when i was in san francisco last year, i had the best thai fried rice. ever since then, i’ve been on a mission to find something as good or to recreate the dish myself. after some trial and error, i found this recipe and it’s not as good, but it’s a damn close substitute. thai basil one of those ingredients that just makes a dish lighter and better. i made this vegetarian style and it was delicious. next time, i definitely intend to add some crab to this great dish.
