Gone through several websites regarding Thai basils I guessed they call Thai basil (Horapa) as sweet basil too, but the same spice in U.S. called different name like purple basil, Thai basil, Queen Sririgit basil. Sweet basil here the leave is 2-3 times the size of Thai basil the flower is light green only Latinos and Italians love to put in their salad but not Thais. For what it's worth.

Great I just done the first 2 so far, got 75%in the 1st, not good an the curry dishes, and 93% on the 2nd, still readsing the translit, but will take more time next time to read the thai (in net cafe at the mo).
We used to eat the same dish in the courtyard below our condo, just for the fact that it was so tasty muu dhum, not every night of course. One day though we thought we'd get the menu and just point and see what came out.
It was much better than that, the 1st thing we pointed to was yam wum sen and we quickly established that all of that portion of the menu was different yams, the next thing we pointed to was tom yum pla kapong (made using tinned sardines not sea bass but delicious and so cheap and easy) and all of that part of the menu was different tom yums, all the next part was different phads. So quite quckly we had the menu decoded and I wrote in my little book the dishes I liked so I could recognise them in other restaurants, it's worked great, now maybe I should write the ones I don't like so that I don't order them again, but it's a great way of recognising Thai letters and their sounds. Trouble is learning Thai this way is making me fat, one Indian suit maker called me English Buddha the other day when I turned down his offer of a cheap suit!!!

hee hee just a comment for second set....ummm the photo for fried cabbage has too much sauce. I thought it was Gaeng Jaed. And stirred fry pork with curry it looked like moo pad prik to me. That's my opinion though. Actually I didn't know that Moo pad pong Ka ri is a well known dish in Thailand.
They are nice quizs kha.
