After more than three years of brisk business at Section 17, My Elephant recently opened a second Aladdin's cave of Thai cuisine in another suburban neighborhood.
This branch's menu seems slightly wider, but we stuck to our longtime Elephant favorites. The duck curry with lychee & dragon fruit was as addictive as always _ a creamy concoction anchored by bountiful slices of tender meat.
Salt-baked fish, boasting marvelously moist flesh. My Elephant's prices have remained remarkably reasonable over the years _ a boon in this era of soaring costs.
White Thai kangkung with chicken & prawns. Ferociously spicy.
Plenty of rice, potentially sufficient to spur someone to spend hours on the treadmill.
One complaint: no wine is available so far, only beer.
Bookings are essential; the place is packed even on weeknights.
The crowds only leave after 10pm, once the kitchen is closed.
Jalan Sri Hartamas 8, Taman Sri Hartamas.
