Dinner at Wild Ginger in SLU

 On the Friday after Thanksgiving, my family and I like to go out to dinner. This year we dined at Wild Ginger in SLU, which is also referred to as Wild Ginger McKenzie. They're located in the McKenzie Apartment building, a luxury high rise in South Lake Union. 

Wild Ginger serves Pan Asian cuisine in a modern and upscale setting. Their menu has Southwest Asian food such as Chinese and Thai. Wild Ginger has been open since 1989, but this location opened in 2018. They also have a full bar, serving specialty cocktails. My drink was a Cherry Blossom. It had Sake, Cointreau, cranberry juice, lime, and orange bitters. My husband had a Rang Yai Pearl which had rum, coco lopez, pineapple juice, and lime. These cocktails were fancier versions of a Cosmo and a Pina Colada. They were very tasty drinks. 

They also have a kid's menu with Panko Chicken Nuggets, Chicken Satay, Fried Rice, and Chinese Noodles with Soy Sauce and Veggies. My sons had the nuggets and Chinese Noodles, which were egg noodles and my son really liked them. They were even offered complimentary Blackberry Sorbet at the end of their meal, which they really enjoyed. 

My husband and I shared several dishes. I like how the dishes are served family style, meaning you can have several things. We had the Cantonese Fried Rice with Vegetables, the Papaya Salad, and some Chicken Pad Thai. The Papaya Salad and Pad Thai were a little spicy. Everything tasted delicious and I was impressed with all of the flavors. 

Wild Ginger also has a downtown location and one in Bellevue. Definitely check this spot out if you enjoy Asian cuisine and cocktails in a classy setting!
