It was an impromptu lunch gathering as we always seems to miss out Yam’s birthday. We gathered at this place called My Elephant.
The place is located in Taman Sri Hartamas and the shop is quite difficult to locate mainly due to it’s tastefully decorated signboard but very small signboard. This is actually their 2nd branch and Yam was telling us that the place is normally full during dinner, which is not surprising and I will tell you that later.
There’s only about 20+ tables in the restaurant, with some very nice deco located on the walls.
The bar area, which housed a lot of Just Juice, Milk and other type of syrups.
The assorted drinks available, from the left Pandan Cooler, Pineapple Cooler and Green Aroma. Cool refreshing drinks for a hot Saturday afternoon.
While waiting for the latecomers, Yam had already ordered an appetizer, myElephant’s Platter (RM22), selection includes Tod Man Plah (homemade deep fried thai fish cakes), PoPiah Tod (deep fried hand-rolled springrolls), Prawn Wanton and Fresh Popiah.
The whole gang while waiting for the food to be served. Thai food has the same concept of Chinese food, you get to order all the dishes and share it with everyone and taken with rice.
Goong Tod Geaow Mung Gorn ~ Deep Fried Prawns with Mayonnaise and Dragon Fruit (RM21) The way it was prepared is very refreshing as the dragon fruit provide a distinctive taste to the dish.
The Gai Tod Gratiam Prik (RM15), a special deep fried chicken strips with kaffir lime leaf, garlic and crushed Thai peppercorn. Crunchy and tasty with the accompanying dip.
Paku or Fern with Sambal Belacan (RM15), an instant hit with the aromatic belacan and best to go with rice.
Gaeng Keow Wan or Thai Green Curry my Elephant sytle (RM23) is another dish that one can easily fall for. The curry is rich and full of coconut flavour and not too spicy too.
One of the famous dishes here at my Elephant is their Roasted Duck. The Geang Phey Yaeng (RM35) is normally high on demand on the diner’s wish list, where roasted duck is cooked with red curry with seasonal fruit. While I didn’t taste the meat, the curry itself is again rich in flavour.
The Steam Tofu (RM15) is special in its own way although I did give it a miss since I can’t eat beans.
Tom Som ~ Clear Galangal Lemongrass Lim Soup with Aromatic Thai Herbs (RM30) is my Elephant’s best selling soup. Despite having a clear and tame look, the soup is packed with herbs and spicy that even May can’t finish it.
The last dish that we ordered is the Plah Nung Manow (RM45) is a steamed fish with my Elephant’s signature lime-garlic, chili padi dressing. The fish is fresh and combining with the dressing, it’s definitely a must try.
Here’s Kayden doing some stretching while waiting for his food.
I would recommend my Elephant as their dishes is really one of a kind. The ambience contemporary and relaxed and it’s a good place to catch up with friends or families.
