Elephant Walk (South End)

Area: Downtown

This South End restaurant has a split personality. The menu offers both French and Cambodian dishes that will satisfy carnivores, vegans and vegetarians. Tables are set up along a long rectangular type space with dark flooring, exposed brick, unfinished ceiling and unique artwork.  There is also a bar and stools for those looking for a non-table meal.  It's urban, casual and somewhat cool.

Dinner's menu offers a balance of heartier and lighter fare. We think veggie eaters will go for the "Timbale De Legumes", which includes a bevy of balsamic marinated vegetables alongside chickpea hummus. Crispy dumplings and spring rolls will satisfy those who like a little crunch. Cambodian sour soup with tiger shrimp; raw tuna and avocado salad; baby spinach salad with pan-roasted pear, and a vegan soba noodle salad are other starters. Entrees like spicy pork tenderloin with blistered shishito peppers; flat rice noodles with choice of tofu or shrimp in a garlicky aged soy sauce; grilled rainbow trout with spicy jalapeno lime marinade; Faroe Island salmon with a light lemon cream sauce, and beef tenderloin with caramelized black pepper are entree examples.  The sides list includes pickled ginger cucumber, steamed veggies, mashed potato, garlic noodles, and crispy polenta. The lunch menu is more limited but includes the soups and salads, some entrees, and unique sandwiches. The brunch menu offers savory egg dishes, but not much in the way of sweet breakfast fare.

Open nightly for dinner.  Lunch Thurs and Friday starting at 11:30a and Weekend Brunch 11:30a-3:30p

Vegan and Vegetarian friendly
