7 Elephants is a takeout-only Thai spot on East Broadway. While their green curry is spicy and savory and the crispy curry rolls are an excellent appetizer, your order here needs to be the massaman curry with shredded beef. The peanutty, rich curry is a perfect combo with the stringy beef - you get a perfect blend of tender meat and hunks of fat, which combine for a hearty dinner on a cold night.
