A beautiful Sunday in the City

The first Sunday in May, I joined a few other blogger friends from BlogandTweetBoston and we had a nice brunch at Elephant Walk in the South End.  I left the house around 11 o’clock and was able to get in the city around 11:40… a nice leisurely ride without too much traffic. After driving around a few blocks looking for a parking space, I found one a block away and arrived right on time… I didn’t realize it, but it was also the opening day for SoWa Outdoor Market and the first gorgeous weekend since this horrible winter, so everyone was out and about. Elephant Walk had their front full length windows open so those lucky enough to be right near the windows had a great spot to people watch…

The chef/owner, Nadsa de Monteiro, daughter of the original owner, came out to speak with the group and introduce herself and tell us about the reasoning behind the offerings of French and Cambodian cuisine on the same menu. I learned that Cambodian cuisine is like Thai except that it doesn’t use as much sauce to flavor things or sweeten things but rather uses spice and other methods to flavor the food and is often lighter and healthier than other asian cuisines.

The food was amazing and the company was great! You can see the different food that I sampled below. Yum!!

NOTE: We were treated to brunch in exchange for promising to post a review within 2 weeks of attending the event.
