Spicy Basil Fried Rice

Pho MdR, located in the bustling culinary hub of West Los Angeles, presents its Spicy Basil Fried Rice, a dish that encapsulates the vibrant flavors of Thai cuisine. Crafted with aromatic jasmine rice, this dish forms the perfect canvas for a medley of robust ingredients. Garlic and chili paste are sautéed to release their pungent aromas, creating a base that's both spicy and fragrant. The rice is then stir-fried in this flavorful mixture, absorbing the intense flavors and gaining a slightly smoky essence.

Red bell peppers and white onions are added for a sweet crunch, contrasting beautifully with the spicy base. Sweet Thai basil, known for its unique peppery, anise-like flavor, is generously tossed in, lending the dish a fresh, herbaceous lift that is distinctly Thai. The fried rice is then expertly seasoned with a house-made stir fry sauce and sweet black soy sauce, adding layers of umami and sweetness to the dish.

Served with a side of crisp cucumber slices, Pho MdR's Spicy Basil Fried Rice is a boldly flavored, aromatic delight that offers no vegan or gluten-free options, staying true to its authentic preparation. This dish is a celebration of Thai flavors, bringing a piece of Southeast Asian culinary artistry to West Los Angeles.
