Thai Basil grows in Central Phoenix
Phoenicians really like to spice things up, and that's not limited to Mexican food.
Witness our insatiable craving for Thai food. Even Gourmet House of Hong Kong, the long-standing Chinese restaurant on McDowell, is pimping the Thai flavors on its menu these days.
Now you can add another Thai Basil to the CenPho mix. The burgeoning local chain -- which has locations in Tempe, Ahwatukee, Chandler, and downtown (if you count Thai Elephant, which is owned by the same family) -- just added another spot, at Park Central Mall, 3110 N. Central Ave.
Open a month now, the restaurant serves lunch and dinner, Monday through Saturday. Business hours are 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. (til 9:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday).
