i've always liked the idea of a juice fast and it sounds like a good plan to detox and refresh. since juice cleanses seemed to be at the peak of their popularity, i thought it would be a good time to try it out. i researched quite a few brands, and i think i settled on pressed juicery because they had free shipping and let's be honest, these kits can get a little pricey.
this place will always remain one of my very favorites. basil sushi bar in williston, nd.
the oil boomtown doesn't have much in the way of good restaurants, so i was more than excited when this place not only served edible food, the staff and service are amazing.
in the fall of 2014, i was managing a big hotel up in north dakota and i would visit regularly with my assistant. and my michael, when he was in town!
we always got basically the same thing.
the sesame chicken lunch. it's one of the best best things on the menu. when my then-boyfriend/now-husband and i would visit, he would get the mongolian beef and loved it. we ordered sushi to go occasionally and had lunch in my office. we also regularly ordered just the fried rice, because it's phenomenal.
the staff here is very professional and friendly. they knew me by name because i paid every time. (they saw my credit card a lot!) after a few trips in, they met us at our table with our memorized drink order. they didn't even give us menus because we stuck to "the usual".
i'm not sure that i recommend eating mass amounts of chinese food regularly.
i also don't recommend working 14-16 hour days where your only peace and quiet was the inside of this restaurant. but i absolutely recommend building relationships with local businesses. these people are great. i'm very grateful to have had such a positive experience with them. if you are ever in north dakota, it is totally worth stopping by. i'm now living in chicago and i look forward to making these same connections here with the locals. =)
