Elephant Walk Restaurant Review

: Though Elephant Walk likes to bill itself as French-Cambodian, the hyphen probably should be replaced by an explanation: that this home-run hitting trio of restaurants actually offers not fusion cuisine but two wholly different menus, both more nuanced, in more upscale environs, than most expect, as well-informed waitstaff negotiate handsome interiors with slyly exotic touches. Start off with a sampling of traditional Cambodian nataing, a sweet yet spicy combination of ground pork simmered in coconut milk with peanuts, garlic and chili pods, served atop crispy rice. It’s always fun to mix and match appetizers and entrées, especially when it comes to Khmer-style cuisine. We recommend sticking to the Cambodian menu for appetizers then pairing them with a French entrée like the pan-seared cod with Champagne sauce or juicy steak frites. On the Cambodian side, you can’t go wrong with the Amok Royal, a spicy custard-like combination of shellfish, crab and catfish with sweet coconut milk and Khmer spices. Marjolaine chocolate chiffon cake with coffee praline buttercream and Chantilly will leave you dreaming of Paris.
