Chef Selections

Most of the Blue Elephant Trail’s chef’s specials are uniquely ours, conceptualized by our executive chef Soden Tek – sometimes with a little help from the older generations – and perfected in our kitchen.

Featured Beer: Koko Brown

We are shaking off the cobwebs after another New England winter; OK, it wasn’t that bad this year, but still, doesn’t it feel good to finally head into spring? Before we know it, we’ll be hitting the beach once again!

But spring is the time of birth and renewal, and what better opportunity than April for us to make some changes? In particular, we are updating the beers we have on tap. Our two most popular pours – Sam Adams (which rotates seasonally) and Sierra Nevada – are staying; we’re saying goodbye (for now) to our other kegs and trying something new on draught. We’ll introduce Bachelor #2 soon (hint: it begins with H and ends with oegaardan), but today please say hello to our newest draught beer: Koko Brown (more…)

Pad Thai

Pad Thai

It should be no surprise that pad thai is far and away the most popular dish on our menu. The same probably holds true for every Thai restaurant in the country.

Featured Cocktail: Dark N’ Stormy

For the rest of the winter, The Blue Elephant Trail is offering “Winter Warmers” from the bar – a collection of cocktails specifically meant to warm you up. Most of our winter warmers are hot drinks – except one: the Dark N’ Stormy.

You might be asking, why would I drink a Bermudan cocktail while eating Thai food? But, the primary flavors in this drink are very common flavors in Thai cooking, so it is really a perfect fit for us! (more…)

Loc Lac

Loc Lac is one of the few dishes on the menu that is not very Thai, but is very Cambodian. Our family traces its roots to both urban and rural parts of Cambodia, and Loc Lac is one of the classic Khmer dishes that can be found in the city and the countryside.

Phuket Seafood

Phuket Seafood

We take great pride in the care we put into this dish. It is not enough to throw assorted seafood into a pan – many of the different elements are cooked separately to bring out their unique individual flavors. Hearty crab, sweet scallops, fragrant squid, and earthy mussels all showcase their best qualities, while Thailand’s number one seafood – prawns – round out the flavor profile. The basil sauce brings them all together in this dish meant only for serious seafood lovers! (more…)
