Updated: Jan 19, 2022

So one of my kids favorite dishes for breakfast and lunch is Thai basil fried with Garlic and any chili’s (well not so much the chili's). Traditionally oyster sauce is used as the gravy and for good reason. It is tasty and goes great with this combo. The fried egg is usually served on top. Cai Dao.
