My Elephant @ Happy Mansion, Section 17

BY Unknown IN , No comments

My Elephant, I had heard for their restaurant over a year but never get chances come for trying their foods. Although I always wander in Petaling Jaya area but not in Section 17. Because in my impression, Section 17 is housing area and it is. So where My Elephant is located? My Elephant hiding in a residential-flat neighborhood. If someone who not familiar this area might not notice them.

This is visit with unexpected when we are finding any place to dinner.
And My Elephant is pop out from my mind and ask to getting there just for trying how well of their Thai recipe! 

The restaurant was neat and paint with white colour on the wall. The indoor decor is simple and pretty enough. This is surprisingly when I enter to the restaurant. If you wish to having some small party, this may be consider as your choice. 

TomSom-- Seafood
Clear galangal, lemongrass and lime soup with aromatic Thai herbs. To knowing whether the Thai food is tasty, tomyam soup is a must to trying and myElephant, did it.
Gaeng Keow Wan
This is Thai green curry chicken and the curry is too good without spicy.

Plah Meuk Yang Prik Kluea
Grill squid with chilli and salt. This having a bit spicy and the degree of spicy is varying for each individual.

Thai KangKung
KangKung is stir-fried with belacan and minced chicken and this always a good combination to bringing tasty.

Green Mango Cooler
Thai special green mango with lime

We choose Hom Malee and Brown Rice as our rice. Even we are 3 person (girls only) but all the meals component is come for 2 pax. Surely can satisfy your appetite.

Caesar Salad

This is my favorite salad all time. No matter which restaurant I visit, this is my salad choice. The vegetables is serve with freshly.

Chicken Chop

The chicken chop is serve with black pepper and the boneless meat cook with softly.

Butter Fish

Ed Chefyuri's Traditional Portuguese Seafood Paella

Rice is a rare option in Western menu and we getting to try it. Honestly, I still prefer Chinese or Malaysia style comparing with Western style. I have no any preference in this dish whether the sauce mix or ingredients. :s


Red Velvet Cake
Dessert is a must in fine dining to complete our meal. The cake they are prepare is good. Not too sweet on cheesecake. Don't expect too much on their dessert if you are dessert lover too like me. So far I can accept it. :)
