Review: Wild Ginger

Review: Wild Ginger

Last month’s Happy Mouth outing was to Wild Ginger, a pan-Asian restaurant in Hyde Park.  It’s a place I’ve tended to go to for lunch, historically– I’d get their pad thai (good), sushi (good, yet a bit expensive) or miso soup (delicious).  This was the […]
