Most of us foodies would agree, that Asian Fusion is the new black. Fusion cuisine, simply put, offers the dining enthusiast the opportunity to experience a variety of different cultures all under one roof. They have become quite popular and as a result, many new restaurants have opened all around us. So….the question is, what place do we try next? Well before you flock to the next new hot spot in Nassau County, there is a hidden gem that lies right here in our own backyard.
Wild Ginger located in East Northport, is not just another Asian Fusion restaurant. With other locations in Great Neck, Rockville Centre, and Smithtown, there is no doubt that these guys are really onto something. From Thailand and China, to Japan and Indonesia, you will be impressed with the originality and creativity that Wild Ginger delivers.
Booths create a comfortable setting that provides distinction between the sushi bar and main dining room. Humble in it’s ambience, make no mistake about it, this place is all about the food.
Here is a list of some must have dishes. For starters: The “Tuna Dumpling” is amazing and is something like you have never had before. Its made from fresh Tuna Sushi in the shape of a pouch, stuffed with lobster salad, avocado, seaweed salad and wasabi mayo. Though a little large, you’ve got to manage to get the entire pouch in your mouth in one shot. Upon chewing , all of the goodies in the pouch open up with an explosion of flavors. It’s insane and that good. They come two to an order. If you like to share apps as I do, then try the “Pepper Tuna Tataki“. I love the bite from the Tuna and the spicy mayo that works well with the wasabi aioli and ponzu sauce.
Wild Ginger has a wide selection of Ala Carte Sushi and Sashimi, Sushi Entrees, Specialty Rolls and their ever so popular Wok n’ Grille. Well….if you have never been here before, share your entrees so you can taste a little of this and a little of that. The Chef highly recommends the “Fusion Sushi”, presented to you are 10 pcs. of Sushi, made with 5 different kinds of sushi (2 ea.), accompanied by their own unique topping and sauce. Salmon, Yellow Tail, Tuna, and Uni or King Crab make up the combo. For those that like a little spice in their life, try a specialty roll like the “Tsunami”. Jalapeno, pepper dew, red pepper and cucumber come wrapped with pepper tuna and avocado, served with a spicy sauce. Simply Delish!!
Heat up your dinner choice with one of their many Wok n’ Grille House Specials. The “Grilled Filet Mignon and Shrimp” served with mixed vegetables is an excellent choice. Unique to Wild Ginger is their “Fire Wok” prepared with Shrimp, Lobster Tail, Sea Scallops, Lemon Grass and Thai Curry.
Accompany any of their entrees with one of Wild Gingers’ irresistible cocktails, like their Shanghai Mai Tai, Mango Mohito or Pomegranate Martini and you will be ready to enjoy an experience that will keep you coming back for more. It’s just another reason why you will fall in love with the originality and creative presentation that you will find at Wild Ginger.
