2. Lamb Shank
If you eat out often, then you know that lamb shanks can taste different depending on how they are prepared. The Elephant & The Butterfly keeps it simple with this one.

If you also try their tasty Mee Mamak and one of their signature smoothies on your first visit, give yourself a pat on the back.
