Wild Ginger on Urbanspoon

I’ve been sick for the past week with a really bad cold and it’s been a while since I updated my blog. On my last trip to Seattle I dropped by one more restaurant I haven’t blogged about. This time it isn’t seafood but Asian cuisine with an American twist. If you’re thinking PF Chang or Ho Lee Chow, you wouldn’t differ much from what I was thinking when I first walked into Wild Ginger.

A fancy interior with a non-Asian staff.

The wooden chairs are huge and it was so busy so we ended up eating at a ledge (it’s like a bar but without the bar part)

Lemongrass Chicken:

Pow Wok Lamb:

Emerald Prawns:

I wish I remembered what both of these dishes were called but when I find a copy of my bill I’ll update this blog with the names. Their smaller sized dinner items are around $18 while the larger sized are $24, which is quite pricy. I opted for the smaller sizes so I could try different flavors. All their dishes are flavored well in the sauce, service was good, and a nice ambiance for dates. The good: the food is what you’d expect from a real Asian restaurant so it’s not egg rolls and chicken balls in sweet & sour sauce. The bad: it’s expensive. I recommend this restaurant for a visit to see if you like it. I liked it but it’s nothing special and its high price keeps me away.
