PF Changs

Why start with dessert? It's the only thing I really like at PF Changs. Thank God we have a great International District, so we can get great Chinese, but if you can't PF Changs is the answer!!!

I have to admit, I prefer the authentic Chinese that doesn't ask, "How spicy do you you want your sauce?" I am referring to the mix of soy, sesame oil, sambal, and rice vinegar, which usually sits on the table for your own personal use, but at PF Changs, the servers feel they need to mix it for you. Funny.

The huge plus at PF Changs is that there is a full bar with bartenders who can really mix a tasty drink. Another is the starters/small plates. It's so nice to have a little yummy bite rather than always starting with soup. Hmmm...what else. Portion control! Don't get me wrong, I love the leftovers, but there's just way too much food served at most Chinese restaurants. OK, maybe those aren't valid complaints...just sayin'.

At the end of the day, EVERYONE loves PF Changs. Can't really complain. Great place to meet for a drink and perfect place to eat with your family!
WOW, Organic and with Agave!!! I'd say, "How Healthy", but it's a COCKTAIL!!!
A yummy cocktail!
4 Copas Tequila and Organic Agave Nectar shaken with fresh lime juicemmmm...start with this...
Tender wok-braised ribs served with a five-spice salt
OK, I love Wonton soup, but this was a miss. The chicken was seriously DRY and the broth completely flavorless.

Pork wontons, mushrooms, spinach, water chestnuts, chicken and shrimp in our homemade chicken broth. Made to order. If you want the real stuff, pass on this.
Vegetarians rejoice! PF Changs has a nice selection of veggie entrees that even your meat loving friends will love.

Sichuan’s famous dish of crispy silken tofu in a vegetarian sauce with steamed broccoli...mmm!
Fried Rice, hold the shrimp!
Wok-fried rice blended with egg, soy and sliced scallions. Choice of vegetable, beef, pork, chicken, shrimp or combo.
OK, have a picky kid? My sister just told me that my Godson, Lucas, loves the fried rice at PF Changs. He orders Fried Rice, No Vegetables! Perfect!

If you are looking for the traditional Sweet and Sour Pork, this is close, but better for you. Well, it's chicken anyway, instead of random chunks of fatty pork.

Lightly battered and served in a sweet, flavorful sauce over a bed of crispy rice sticks. So Good!!! Check out this crazy dessert selection. That's right "Cake Shots"!!! You can have every cake without the guilt..."It's not a whole piece!"
