Let’s just say it: Wild Ginger Café isn’t your grandmother’s Chinese restaurant. As a matter of fact, this Asian and Pacific Rim influenced eatery, which opened in 2002 and is now a must-eat destination for Central Coast foodies, is the only spot of its kind in San Luis Obispo County. Chef and owner Deborah Mok says, “it’s all about the food,” and to this Singapore native, that means shopping at local farmers’ markets for the freshest produce and buying directly from regional seafood purveyors. Beers, wines and sake are carefully chosen to complement the cuisine. All desserts are made in-house, including the exotic and colorful sorbets.

The best Asian restaurant in Cambria hands down. It's a hole-in-the-wall type establishment in the downtown area. Had it not been for the large neon sign popping out, we would have missed it. We ordered the Thai basil chicken, eggplant curry (both come with brown rice) and an Indian Samosa. I can't remember when I have eaten Asian food that delicious. If you like spicy with sweet you will love the thai basil dish, however, if you are into curry flavor you will enjoy the eggplant dish. Food was ready in less than 15 min and after we gouged down every last crumb, we were full! 🥄🍴I also really liked the warm decor inside. Very pleasing! I only wish we had a Wild Ginger in the San Fernando Valley in LA. ☺😍 Saw Wild Ginger's menu board while wondering downtown Cambria and had to come back when they opened for dinner. They're open for take out currently so I ordered the Beef Dumplings and the Green Papaya Salad to go. Immediately upon walking in it smells amazing. Everything was wonderful and they even made the presentation lovely which with take out can be difficult. I was so hungry after not eating all day I didn't remember to take a picture though (Source:foodeist.com)
