The restaurant is named after the bright orange-red berry from a shrub in China that has a sweet tart taste. Not only is the goji berry the namesake of this restaurant you will find the slightly sweet tart berry in one of the house specialties, Red Goji chicken --- stir fried chicken with goji berries, mushrooms and scallions in a sweet oyster sauce. The menu boasts a whole Peking duck, dinner for two with the appropriate scallions, hoisin sauce and pancakes.
If I hadn’t been going to Goldberg’s Bagels in Club Center I wouldn’t have even known there was a new Asian restaurant. The shopping center sits recessed off Reisterstown Road in the heart of Pikesville’s commercial district. A number of you might remember it as Olive & Sesame. Open now for a couple months, Red Goji is Asian – offering a selection of Japanese, Chinese and Thai dishes.
For those who love sushi, nigiri and/or sashimi, Red Goji can accommodate you ala carte or choose the lunch or dinner choices.
Pad Thai, lettuce wraps and Tom Yum soup give a nod to the Thai influences that are served up at Red Goji.
