It was Margaret and Eliza’s birthday and we just had to celebrate at the best restaurant in town.
However, Basil in downtown Charleston is a very small restaurant and it gets quite packed. We got there just as they were opening so that we could get a table. Otherwise, who knows how long we would have had to wait.
It. Is. Amazing.
The girls and I ordered the basil rolls (best appetizer), the wonton soup and the pad thai (best entreé) and Ivy ordered the Pad See-Eu (the beef dish above…which was also fabulous).
Fast forward to August.
Last week, my sisters, Margaret and Katie, and I went to the BRAND NEW Basil in Mount Pleasant.
This restaurant is much much bigger than the downtown Charleston location. A necessity with its popularity.
I can and will never get tired of the Pad Thai. Oh. Em. Gee!
So, if you have a chance, next time you’re in Charleston or Mount Pleasant, head over to Basil and try it out. Oh, and they also have a location in Charlotte, North Carolina…which I plan to visit too.
