Steamed Seafood Curry in Coconut Shell
I don't know if it was just severe hunger pangs but Geus and I think that the Steamed Seafood Curry in Coconut Shell is heavenly. My only complaint is the lack of scallops and the number of shrimps. But I seriously did not mind during that time because the fish was tender and there were lots of squid slices. The sauce was not very spicy but it tasted good because of the abundance of fresh basil leaves.
Pad Thai Noodles
The pad thai also tasted good. The only difference between Blue Elephant's Pad Thai and Lemon Grass' Pad Thai is that the latter makes sure that their pad thai has lots of fresh, crunchy bean sprouts. If Blue Elephant can just add more bean sprouts, their Pad Thai would've been perfect. I also love their presentation of the dish. They placed the peanuts and the veggies at the side so that the customers have the option to mix those with their noodles or not.
We were not able to finish the Pad Thai because we got full with their curry already. The serving is not huge but it can serve 2 people.
When we arrived, they immediately gave us the menu and suggested the specialty of the house. Our order arrived in about 5 minutes which is relatively fast. During the middle of our meal, the waitress approached us and asked us how we are finding our dinner and if we need anything else. After dinner, she asked what we think of the food. I love restaurants with friendly waiters.
My only complaint is the blue light that they use in the restaurant. I know that this restaurant's theme is blue but blue light is not really good for the eyes and for the pictures. I got a little bit dizzy with the blue lights. I hope they change that to incandescent for better ambience.
