Lunch at Wild Ginger
Going to a work lunch and looking for some suggestions for what to order. I'm in the camp of the place is completely overrated and overpriced, so I haven't been in nearly two years. But I'm not paying so I won't bitch.
For those who eat here often, what is good? I eat beef, chicken, and fish/seafood, but not pork. Thanks for any suggestions.
Wild Ginger, imo, has gone WAY downhill since their move to the current location those many years ago. When I do have lunch there now, I usually stick to satays (I like the street hawker beef, especially) and the fragrant (aromatic?) duck.
I love their seven elements soup, but it's been awhile so I can't recall if it contains any pork.
I like the Wun Tun Mein -- crab dumplings in chicken broth. I also like the lamb bumbu -- although it might be a little plain for some tastes. I eat there for work lunches occasionally and I think the food has actually improved somewhat lately compared to when they first moved to the current space.
I've only been there once for lunch a number of years ago, but hit it for dinner occasionally. I agree the duck is great, we always get lamb bumbu, seven flavor beef, a ton of satays and the Szechwan green beans.
We used to go when they first opened in the original location and could get in with no reservations, two people, dinner/drinks for under $100! Miss those days. I also agree when they moved it went downhill, but I think they got it back under control the past number of years and we have never had a bad meal there, or service. Oh, that reminds me, martini lunch? ginger martini!
