Liquid Ginger is quickly becoming one of the hottest restaurants in the Gainesville area. Already famous for their ice cream treats and fudge, they are coming to the University area with their new stand in Celebration. If you love ice cream and fudge but don’t live in the University area, don’t worry. They also serve hot sandwiches and salads at their other locations. So, take a look at some of their other options if you like what you see at Liquid Ginger.
The Liquid Ginger restaurant has received many positive reviews so far. One thing people say about their hot, fresh, spicy sauces is that they have really hit the spot for me. If you are looking for a good spicy food to spice up your ribs or chicken, this would be a good place to go. It’s located off University Drive, just a short distance from the UF campus. You can find it sitting in the middle of the strip mall across from Bass Pro Shops.
Menu of Liquid Ginger features four different kinds of dipping sauce: Coconut rice, red sauce, beef and goat curry, and Thai chicken rice. The coconut rice and red sauce are both made with ginger, a spicy herb that adds a nice, warm flavor to the rice. The red sauce goes well with both beef and goat curry. Thai chicken rice is delicious served with their mango and Thai red curry.
The beef and goat curry is made with Thai basil, Thai white pepper, garlic, cumin, coriander, Cayenne, and ginger. I wasn’t able to sample all of them, but the basil and white pepper definitely take the lead for spice in the curry. The chicken rice was quite tasty as well, although it did not rival the taste of the beef and goat curry.
If you enjoy Thai food, then you will love this dish. With the tofu placed in between the meat, you have a tasty vegetarian meal that everyone should enjoy. It’s topped with bean sprout, peanuts, and mayonnaise sauce. A lot of people seem to be raving about the tofu, saying that it tastes just like beef. If you are looking for a quick yet flavorful meal, this would be an easy one to whip up.
The other vegetarian dish of the day is Thai coconut curry. This one also includes spinach and miso soup, salad, and a seafood spread. The ingredients are Thai peanut sauce, lime juice, tomatoes, bamboo shoots, and shrimp paste. I’m not really sure what the shrimp paste does, but it really helps to thicken the soup.
The final dish of the night is the spicy red curry. To prepare for this, you’ll need white wine, ginger shrimp, white fish, cornstarch, and chicken broth. Bring all of these to a boil and stir while they are heating up. While they are cooking, cook your beef, adding as much as you can afford to chew. When it’s nearly boiling, add your white wine and stir until the wine is no longer red.
At the end of the meal, you’ll have a very tasty meal that incorporates all of the above ingredients. The spicy red curry is a delicious way to enjoy the flavors of the other ingredients while building up your own protein at the same time. It’s also a great way to incorporate some textures like the texture of the black pepper and the mellow flavor of the miso. The spicy red curry will surely satisfy the spice receptors in your mouth.
For a nice change, you can serve your spicy red curry tofu with brown rice. Brown rice has a lot more flavor than sushi rice, which means that it will help round out the flavor of your meal a bit. Serve your tofu with your brown rice along with some carrots and celery to give your guests a sweet, savory treat. Make sure that you serve your tofu with your other main dishes such as the beef.
Another easy one is the chicken, char-grilled with sweet soy sauce and sesame oil. You’ll need: two pieces of boneless, skinless chicken, three tablespoons of soy sauce, a tablespoon of sesame oil, and four cups of water. Place all of your ingredients into your slow cooker then put in your lid and let it heat up on low. While it’s cooking, you can prepare your beef for preparation. When the beef is almost done, take it out of the cooker and shred it using a shredder. When it’s shredded, mix the beef with the soy sauce, and sesame oil to make your very own chicken char-grilled.
If you have the time and the patience, preparing a traditional Japanese meal is fun and incredibly easy. For starters, you can make a delicious beef stir fry with beef and onions, or you can also create your own list or spinach and tofu soup. For side dishes, you can also create your own sweet soy sauces and sesame seeds and enjoy your meal with the flavors of your choice. In any case, Japanese meals are always a good time.
