What's decent to order at Elephant Walk?
We'll be going with my uncle (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/687635) and his family to Elephant Walk (Boston) for Saturday dinner tomorrow...I've been to Elephant Walk (Cambridge) a couple times and haven't been super impressed with their food (I remember having the Loc Lac), but due to a confluence of factors, EW Boston is where we're headed.
Any suggestions for best dishes to order?
Is it true that the Cambodian side of the menu is stronger than the French side?
The Cambodian side of the menu is stronger and also tends to have more interesting specials. I recommend any catfish preparation (they often do a carmelized, stone-pot catfish, akin to Vietnamese prep) the curry aux legumes or the poulet citronelle. Both the latter are bascailly curry dishes, but there are overall, enough fresh herbs and veggies to make them interesting IMHO.
