“Are you free tomorrow for lunch?” Jessica asked, I said Yes, it’s been a while since the last time we talked about her blog etc. Jessica suggested that we have lunch at Wild Ginger, one of the few restaurants at Power Plant Mall that serves Asian specialties from all over Southeast Asia.
I love Asian food, Who doesn’t? I must admit, I had a hard time choosing from the menu and instead of going back and forth and possibly ending up with the wrong choice I just asked Jessica for suggestions since she’s already familiar with the restaurants menu. After a short chat she ordered Pork with red curry paste while she recommended that I try their Beef Rendang. It’s no doubt that the place is her favorite restaurant, in fact she calls this restaurant her office extension. Hmmm I dont think thats advisable for me:)
Wild Ginger’s bestseller includes beef rendang, a popular Halal beef recipe in Marawi and other Muslim Cities in Asia; Singapore fish curry, Vietnamese seafood salad – a light and mild salad; premium oxtail kare kare from the Philippines – if in case you want to go for the familiar local stew with vegetables and a special bagoong; and Wild Ginger chicken adobo, an heirloom specialty recipe.
Their Beef Rendang reminded me of Marawi City, this spicy beef dish is a favorite recipe in this southern part of the country thought Wild Gingers recipe is much tastier than the one I previously had.
For dessert, Jessica ordered Gula Melaka – a sago pearl pudding which is a popular Malaysian dessert while I had a slice of Sticky Toffee Pudding – a caramelized moist sponge cake covered in a toffee sauce. I liked their food and the price is very reasonable, You can try some of their specialty dishes coz its simply good and best of all its Asian.
