Gauguin on the rocks at Wild Ginger Seattle

Malay Mama, a tropical concoction at Wild Ginger

SEATTLE – In honor of the upcoming exhibit, Gauguin and Polynesia: An Elusive Paradise at the Seattle Art Museum taking place February 9 through April 29, Wild Ginger’s Executive Chef Jacky Lo and his team have created a special, limited time menu item with a cocktail to match.

Spice things up with the Indonesian Twice-Cooked Chicken Wings, simmered in ginger, lemongrass, coconut and a sweet soy sauce, and then deep fried and tossed in a hoisin barbeque sauce ($6 for 8 wings). Sweeten the deal with the Malay Mama, a tropical concoction of guava and banana rum mixed with tropical juices and a splash of grenadine, served on the rocks with a toasted coconut and sugar rim and a wedge of grilled pineapple ($6 each).

These specials will be available beginning February 9. For more details on the restaurant, visit www.wildginger.netFollow Wild Ginger on Twitter @WildGingerRes and on Facebook.
