Like a tongue on a flagpole in February, fusion cuisine results from curiosity and a shortage of popsicles. Rein in restless taste buds with today's Groupon to Wild Ginger. Choose between two options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of Asian-fusion lunch (available Monday–Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.).
- For $10, you get $20 worth of Asian-fusion dinner.
With fresh ingredients and homemade sauces, Wild Ginger devises distinctive dishes incorporating elements of China, Thailand, India, and more. Sample succulence on a skewer with an appetizer of satay chicken ($6.95 for four), before choosing from an array of Asian-inspired lunch wraps ($8.95–$10.95). String beans pamper themselves in a savory garlic sauce amidst a choice of protein in noodle, rice, and wok dishes ($7.95+ for lunch, $11.95+ for dinner), as a cozy pillow of naan bread cradles the subtle spice of curry chicken, leaving it free to dream about winning Indian trivia shows using only food-related knowledge ($8.95 for lunch, $10.95 for dinner). A variety of steamed vegetable dishes ($11.95) and innovative salads ($7.95–$9.95 for lunch, $6.95–$10.95 for dinner) subtly satisfy with healthy helpings, while a number of noodle soups lasso loose chopsticks ($8.95–$10.95). Sodas, Thai iced tea, and an extensive beer, wine, and liquor list top off multifarious flavors.
Fresh, chilled fish crown the hand-cut rolls of sushi at Wild Ginger, where the Japanese delicacies comprise only a small part of the robust Asian fusion menu. Diners can stick to one cuisine or construct meals that pull from all over the East, beginning with an appetizer of edamame, moving on to aromatic platters of pad thai or takeout-classic general tso’s chicken, and sides such as Singapore-influenced rice noodles. Skilled culinary professionals hand-blend the restaurant's broad repertoire of sauces from ingredients so fresh that they regularly deposit coins into the kitchen's swear jar.
