With a single-minded determination to make food more interesting, Jia Wei, owner and head chef at Wild Mango, has created excitement by blending diverse ingredients, artful presentation, and a
world of cooking styles to make Wild Mango a true original on the Cleveland restaurant scene.
BackgroundOpened in 2000 as Weia Teia, as a sister restaurant to Weia Teia in Oberlin, the restaurant became Wild Mango in 2004. Why the name change? Maybe it was time to end the mystery of "What does 'Weia Teia' mean?" Maybe to infuse the restaurant with chef Jia Wei's wild enthusiasm for food. Whatever the reason, the new name brought some exciting changes to the menu, adding more chicken and beef dishes and featuring original recipes drawn from every major Asian culture and born of the chef's talent for improvisation and innovation
