Blue Ginger

Dan Boston

For my dad’s birthday we went to Blue Ginger, an upscale Asian-fusion restaurant in Wellesley. Really good stuff – my appetizer were Shiitake-Leek Springrolls with Three Chile Dipping Sauce – truly awesome.  The main course I got was Mom’s Famous Three Vinegar Sautéed Organic Shrimp, which came with Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Spicy Asparagus Salad.  I gave the asparagus to my grandma (I’m not a fan), but the big surprise of the dish was the absolutely mind-bogglingly tasty and heavenly balsamic reduction sauce.  Holy crap, I wanted a straw!  Dessert was also excellent – Sesame Macadamia Caramel Nut Tart with Toasted Coconut Ice Cream and Housemade Hot Fudge and Gosling’s Rum Caramel.  Yes, it was as stupendous as it sounds!
