my ELEPHANT Thai Restaurant @ Section 17

my ELEPHANT was opened a good few years back. I still remember after good 'ol 6 to 10 Grill moved to a new lot, an economy rice business took over their lot. Shortly after that, my ELEPHANT was born. Despite the restaurant being there for so long, I've never once step in to check it out. Reason ? It's always packed and I hate waiting especially when I'm hungry. And when I'm hungry, it's hard to tell whether the food is nice or not.

When we got there tonight, the place was packed and it's hell to drive elsewhere to look for food. And the waitress told us that the wait is 5-10 minutes. That beats driving around again. So we comply and sat quietly with our iPhones.

As Mr Hubs was famished (he walked around for hours at PC Fair today), I let him order. Coz I was still full from my after work Java Chips Frap from Starbucks. This is what happens when a hungry man orders for 2 :

Tom Yam Seafood (Small). Portion is generous. Soup tastes good and not too spicy. But there's too much lemongrass in it. It overpowers most of the other dishes. 

Brown Rice. I do commend them for choosing a healthier option for their customers. However, the rice dries up quickly and hardens making it hard to eat. I recommend you to eat the rice with the soup.

Phad Pak Ka Na - Thai Style Pan Fried Kailan.

Khai Jiao Ho Mok - Special Egg Omelette with Fish Otak Otak. I couldn't taste much of the egg because of the Tom Yam. So. it's not in my place to comment on this dish.

Gai Phad Med Mamuang - Pan Fried Diced Chicken with Dried Chilli and Cashew Nuts. Same as above.

What I'll do next time when I dine here is, I'll try the other dishes before attempting to drink any of the Tom Yam Soup. At this point in time, I love what they have to offer and the products used are fresh (I like that a lot!) and it shows a lot of passion from the chef and owner. 

I will definitely come back again but I hope that they will be less generous with lemongrass.
