Raved about L’Elephant yesterday, in fact we liked it so much we were back again today for lunch.  Not surprisingly the staff were the same as yesterday and being a small restaurant, they remembered us.

Today we ordered pretty much the same, the only difference was replacing the nem rice with buffalo skin curry (in addition to the grilled buffalo). 

The curry was basically a red curry with three types of meat, chicken, pork and the hard buffalo skin.  It could have been a challenge, but I’m used to having pork skin etc, so this was really no difference.  The thing we noticed with Lao cooking is that they used slightly different spices which (to me) makes the dishes taste more gamey.
