We went to Sandpoint, Idaho for their 50’s carshow and by the time we drove into town, I was starving! We scoped out the location of the carshow, parked and decided to walk around trying to find some food. We just walked right into Beet and Basil, and I was really unsure if this was where I wanted to eat… but I needed to eat!
I didn’t know what to order, so I decided I would order their Chicken Ramen, I know, I know.. but it was kind of the only thing that interested me on the menu! This was a very interesting take on a ramen, as it wasn’t actual ramen noodles. The used an egg noodle which was a neat take on the noodle soup! It was full of vegetables and flavour. The broth and toppings was delicious.
My hubby knew he wanted to order something with Potatoes, and was wanting Idaho potatoes, so he ordered Lomo Saltado, a stirfry of top sirloin beef with shishito and bell peppers, heirloom tomatoes, and crispy fingerling potatoes in a spicy aji amarillo sauce. This was actually really good! The sirloin was super tender and delicious and everything in the sauce made it absolutely amazing!
Overall, we really enjoyed our time here. We got changed into our 50’s gear from here and walked out and no one blinked an eye at us. Others must do that here as it almost felt like it was normal!
