this restaurant delivers
On Tuesday, May 19, 2009 I had lunch at the Ginger Asian Restaurant at 224 Elizabeth Drive in the Fredericktowne Crossing Shopping Center, several miles east of Stephens City on Route 255, Fairfax Pike. The restaurant is at 224 Elizabeth Drive, next to the Martin’s Food store in this relatively new shopping center.
It is open daily; the hours are Monday-Thursday 11:00 AM-10:00 PM, Friday-Saturday 11:00 AM-10:30 PM, and Sunday 11:30 AM-9:30 PM. It offers Dine In, Carry-Out, and Delivery service for Chinese food and Sushi. The phone numbers are 540-869-0377 and 540-869-0399.
The Ginger Asian is two building modules wide, somewhat like the Mimosa Fusion Asian Restaurant off Senseny Road, albeit not quite as fancy. There were booths along the side walls and tables of different sizes around the room. A sushi bar was in the rear.
The menu listed appetizers, soups, salads, fried rice and noodle dishes, vegetables, combination platters, chicken, pork, beef, and shrimp entrees, and chef specials, along with sushi. When I asked for hot tea it was served in a large mug with no handle; I had to wrap it with my napkin because it was so hot.
I decided to order the lunch version of a combination platter of chicken with cashews. It came with egg drop soup, served in an oval ceramic cup with a ceramic spoon and fried wonton.
The rest of the food was on a china plate, not in a foam box, and included fried rice and an egg roll. The waiter brought a container of sweet and sour sauce, along with a smaller one of spicy mustard.
I liked the food; the serving was quite large, and I took half of it home for another meal. The server gave me a separate box for the rice. Surprisingly, the cost was less than at other Oriental places.
This was true even though it included tea, soup, an egg roll, and fried rice instead of white rice. I made a mental note that I would definitely eat there again, and would probably try out a shrimp dish.
Although several people came in for carry-out orders, only one other table was occupied by diners while I was there. The server told me that lunch business was pretty meager Monday through Thursday. I also learned that Ginger Asian had opened about a year ago.
