted OK, luv the garlic + lime chilli sauce.
Waaa...my Fire Hotpot Seafood Tomyam Soup (RM18.90), came with burning flame and drooling spicy soup, loaded with squids, prawns, mushrooms and fish fillets.
My long lost fren from Singapore--Black Olive Fried Rice (RM12.90). I got hooked with this luscious rice when I took the first bite in a thai restaurant @ Singapore. Hmm...but our comment on this plate of 'oily and not so tasty black olive fried rice' is-- 'not worth the price'. Should have ordered white rice (Rm2.50 per pax *unlimited supply*) to go with my flamming tomyam.
I ordered Kailan with salted fish (RM9.90) and guess what we got on our dining table? Message to Mr. Cook from Basil who can't identify green veges: this is 'choi dam', not kailan la.
To sum up, the food is OK, affordable and the ambience is good. We were seated at a secluded corner--the perfect seat for food bloggers to snap pics of the food without attracting unwanted attention from other patrons ^_^
