First Bite: Wild Ginger

I feel terrible when I pay for a dish I find “meh” or worse… “blargh”. I had that sentiment last Friday when I had lunch at a ramen place in Rockwell. The broth had a very odd taste and the appetizer we ordered was too salty. It’ll take me a long while before I decide to visit that place again. The only perk I got from the lunch was when my colleague mentioned a list of restaurants I have to try. One of the restaurants she mentioned was Wild Ginger.

Hello, Wild Ginger!
I always pass by this restaurant and it never really made me curious as I only see a few people eat here. But since my colleague mentioned that this quaint restaurant serves good food, I had to give it a try.

R was indecisive that night so I ordered for the both of us: Pad Thai (PHP245), Thai Green Chicken Curry (PHP285), and Asian Tomato Soup (PHP135). I also got a glass of cold Calamansi juice (PHP75).
I was a bit iffy to order the tomato soup as it mentioned “spices from the East Indies” but I assumed that it wouldn’t be spicy. WRONG. It was so spicy that it made me cough and tear up. People who love spicy dishes would like this though.
The Pad Thai was quite lovely. It had a generous serving of flat noodles and shrimps. R tried to get my shrimps though when he saw me saving it. (I like to save the best for last.)
I loved the Thai Green Chicken Curry. It was rich in flavors and the chicken was so tender. I loved putting the curry sauce on my rice and munching on the chicken with the eggplant bits. This is a must order dish!
I’ll definitely visit again but I’ll skip the tomato soup next time.

Wild Ginger is located at B1 Powerplant Mall, Rockwell Center, Makati City.
