One of the best ways to understand any culture is by eating their local food. Your first brush with Thai culture begins when you set foot into the restaurant and are greeted by dangling leaves, colourful flowers, simple hut-like structures and soothing Thai music. Now onto the mouth-watering food which is prepared with ingredients imported fresh from Thailand. The Thai fish cakes which are mixed with spices, slathered with red curry paste and then fried to perfection are not to be missed. The stir-fried prawns and mushrooms served with a sweet and sour sauce is a delight for seafood lovers but if you are a vegetarian, fret not as Blue Elephant have a host of options, ranging from noodle and vermicelli soups, to stir-fried okra and jasmine rice among others. Desserts, such as the Sodsai, which is rice flour mixed with steamed coconut milk and caramelised coconut stuffing, as well as the star of Siam, a heavenly mélange of fresh fruits and homemade pudding. don’t disappoint either. A beautiful setting, authentic Thai food and impeccable service are what you can expect to find when you dine at Blue Elephant.
