Us floggers are quite familiar with this place, most having reviewed it when it first opened its doors back in 4th quarter 2007. There was the planning with maps strewn all over one of the tables here when four of us took part in The Star "Drive For Food". Ahhh...it was a trip that we really enjoyed, click HERE to read about it all. Then there was also the memorable floggers' Christmas/New Year party, "A Very Retro Christmas" held here in December 2007 where the floggers also contributed towards Pick n' Brew charity cause (not only to gather at My Elephant to eat but came bearing Christmas gifts for orphans).
My Elephant catapulted to fame, having to turn customers away during lunch and dinner as customers throng the place having read all the favourable blog reviews. Google "My Elephant Section 17" and it yields an impressive 413,000 results! Its main selling point is its reasonable price and its bare minimum design but yet classy dark interior while food quality has been consistently pretty good too. Business is still going strong for My Elephant today with no sign of slowing down - not especially when they run RM8.90 set lunch promo which consists of a main meal and a drink (Mmm...I wonder if the prices have been revised since I last went?). Here are some of the items from the lunch menu.
Pan Fried Rice with Pineapple and Assorted Seafood. I can't get my home fried rice to look half as good as this. Nice to look at and yummy!
Thai Rice Sticks with Popiah Tod (Deep Fried Spring Roll)
Stir Fried Glass Noodles
Overall, one gets a satisfying experience when dining here - from the food, the ambiance, the service and the bill (especially the lunch hour deals!!!). Lunch anyone? ;o)

Turn left after the Shell station, with the brown flats being on your right (going towards Happy Mansion). Then as you past the first block of flats on your left, slow down - it's the third block (the block opposite Food Foundry and same as Choong Yien, the chicken rice shop).
