MyELEPHANT Thai Restaurant opened its doors in Ipoh recently. Being the sixth and only one outside the Klang Valley, it is a well recognised name amongst foodies.
Although being a Thai restaurant, the decor is contemporary with the walls adorned with black and white pictures of the food, and the mixed-medium artwork of Fenyi Lai depicting Ipoh’s streets.
myELEPHANT Head Chef, Kenny Loh introduced their signature dishes. First came the Tom Som Seafood; the clear galangal, lemongrass, lime and Thai herbs soup, which was not too spicy but just spicy enough to break into a fine perspiration. Soups also come with chicken and prices range from RM15-RM22 (for pax 2, 4 or 8). Next came the sweet Yum Som Orr, the special Thai pomelo salad served with fresh prawn; Tod Man Plah, handmade deep-fried Thai fish cakes; ‘Snow’ Fish, which is the salt-baked whole seabass; and Gaeng Phet Yaeng, roast duck curry.
Chef Kenny also mentioned that their signature dishes remain unchanged since the first day they opened for business and their chicken stock is homemade and has no MSG.
myELEPHANT has 12 set lunches with prices ranging from RM9.90-RM16.90.
This pork-free traditional Thai restaurant is at No.5 Jalan Lau Ek Cheng, 30300 Ipoh. They are open 7 days for lunch at 11.30am-2.30pm, and dinner at 6pm-10pm.
