phat kra-phrao (ผัดกะเพรา) is the first three words I will never forget each time when I landed in Bangkok. It means spicy basil dish that no one should miss.
I ventured into Thailand many years ago to look for inspirational art. Though art and artisans came in all forms of creativity but what ended with me eventually was phat kra-phrao moo khai dao. This spicy Thai dish has become the cult over powering my craze for art.
Well, as they said, "What that has become of you depends on what you eat."
