Experience Thailand in Thai Basil Boracay.

There’s more beyond the wonderful beaches of Boracay. The island is also a great place for a gastronomic adventure. One of the must-dine restaurants is Thai Basil in D’Mall, Station 2. Opened in 2013, Thai Basil offers traditional Thai dishes used with authentic Thai ingredients and cooked by a Thai chef. From meals to drinks, you will enjoy an authentic experience of Thai cuisine.

The Place

During our visit, we were welcomed by accommodating staffs and a cozy ambiance surrounded by interior decors from Thailand. The place is not big and can only accommodate a few groups of people. Most of the people who dine here are foreigners, based on our observation. Peak hours are from 5pm onwards.

What To Order

In case you can’t decide on what to order, here are our recommended dishes. For soup, you may try Tomyum Goong, a hot and sour soup with shrimp, and Tom Kha Gai, a hot and sour soup with coconut milk and chicken. Both soups are available for single order and sharing. For salad, try the Som Tam which is a green papaya salad. For noodles, of course, everyone’s favorite Thai food, the PadThai. Try their PadThai Goong which is a stir-fried noodle with shrimp.

Fill your tummies with their delicious main course. Our top picks are Pad Ka Pao Moo, a stir-fried minced meat infused in Hot Basil; Gaeng Ped Gai, a red curry in coconut milk with chicken, pineapple and crispy potatoes; and Kai Pad Med Ma-Muang, a stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts, one of their special dishes. You can choose the level of spiciness, we had ours in medium level. All dishes are good for sharing.
To complete the meal, end it with authentic Thai desserts. Try their Khao Neo Ma Muang aka Mango Sticky Rice. You should also try their special dessert, the Kluard Tod. It’s a fried banana with ice cream. It’s like a Thai version of turon. For the drinks, of course, you should try the famous Thai Iced Tea. Thai Basil’s version of Thai Iced Tea has condensed milk which adds a right amount of sweetness in the drink. You should also try their specialty drinks. We had Magical Mango Shake and Elderflower Elixir which are both great.

All in all, the food was great. It is worth the price. I find it affordable compared to other restaurants in Boracay. I haven’t been to Thailand so I couldn’t compare it but I do believe that it’s authentic since they are using ingredients from Thailand and the food is cooked and prepared by a Thai chef.
If you’re looking for a place to dine at in Boracay, visit Thai Basil and experience the authentic Thai cuisine that will surely satisfy your senses. For more details, follow them on Facebook.
