Classic Thai style basil chicken, stir fried chicken with lots of basil and Thai pepper, ginger rice and a sunny side egg. I like that when I ordered I got a big smile and a "great choice". While most of Houston's trucks are serving great food, few seem very enthusiastic about it. Nice also I was given a choice about how runny I wanted the egg. You get to pick the heat level, I choose medium and in true Thai style it lit me up. Thai heat doesn't linger though and the heat shortly was a pleasant memory. There was enough basil in this to qualify as a vegetable. I think rice is always under-rated, but don't short change this ginger rice, its as much a star here as the spicy chicken. The egg adds a richness to the whole dish. Synopsis: As good a version of the Thai classic as I've had in an sit-down restaurant.
