After dinner, I had a really strong craving for dessert. Not just any kind that we can easily get or is popular these days like the waffles & ice cream trend. I wanted nothing other than some Thai delicacy and since I was already nearby one, my friends and I decided to pay a visit to My Elephant. Although I wish we had eaten there for dinner instead as the other diner's meals made me feel slightly envious. But I went straight for what my stomach wanted which were the sweet treats.

Although I wish we had eaten there for dinner instead as the other diner's meals made me feel slightly envious. But I went straight for what my stomach wanted which were the sweet treats. First we got the Mango with Glutinous rice. I really like the sweet mango and slight salty rice combination.
This resembles the sticky rice mango only without the coconut milk which was slightly disappointing, but that didn't stop us from finishing this plate entirely. Though given that the portion is probably enough for one person with a small appetite for dessets and for Rm8.50, it is a little pricey. But we ordered other desserts to share so it was easily overlooked. We also ordered the Mango with Sago priced at Rm 6.50, because I was really in the mood for it. This one also reminded me of the sticky mango rice that we'd get in Thailand only instead of rice it's soft jelly-like sago. This also came with lots of coconut milk and was super slurp-worthy. Then there's the Red Ruby dessert which is my absolute favourite when it comes to Thai desserts. Those crunchy chestnuts wrapped in chewy sago in a coconut milk 'broth' with shaved ice and also slices of jackfruit is the best thing ever created. Priced at Rm6.50, I thought this was pretty worth it as it was a moderate sized portion.
However this was SLIGHTLY disappointing because the coconut milk tasted a little odd to me. Rather than those that is freshly squeezed, it tasted like something out of the packet which was off putting to me. So I mostly just ate the jackfruit and also chestnuts cause those were the star of the dish.
