Want to know what we think/thought?
This was my first time visiting Wild Ginger, being vegetarian many have tried introducing me to eat here
As I opened the door to the restaurant I saw that inside was dimly lit with traditional decor. I felt as if I were at a retreat (an escape, yet within the city).
The waiter greeted me (not the most welcoming yet not completely drab either), he allowed me to seat myself wherever I choose to be exact.
I made the executive decision to seat myself by the window. Meanwhile he gently placed the menu onto my table & I began to glance through it. I made my selection & noticed they offered LEMONADE!!! Obviously I was going to order that not only was it Lemonade it was “freshly squeezed”.
As I patiently waited for my samosas the lemonade was placed onto the table!!! :) LEMONADE (it’s my thing). This wasn’t an amateur lemonade it was extremely balanced! Not too tart nor too sweet & it came in a tall glass! I would have loved pulp though, this would have verified it being freshly squeezed, so quite naturally I’m dubious!!!!
My samosas came served with a chutney sauce! I’m also a fan of samosas :) They were good especially paired with the chutney sauce!
My General Tso medley came next on a bed of broccoli & an interesting brown rice which was accompanied by soy beans.
So here’s the exciting part! As I sat fighting with my chopsticks (which usually I don’t have an issue with) I looked up & noticed that my waiter was sitting diagonally across from me. I saw him doodling as he looked directly at me. At first I didn’t make complete sense of this & once he did it again (glanced at me & began doodling in sequence) I realized he was sketching a picture of me.
At first I figured it was something the restaurant did as their customers ate (a cute courtesy gift)! Yet I calculated that that would be awfully weird so I cancelled that thought & began to think maybe this is a one off!
So I discreetly lingered around after paying my bill fiddling around in my bag etc to see if I’d receive a signed/autograph portrait of myself from Picasso himself!… and nothing! I was confused at least if you’re going to be creepy enough to sketch a photo of me give me the opportunity to photograph your sketch, if not the best thing is to get permission.
All in all I enjoyed my lemonade the most :)
Yes I would return here because I have the option of trying EVERYTHING ON THE MENU (being that it’s a vegetarian restaurant) & when I return I’ll definitely be asking for my sketch lol
Sherelle’s Additional note: it is a bit weird seeing multiple people going in & out of the kitchen, people you know are not chefs…hmm a little off putting!
