What's good at Wild Ginger (Bellevue)?

ethereal May 27, 2010 11:01 AM

The location is not up for discussion, I know it's not necessarily on the list of favorites. But when you go there, what do you like to eat/order? Looking for suggestions for a group...so a mixed bag of options is needed.

    I'm a fan of the Fragrant Duck at Wild Ginger. The Laksa soup or Squash and Sweet Potato Stew are also winners. I also like the 7 Flavors Beef and Panang Curry. The Peasants Chicken Skewers are usually a crowd pleaser.

    I would avoid the Sichuan Green Beans. They taste like green beans but they sure pale in comparison to places like Szechuan 99 or Seven Stars Pepper.

      Recently a waitress told me the favorites were Seven Flavors Beef and their Kung Pao Chicken. We each had one of them, and they were quite good.

      Good for you for heading off any discussion of the location, that can go on forever.

        Never been to the Bellevue location, but at the Seattle one my standard order includes the street hawker beef satay and the fragrant duck. YUM. I haven't been to WG when I could have a cocktail in years, but they used to do a really yummy mango cocktail.

          I've been there a couple of times and enjoyed:

          -twice cooked indonesian chicken wings
          -ahi bruschetta (wild ginger bruschetta)
          -7 flavor beef
          -sichuan green beans

          Didn't really care for:
          -singapore crab
          -fragrant duck

            In my opinion, not much: http://www.yelp.com/biz/wild-ginger-b...
