WUJI Restaurant introduces organic Chinese food to Fairfield County with its first Connecticut location opening in Greenwich by month’s end. Already a success in neighboring Westchester County, this innovative restaurant concept bears an eco-pledge to customers vowing to serve local, organic, chemical-free and cooked-to-order Chinese food daily.
WUJI, meaning the singularity of the universe, offers Chinese food enthusiasts a more vibrant and fresh approach to this often misrepresented cuisine, and is in keeping with today’s sustainable food culture.
WUJI’s authentic recipes utilize traditional and modern preparations, and incorporate only organic chicken, pasture raised pork, grass fed beef, wild caught fish, cage-free chicken eggs, Chinatown noodles, and organic vegetables. The food is as pure and natural as it can get, ensuring no MSG hangover. A strong emphasis on gluten-free includes vegetable and high-protein dishes and eliminates the use of starch based fillers and thickeners found in traditional Chinese restaurants.
Menus are printed with vegetable ink on disposable paper that will be recycled after each guests’ use. Favorites include; organic Heritage pork spare ribs with honey-plum glaze; lo mein noodles stir-fried with vegetables and sesame ginger sauce; Cantonese roast chicken with crispy garlic and shallots; and spicy fried rice topped with a soft egg. The beverage program includes Asian beer selections, sakes, a well-crafted wine list and a creative selection of re-batched “tiki” cocktails prepared with top shelf spirits and fresh squeezed juices. Organic house made soda, herbal infusion ice tea service, and Kusmi hot tea round out the beverage offerings.
