This peppery yet citrusy treat may not appeal to everyone’s palate, but for those who don’t mind the complex flavors of this pungent root, our friends over at Seattle Magazine have scoured the city to find four tasty ginger treats running the gamut from dumplings to donuts. Taneeka Hansen of Seattle Magazine writes:

ARABICA LOUNGE
Owner Jojo Corväiá’s original, gluten-free GINGER CAKE WITH BLACK PEPPER LIME GLAZE is something to savor: The warm, aromatic cake is made with 8 ounces of fresh ginger, while the house-blend Dolce Chai, black peppercorn, cardamom and lime in the glaze awaken your taste buds. $5. Capitol Hill, 1550 E Olive Way; 206.347.6093; arabicalounge.com

DIN TAI FUNG
The star at this internationally popular dumpling house for more than 40 years (and in Seattle for two years), each JUICY PORK DUMPLING bursts with a flavorful “soup” of green onions, ginger, pork and rich broth; the dipping sauce of fresh ginger, soy sauce and vinegar adds just the right salty kick. $9.50 for 10 dumplings. Bellevue, 700 Bellevue Way NE; 425.698.1095; dintaifungusa.com
