Dining review: Fresh, seasonal fare makes Sacramento’s Thai Basil special
BY BLAIR ANTHONY ROBERTSON
Thai Basil is a very progressive restaurant that manages to hold onto all
of the old-fashioned values that matter. This combination makes this
midtown restaurant, open since 2002, one of the most compelling eateries
of its kind in Sacramento.
It sources ingredients from local farms and
makes all of its sauces and curries from scratch. These days, some call that "slow food," meaning a return to practices that were commonplace in
decades – and centuries – past.
Thai Basil also has a grounding in 21st
century environmental awareness. Its vegetable waste is diverted into
a cooperative compost container via the Green Restaurant Alliance of
Sacramento (GRAS). It is the only Thai restaurant I can think of that has
bicycle delivery. And even more unusual, it has a seasonal menu that
changes according to what's fresh right here, right now.
