Blog and Tweet Boston – Blogger Brunch at Elephant Walk South End

EW

Thanks to Blog & Tweet Boston, my husband Dave & I attended a blogger brunch at Elephant Walk in the South End of Boston on Sunday.

The fitness portion of the day for me was when my husband Dave & I showed up at the wrong location and had to run to get to the actually location on time. Ooops! I guess that means #bruchearned though right?

Elephant Walk has a mix of Cambodian and French cuisine.

The chef stopped by our table to explain her influences.

For the 1st course we had Rouleaux (Cambodian spring rolls).

They were amazing. The chef mentioned that you’re supposed to wrap them in the lettuce & add sprouts/mint to the wrap before eating it. (She gets sad when people think that the lettuce & sprouts are just a garnish and don’t eat them.)

For the main course, I tried Crêpe au Canard (crepe filled with duck braised in soy tamarind juices, portobello mushroom, crème frâiche, scallion, dressed baby greens). I’m a big duck fan but I don’t get to eat it often. This was a delicious presentation and I hope to be back to try it again soon. The duck was tender and the flavors worked great with the mushrooms!

For dessert, I had Délice au citron.

Delicious way to end the meal!

  1. Looks lovely! On another note, a bit of a chuckle, well I had one anyway imagining fitness and elephants in the same sentence!
