Having read great reviews of Green Ginger, we thought we'd venture there on a recent trip to Hull. We found it easily enough, and first impressions were good - clean, airy, bright decor and a good friendly reception.
The service was really good - friendly, helpful and efficient - and the food amazing. There were seven main dishes (including two soups), the majority of which were vegan, and all came with a choice of up to three of the salads from their fantastic salad counter - which had at least a dozen lovely salads. They also had a good choice of sweets, some vegan, and drinks both hot and cold.
I had the soy-sage and tomato pie with minted potato, tomato pasta and rice & bean salads, which was all very tasty. My wife had a bowl of spicy butternut squash soup, which I tried and we both agreed it was amazing - very hearty, and served with four chunks of bread. We each had an apple, carrot and ginger juice, which we also could not find fault with - not too sweet, not too "carrotty" and a nice ginger kick. For sweet, she had a peanut butter and chocolate square, which made her eyes roll round (a good thing), with a cup of tea, while I went for the toffee apple cake - again, faultless.
The portions were a good size - filling but not overwhelming, leaving one with just enough room to squeeze a sweet in :-)
To top it all off, it's great value for money - two mains, two fresh juices, two sweets, a cup of tea and a take-away carton of five of the salads for £20 - we will definitely be visiting again, even though we're 75 miles away ! Shame five happy cows is the maximum :-)
Note that currently Green Ginger is open 11am - 4pm on Tuesday-Saturday.
