Blue Ginger Garden In Plano To Close – Tomorrow Night Is Last Seating

No More -- Roti Canai at Blue Ginger Garden

Blue Ginger Garden, the authentic Malaysian restaurant in Plano, is to close its doors after Sunday night’s dinner service. It was Esther & Hai Say’s first foray into the restaurant business when they started 15 months ago but, in the end, they decided the life was not for them. Esther will go back to her embroidery business (her work adorns the windows of the restaurant) and Hai is likely to rejoin the engineering profession. In its place, and under a new name, will go a vegetarian Indian restaurant. I don’t have the name of the owner but he will serve Indian food and use the kitchen for his catering business.

The closure of Blue Ginger Garden leaves Dallas with one less type of cuisine to brag about. Some Malaysian dishes are available at Secret Recipe and Lion City and, while both are well worth a visit, Malaysian food is not their specialty and they don’t have the range of food, especially Nyonya specialties found at Blue Ginger.
