On top of University Hill, down a dark alley, wedged next to a bar, and down an unassuming flight of stairs, is appeThaizing. Although the location is not the easiest to get too, with limited parking and the threat of having to fight through mobs of college students to get there, appeThaizing does deliver tasty Thai food.

I have been to the restaurant on a handful of occasions, and am never disappointed, although some dishes overwhelmingly trump other ones. On my most recent visit, a friend and I decided to eat out on a Monday after our classes. We went there for dinner, around 6’oclock, walking down the alley, and then down the stairs that lead down to the restaurant. I am always surprised by how the restaurant fills up despite its humble sign outside, and rather peculiar location.

I had heard of Lemongrass and that it was good from some co-workers older and more elegant than I. However, the thought of paying more than $10 for Asian food made my stomach hurt. Let alone a place that calls itself an ‘Asian Fusion’ steakhouse on its Facebook page makes me think it’s just a little too classy for my barbaric manners.

However, with Downtown Dining Week I decided to go. This event lasts through March and participating restaurants offer a first, second, and third course for $25 or less. Which is a pretty good deal for some of the restaurants on the list, including Lemongrass.

Basil Thai is a small little place tucked back in the corner of 3 Rivers Plaza in Phoenix. Usually lots of parking, unless you get there late and the bar down the plaza is hopping. The location has been a succession of pizza joints in the past, and the seating remains the same – faux wood laminated “uni-booths” plus a couple tables.

There’s seating for approx 20 adults.

The place is owned by Pong and his wife, both of whom work in the kitchen and out on the floor. Most weekend evenings, you’ll find their son and daughter serving and bussing as well. (more…)
