The pop-up restaurant that started only two years ago will move into the former home of El Cañonazo Market, which closed at the start of the pandemic. Holy Basil will join six other yet-to-be-announced tenants in a new multi-tenant destination for restaurants and retail named El Cañon. Owners Wedchayan (Deau) Arpapornnopparat and Tongkamal (Joy) Yuon expect to open the new location by mid-summer of 2022, according to Eater LA.

The trio of owners started the company in late 2019 by doing pop-ups on the street. Determined not to let a pandemic stop them, Holy Basil survived by popping up with monthly dinner series events at places like Melody in Virgil Village under the name Yum. Holy Basil made a name for itself from its Downtown takeaway spot, eventually earning Eater LA’s Best New Food Stall award last year.

The new Holy Basil will look similar to its original location at 718 South Los Angeles St., including an area for pickup and takeaway orders. Like the original, the Atwater Village location is expected to offer delivery in a limited radius. Following the same menu as the Downtown location, customers can expect a variety of Thai street food staples with an extra kick to it. Popular items include tom yum soup, pad Thai, and dry-aged salmon.
