So there’s a lot that made us suspicious about stepping into Wild Ginger, mainly the fact that the restaurant bills itself as “Pan-Asian” and vegan.

We were happy to be proved wrong by this $7 dish.

These cold, starchy strands come drizzled with a slightly sweet, nutty sauce — and are a more delectable pick than a similar, nearby noodle dish.

You cant taste the tea, per se, but there is a slight citrusy vibe to these pleasantly chewy — and appropriately portioned — pasta pieces.
