Wedgwood Vegetarian Thai...so so!

Print this post
Went to this new vegetarian Thai place on Broadway the other day called Wedgwood Vegetarian Thai II.  The atmosphere was really nice when you walked in and the waitress was very friendly.  The list of food below that we tried was pretty decent, but nothing to write home about...although the silver noodles I might go back for.  I think they really have to make sure they don't take any shortcuts (like too much cornstarch in the soup or not enough fake meat), as their veggies are really fresh and and this place has real potential considering it's really hard to find vegetarian thai food where they don't put fish sauce in everything.  The star system for spiciness could be improved, as 4 stars was barely spicy.  Luckily they had this cute little tray of hot sauces you could add.  I could also suggest to them that Christmas is over (way WAY over!), so they might want to take down the very dusty xmas balls that were hanging under each table lamp shade, hehe.  That was pretty funny.  Anyway, here's the rundown of what we ate:

Silver Noodles, yum!
Pad-Voon-Sen (Silver Noodles)  $8.95
Bean thread noodles stir-fried with tofu, egg, onions, tomato, celery, cabbage, garlic, carrots, cilantro, homemade sauce.
Quite tasty!  These super thin noodles were really fun to eat and had good salty & sweet flavor!


Hot Pot
Wedgwood Hot pot  $9.95
Soft tofu or (deep fried tofu)  mushrooms, veggie fish, veggie pork, With special sauce, boiled in the hot pot.
My husband ordered 4 stars, and it was barely spicy...so I guess you have to say THAI HOT PLEASE!  Pretty tasty, but would have liked to see the veggie meats in more chunky pieces...everything was minced really finely.

Vegetarian Hot & Sour soup

Hot & Sour soup  $8.95
Fresh tofu, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, water chestnuts, egg, seaweed, dried lily flower.
The vegetables were very fresh, but unfortunately they put too much corn starch to make it more thick: a cardinal sin for me with soup.
