Worthy of being called a destination-restaurant, My Elephant is a cute and quirky fine-dining Thai restaurant with a kitchen specialising in putting out dishes with fiery, sour north-eastern Isaan flavours. Dining at this low-key spot is an exploration of funky, spicy, complex and challenging flavour, plus we love the fact that the kitchen will crank up the chilli factor upon request. You will be smitten with the stir fries that are refreshingly light on oil, but My elephant’s bestseller is snow fish (RM58), a salt-baked seabass that goes great with the kitchen’s signature green chilli sauce, warm fluffy white rice and prawn tom som (clear galangal, lemongrass and lime soup with aromatic Thai herbs) soup (RM20) that packs just the right amount of chilli heat.
Its interior design is meant to evoke that of a New York loft, with wide open dining room accented by black and white paint colours, furniture with clean and simple lines allowing for easy traffic flow through the main walkways, and naked bulbs hanging from the ceiling casting a warm, romantic glow.

The Royal Flush @ Ara Damansara
The three-storey The Royal Flush is certainly an impressive sight from the outside, with its pagoda-style stupas, fire-engine red trimmings hung with glossy red paper lanterns, and a front pathway with sunken fountains. Inside its décor is just as impressive with porcelain vases, wood corbels and heavy antique wooden furniture ever present.
Opened in 2013, highlights from the menu include the soft, juicy steamed dragon garoupa fish that lies on a bed of soy sauce – the semi-sweet flesh of the fish blends beautifully with the salty, slightly wine-based soy sauce. However, our undeniable favourite is fried prawn with batter sauce – the fat prawns are succulent, topped with sweet, buttery sauce – when paired with fluffy white rice, this dish will have you coming back for more time and time again.

Way Modern Chinois
Way Modern Chinois is a classy restaurant in Kuala Lumpur that’s well-frequented for its extensive range of contemporary Chinese cuisine. Situated in Damansara Heights, this well-hidden establishment features a sleek elevator entrance that opens to a softly lit interior with a mix of wooden panels and mirrored walls, minimal yet modern decor, woodenfurnishing, and a massive vase of orchids as its centrepiece.
Way Modern Chinois is a pork-free establishment, featuring an array of Chinese delicacies with international influences and flavours. For starters, we sample the Wagyu bun (RM12), which is a deep-fried bun with black pepper Wagyu stuffing. Crafted in the shape of a porcupine, the bun remains crispy and soft while the piping hot filling is pleasantly savoury with a lingering peppery taste.
