Affordable and Amazing!
Posted on 11 / 28 / 2008
My boyfriend and I were walking in Chinatown with my future in-laws, my boyfriend's brother and his girlfriend when our tummies were starting to grumble. My boyfriend and I being vegans, we all started looking for some good for us but still appetizing for the rest of the crowd (two of which won't touch tofu or any mock-meats). We stumbled upon Wild Ginger Kitchen, which had lots of great vegan dishes but noodle dishes for the picky people in our party. My boyfriend and I got an appetizer of vegetable dumplings - probably the best I've ever had! My boyfriend ordered a mock seafood plate with everything from vegan scallions to vegan shrimp, and he absolutely loved it. Everyone loved their food, even the picky ones! Dessert was out of this world - and they had plenty of chocolate desserts (something I hate at a lot of vegan restaurants, they avoid chocolate). At the end, the bill for the 6 of us was incredibly reasonable seeing as we all had drinks, appetizers, and dinner. My boyfriend and I ended up going back the next day for lunch! We went in February and being a small place, the draft from the door was a bit cold. Also, there was a group of Japanese business men in the restaurant so it was quite noisy (though I figure if a group of Japanese business men, very demanding restaurant goers, goes to Wild Ginger, it must be extra good!).
Affordable, Delicious food, Lots of choices
