I forget how good soy protein can be. Wild Ginger reminded me with grace and very little effort. Party of two. We ate at an odd time- around 5PM, so there was no wait, but I hear this place can get a little unruly. You may have to wait for a table, but it is worth it. We ordered the steamed pumpkin as our appetizer. I'm not a big steamed anything person, but this place made me rethink my ways. (Dust off the steamer!) It was yummy. The pumpkin was tender and Wild Ginger gave it room to flaunt its pretty ways. For our main course, we had the basil soy protein and the bibimbap. The bibimbap was a big fat wow. Although not necessarily the most traditional bibimbap. it certainly was a great combination of so many different flavors- where east meets west. It had the traditional seaweed and vegetables, but it also showed off these delicious seitan strips and mango salsa! The creamy avocado to the yummy little side condiments completed this dish.

Basil Soy Protein- The vegetables were cooked perfectly. Crispy and flavorful. The protein had a nice hint of Chinese five spice and was also cooked well. I ordered the bibimbap so I'm unfairly partial to my own order, but I picked enough off of my company's plate to appreciate this well made dish.

There was no room for dessert. There is almost always room for dessert. Another day.

Atmosphere/Service- pretty, cozy, warm. Our server was nice and informative.

I really liked this place. Our seitan skewer appetizer was a perfect blend of sweet and spicy; the basil soy protein was spicy, fresh and crispy, with an array of colorful vegetables; the shredded tofu was light and well-seasoned, though could have used a bit more spice. Our desserts were both spectacular, from the chocolate vegan cheesecake to the peanut butter bomb, which was rich and decadent. Service was friendly, if a bit slow. Prices are reasonable and the portions are just right.
