On Wednesday night hundreds of friends, fans and media flocked to Pink Elephant Thai Restaurant and the latest instalment (and success story) courtesy of Vancouver’s Chen family – celebrating 25 years in business.
We paused by the pink carpet and managed to grab a shot of the Chen brothers posing with Playboy Energy Drink “bunnies” before heading inside. Delectable Thai treats were passed around the room and the vino seemed free-flowing as we worked our way around, mingling with a post-work crowd primed to get the party started.
The talented DJ SKLA spun wicked beats from his vantage point, perfectly perched above the room, and we snuck up and away a few times whilst sipping our Singha and noshing freshly prepped Spring Rolls. It seemed as though there was no end to the stream of fashionable guests and well-wishers flowing into the packed space, all wanting to congratulate a family who have worked tirelessly to put Thai cuisine on Vancouver’s culinary map. Having established the original Thai House restaurant back in 1986, the group has since expanded to include a collection of seven restaurants throughout the city; and we think this was indeed a noteworthy cause for kudos and cheers!
