tiny jewel in chinatown – DELICIOUS food. Lovely ambience. This place has everything but soundproof walls -- it's hard to escape the street noise of Little Italy. Curry quite good. Seitan -- black pepper and also teriyaki are delicious. Spinach shumai is surprisingly good. Mango salsa on scallion pancakes also good appetizer options. Eggplant in garlic sauce is ok. If you don't like spicy food, beware-- it has a MAJOR kick. Their ginger drink is awesome, in a gentle and soothing way.
All in all .. this place makes eating vegetarian easy and fun to do.
Best Vegetarian Food Ever! – Went to Wild Ginger for lunch this past weekend and it was quite simply the best vegetarian food I have ever had. In fact, I loved the smoked teriyaki seitan & sugar snap-peas so much, that I had to go back the next day. I was torn with so many delicious-sounding choices, but the sweet & sour sesame soy protein was fantastic - tasted, looked, and had the exact texture of sweet and sour chicken.
The lunch specials, served from noon to 4pm, are a real bargain. They range in price from $6 to $8 and include miso soup, steamed pumpkin, brown rice or coconut rice, and a spring roll. The presentation is clean and fresh, and the service was phenomenal.
I recommend this restaurant to vegetarians and to non-vegetarians. I can't wait to go back to New York to try something else on the menu!!
Vegetarian's Dream!!! – Yummy! Yummy! Wild Ginger is a vegetarian's dream restaurant! Lots of choices!!! General Tsao's "chicken" was, by far, the best meal at our table. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Best ginger ale on the planet – This restaurant is a true find. The ambience is both cozy and incredibly unique, with green moss on the exposed brick walls and window decorations made with exotic foods. The food was very fresh and high in flavor. The highlight was the hand made ginger ale, which was worth a return trip for the drink alone. Just the right balance of sweetness with a ginger kick.
GREAT! – Food is creative, and pleasing to the eyes and to the palate.
AND its all vegan! ...even got WOW's from non veg dining partners.
An Oasis in the City – Last night I visited Wild Ginger in person after ordering delivery for the last few months. Although I love eating at home (Spinach Rolls with Ponzu go great with Desperate Housewives), I've discovered it's worth a 10 minute walk from my place for the ambiance alone! My boyfriend is vegetarian and I am decidedly not, and after years of dating, I can honestly say that Wild Ginger is the ONLY place we've ever eaten where neither of us feels as though we're making a compromise. The delicious, artfully prepared food is consistently excellent and dare I say, addictive, and the only time I ever remember it's healthy is when I'd rather chide myself for eating too much! Everything on the menu is sublime, and I happily take friends who are carnivores, vegan, or anything in-between there knowing that they'll leave with a new favorite. Best of all, it's a bargain!
Awesome New Veggie Place! – This cozy, but not cramped, little Pan-Asian Vegetarian restaurant is a real find. It's almost completely vegan, with a knowledgable staff ready to answer any questions and make suggestions. Some of the menu choices are familiar (scallion pancakes, shu mai), while others are new twists on old favorites (glazed seitan over sugar snap peas with coconut rice--wow!). Everything I've tried so far has been delicious. The two flavors of soy ice cream (vanilla-ginger and black sesame) are out of this world. I've gone several times, both with friends and in large groups, and I'm never disappointed. When you get tired of pizza & pasta in Little Italy, head over to Wild Ginger!
