Dining at the WIld Ginger was based on recommendation from a friend back home. It was described as a favorite of Seattle locals. Also, reading travel magazines about places to visit and restaurants to eat in Seattle, it was mentioned by one of my favorite TV host, David Bondai. I felt confident that it will be a good choice. Therefore, I suggested it to my friend, a Seattleite, she made reservations, and we met there for a late dinner (9:30ish). We enjoyed reacquainting ourselves, and our evening was great! As for the restaurant, my immediate impression was that it looked and felt like I walked in into a P. F. Chang's. As the evening progress, I noticed similar food items where listed in the menu, and the way it was served and expected to consume was also the same. At the end of the evening (two hours later), we realized our bill was too expensive for the meal we had. I had different expectations of what Wild Ginger would be like: more vibrant, and unique. This is just me, I see P. F. Chang's to be too commercialized and I saw Wild Ginger reminding me of that. My preference is to dine at restaurants that are unique to each destination.
