If I were to rank my favorite cuisine, it would go like this: Western/Italian, Szechuan (specifically), Thai, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Indian, Malay and so on.
Of course Thai food would come in a good 3rd Rank, and I get Thai food craving like ALL the time!
Whilst my favourite thai restaurant in KL still goes to ERAWAN (thanks to their Level 4 Tom Yum which gets me hot and cold all over) it’s good to have a change of environment, especially when Erawan is close for renovation, and is always fully booked!! Tough chance to find a place with last minute booking!
I went to My Elephant (Sri Hartamas) branch on two occasions. The restaurant setting is simple yet appearing neat and comfortable. Both occasions the restaurant is filled with patrons, surely that’s a good sign. Many of these people probably reside within the neighbourhood. I was surprise to spot a few other restaurants I’ve never noticed but looked very promising, take Isaki Japanese restaurant, for example.
To sum it up, My Elephant dishes has its hits and misses. Their spicy dishes are quite mild in my opinion, hence probably appealing to mainstream population.
Prices are very reasonable with their dishes ranging in the RM10-RM20 range, with some seafood dishes costing about RM40+, some portions however is ridiculously small.
Fish was decent, while it was nothing that goes “WOW” as many has claimed. we’ve tried both the Steamed Fish with My Elephant’s signature lime-garlic-chilli padi dressings, and “Snow Fish”- Salt Baked fish with my My elephant’s signature green chilli sauce. I like the former in comparison, probably due to the sauces which has a nice tinge of sourness to it.
