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?

Thanks much!

    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.

        the little cambodian egg rolls are very good and they make fish very well on both sides of the menu (the trout is excellent).

        nataing (spicy ground pork in coconut milk served with crispy jasmine rice cakes for dipping)

          If you like beef, the Loc Lac is awesome!
