Ultra-Veg-Friendly Thai Cuisine just west of ASU
This restaurant was formerly known as The Pink Pepper, and it has as many vegetarian Thai selections as anywhere in town!
Not to mention that this place hardly resembles the former Pink Pepper. The decor has received a significant makeover, transforming a once-ordinary looking place into an upscale venue. (Perfect for starting a romantic night out.)
As for the food, the Veg options include 3 appetizers (Spring rolls, Fried tofu, and Crispy Sweet potato; each $5.50); two Veg soups (Coconut or Bean Thread; each $7.95); and numerous delectable entrees (ranging in price from $6 to $7.50).
For Vegetarians, these entrees include 5 selections from the Vegetarian portion of the menu (4 of which are served with Jasmine rice). there's Pad Thai Tofu, Curry Tofu, Eggplant Tofu, Sweet and Sour Tofu, and Garlic Vegetables.
Thai Basil also has 5 Curry-based entrees, each with a different assortment of vegetables (and your choice of protein) in a curry sauce.
Plus, there's 7 Stir-fried entrees, which are vegetables with your choice of protein in either a garlic or soy sauce.
Then, if that's not enough to choose from, there's rice and noodle plates; with vegetables and your choice of protein (in either garlic sauce, black bean sauce, or soy sauce). Talk about variety!
For dessert, choose from sticky rice (with either Thai custard or fresh mango) or the FBI (fried banana ice cream).
