OMG my daughter and I and two of her bridesmaids went to lunch today at a new Thai restaurant, Sweet Basil, and WOW was it great. I had what they called Lucky Ginger, it was chicken breast with several different wild mushrooms, scallions all in a spicy gingery sauce with another seasoning I could not figure out, and Jasmine rice in the shape of a star with black rice on top and then more rice in the shape of a quarter moon, all garnished with a basil leaf and artistic floral appearing carrot. I ate the whole thing. That place is on our list. Now I have to try to dupicalte the recipe for home use. I have a Thai cookbook but I doubt that recipe would be in it.

We're coming up on lunchtime now. I was going to cook some fried rice, for some unknown reason I now feel totally NOT hungry.

Probably just make some inside out sandwiches (fry toasted cheese). :oops:

Not hungry because nothing sounds this good or this really sounded bad.

EDIT BY NORGE: the best part of the meal was that lunch is only $6.25

Sounds brilliant!

Sorta makes you feel inadequate.

The price is incredible, almost robbery. On conversion, that's about $10 our money & comparable meals here are priced about double that.
