Thank you for watching!

Thai basil chicken (pad kra pao gai) is a dish in Thailand that you can order just about anywhere you go.

It’s easy to make and nearly always tastes good. When Thais have no idea what to order at a restaurant, pad kra pao is something to fall back on.

In this video I went to a local Thai street food vendor in Bangkok and ordered a little to-go foam box of chicken stir fried with holy basil over rice with a fried egg on the side.

Like many of the dishes worth traveling for, it’s the simple fresh ingredients that make it so good.
