As close as I can remember it was from a wonderful restaurant in Ashburn Virginia, Burapa Thai, this spicy & pungent dish definitely delivers.
"In a word, fantastic. I have never made such a fast and flavorful meal, everyone loved it! I used regular basil and served it over rice to soak up the savory sauce. Totally would make again, TY!"- Corwin26

ReyV 2 months agoDidn't have all the ingredients, like oyster sauce, which I think would have made a huge difference, but the family loved it all by itself--No rice or noodles.

Firebyrd 4 years agoThai chilies are smokin' hot, feel free to use 2 the first time you make this! I found 3 to be just heated enough for me. Thai basil leaves are sometimes found in ethnic markets, you may substitute fresh basil leaves (I did) [I posted this recipe.]
