We try to have a menu that can accommodate all our customers at Thai Ginger, including vegans, those who suffer from gluten-intolerance, or those who are just trying to eat as cleanly as possible. If you’re watching your weight, you don’t have to skip going out to dinner! We have plenty of nutritious, low-fat menu items that are just as delicious as anything else! Here are a few:
Starter: Chicken Lettuce Wrap
Rather than reaching for a deep-fried spring roll, try our Chicken Lettuce Wrap! The crunchy lettuce exterior provides a similar texture to fried dough but without any the carbs and grease, and the high-protein filling will help you build muscle. And of course, the fresh ground ginger is Asia’s panacea for myriad health ailments!
Soup: Tom Yum
This soup relies on natural flavors like lemongrass, chili paste, lime leaves and cilantro, meaning that it can skip the MSG that’s so common in other Asian soups and requires significantly less sodium to taste good try here. The light broth will whet your appetite without ruining your palate, and doesn’t have the fatty coconut milk base of the Tom Kha soup.
Entree: Garlic Prawns
Seafood is not only rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, but an excellent source of lean protein. Our prawns are lightly sauteed rather than fried, and flavored with fresh garlic, which is high in antioxidants and nutrients like Manganese or Vitamin B6. And nothing beats a bed of steamed broccoli in terms of a healthy meal!
Dessert: Black Sticky Rice Pudding
Though it does, of course, involve sugar, our Black Sticky Rice Pudding is a healthy end-of-meal treat. Black rice is incredibly good for you, indeed much better than white rice. It contains high levels of vitamins and minerals, such as iron, many antioxidants, and is quite high in fiber. This is a dessert you’ll not only love, but you can enjoy guilt-free!
