Ginger Exchange opened their second location by Symphony Hall at 250 Huntington Ave earlier this past summer. Self-described as a “fresh Asian kitchen”, I thought it was a comfortable and affordable option for dinner. As with so many Asian menu’s it goes on forever so in lieu of my usual description, visit their website for details, gingerexchange.com.
We started with the Crab Rangoon ($5.95) followed by the Original Pad Thai with chicken and shrimp ($10.95). I was sharing dinner with Sergio so I refrained from ordering any of the chef’s specialty rolls, but there were many sushi options on the menu that caught my eye – perhaps next time.
The Crab Rangoon come six to an order and were served warm. The crispy wonton and cream cheese were slightly addicting and a good start to our dinner. The Pad Thai that followed also proved to be very satisfying. If I wasn’t sharing this plate I would have preferred some hot sauce / oil to bring more zip to the plate, but otherwise I thought it was very tasty.
Ginger Exchange has a full bar. They are located across the street from Symphony Hall and just a few doors down from the Huntington Theater Company and NEC’s Jordan Hall, making it a good option either before or after catching a show / performance.
