My Elephant Thai Restaurant @ SS17

my Elephant is nothing like the Thai Restaurant chain in Klang Valley (Amarin-Flying Chillies-Bangkok Jam-Just Thai-etc..) - in term of its Thai originality and also the dining experience is fantastic.

It is in one of the ground-floor-shop-lots in the SS17 Happy Mansion Flat (not far from 6to9Grill), not facing the main road. However, during dinner time, you will see cars (including the fancy ones) filled the parking lots along the dark alley and the non-stop flow of customers. So, Reservation is essential especially during the weekends.

Nikom, the cook who hails Thailand's northern most city - Chiang Rai as the heart and soul of Thai food. His menu looks very 'authentically Thai', it took us a long time to figure out what to order. For the Thai Teaser (appetizer), we had paper roll/ popiah previously, so this time, we opted for..

Tod Man Plah
.Handmade Deep Fried Thai Fish Cakes.

Not just Tom Yam, they have Tom Ka [Semi Sweet Galangal-Lemongrass Soup with Aromatic Herbs & Coconut Milk] , Tom Som [Clear Galangal-Lemongrass-Lime Soup with Aromatic Thai Herbs] and also the non-spicy soups.

myElephant Tom Yum Seafood
.SUPER Spicy Galangal-Lemongrass-Lime Soup

with Aromatic Herbs & Homemade Red Chilli Paste.

As for THai curry (besides the Green and Red), you could try their Curry + Fruit (such as lychee/Rambutan) or perhaps the DUCK curry which has this extra twist of fruit sweetness, refreshing yet spicy - very special, MUST TRY.

Gaeng Keow Wan
Thai Green Curry with Chicken.

Other Must-Try's are the SnowFish -salt baked and the Thai Salads. These Thai dishes are accompanied with the healthy Rice mix (Jasmine + Brown).

The Siamese Drinks are the Coolers, Mojito (non alcoholic) and smoothie which are all very good firemen, particularly the Pandan Cooler.

Address - C-G-4 Happy Mansion, Jalan 17/13, SS 17, PJ
