Blue Basil has been proudly serving the Austin area since 2012. Originally founded by Mr. Triet Hyuyn, whose Asian Fusion blend became an instant Austin hit from his central location at 6th street and Trinity. When rising rents spoiled the party on Trinity, Triet made the difficult decision in 2015 to sell his beloved truck, but found two eager and willing buyers in the truck's current cook at that time, Ms Pranom Chudmaroeng, and her husband William Main.
The food made only a modest shift from its Asian Fusion roots with a Vietnamese twist to a more Thai-centric blend. Blue Basil retains the popular Banh Mi sandwich (discontinued), Triet's perfect marinade process, and some of his very popular sauces. Add to this Pranom's special Pad Thai offerings, her signature Thai Chicken Curry dish, and the crispy-thin Egg Rolls and Thai Teas, and it's been a winning combination!
Pranom and Bill spent 20 years on the tropical Thai island of Phuket where Pranom's culinary talents were enjoyed by patrons of our local restaurant, as well as by family and friends. We came to beautiful Austin in 2011 with our three sons - Jackson, Jordan, and Kevin - and settled in northwest near Westwood High School.
Thanks to our wonderful and faithful customers, we worked to grow our business year after year. With food trucks, direct catering, and in-house "pop-up" kiosks, Blue Basil served corporate Austin well. Of course, as happened with so many others, our world came apart on March 16th 2020. We literally lost over 95% of our business. As the world slowly reawakens in 2021, we look forward to getting back to our earlier successes and expanding on them. We offer our deepest condolences and very best of fortune to all those who have suffered so much over the last year. Keep pushin' on!
