Basilisk Editor’s Pick
Pub Grub, Vegan
Basilisk is the much-improved fried chicken concept that replaced Vietnamese grab-n’-go spot Rua. The fried chicken here is dynamite (both in sandwich form, and as a plate), with a heavily heavy-battered, crackle-crisp crust that yields to tender dark meat. It’s a little greasy, but totally worth it in a KFC bucket kind of way. In moderation, we can even get behind the dirty Dan Dan fries, sticky with peanut-chile oil and blanketed in cilantro. But Kool-Aid soft-serve might be jumping the shark.
