Belated B'day Celebrations @ My Elephant, Section 17

Happy 20-10-2010!!!!

This post is late by 2 months... My friends and I had a belated birthday celebration for some of us who had our b'days in June and July.

A friend recommended a Thai restaurant, "My Elephant" which is situated in Section 17, PJ for lunch. She is pretty much a regular there and so, was able to navigate us around the menu of yummy Thai food.

Fizzy Sour Lime

We decided to order a number of signature dishes such as a Thai Papaya Salad, TomYam and Red Curry.


The papaya salad was spicy, sour and salty at the same time. The saltiness comes from the fish sauce which complemented the raw papaya slices in the salad.


We definitely enjoyed the mixed platter which is one of the popular appetizers served at the restaurant. Crunchy and not oily at all!


We ordered two types of Tom Yam - one spicy and non-spicy. The prawns were scrumptious and soup was tasty.


The Thai Roast Duck Red Curry was fantastic! The dish had a good balance between the "lemak" (coming from the coconut milk) and spicy chilli. The pineapples were sweet and was not acidic after it was cooked.


The restaurant served a unique type of rice, i.e. "red" rice which is less starchy. It went very well with the dishes served.


Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in this little gem in PJ. I would certainly go back again for my Thai food fix...
