My vegan girlfriend and I stumbled into Wild Ginger to get out of the rain and had dinner there. We loved it so much and the dinner menu completely rocks. I am looking at it now and there are 16 different appetizers, 11 soups and salads, 18 mains, and 13 noodle and rice dishes. I had the pad thai and my girlfriend had the orange seitan. Both meals were filling and REALLY delicious. Most Asian veggie places rely on their sauces to sell a bland meal of tofu and veggies but WG was inventive with their courses as well as their sauces. For example, the orange seitan wasn't like normally processed seitan with a sesame orange sauce, it was lightly breaded and sautéed and served really crispy. Someone put a lot of effort into crafting this menu for sure because the same goes for the sweet citrus soy protein with kale, sweet and sour sesame soy protein, and avocado salad.
The real cool thing about this place is that the lunch specials start at noon and go until 4:30 with 15 menu items to choose from at $5-9 and it includes miso soup, spring roll, and rice. We just drink waters and our total is $16.29 for the both of us. The ambience is pleasant too making it a nice place for a date or friends. Out of all the cool veggie places near Bedford, this one is definitely the best in all aspects, food, cleanliness, and price.
Do it dude. You won't regret it.
