Gingerine Fresh Asian’s chefs sling a varied menu of modern Asian fare, with dishes running the flavor gamut from sweet to sour to spicy. Amid charming floral art and checkered brick walls, rev up appetites for a lap around the culinary track with a slurp of noodle soup, such as the Diving Shrimps, a spicy broth chock-full of rice noodles, mushrooms, tomatoes, and synchronized-swan-diving crustaceans ($11.99). The Nutty Professor stir-fry tucks steamed broccoli, bean sprouts, and carrots into bed with a legume quilt of Noodle Swing peanut sauce ($10.99), and the Golden Yellow curry tests a tongue’s spicy threshold and knowledge of primary colors ($10.99).
