Melbourne’s Basils Black takes rice to unforeseen levels, with options like tom yum fried rice, pineapple fried rice and green curry rice. If you’re in the mood for something comforting and delicious, the Thai street beef noodle soup is a soul-satisfying dish, as is the fragrant minced pork and soft tofu soup made with seaweed, spring onion and fresh coriander. For a hearty meal, we recommend the grilled lamb shoulder or the beef with cashew nuts. End your meal with an order of Thai tea panna cotta or homemade ice cream before heading back out onto South Morang’s Gorge Road.
