P.F. Chang’s China Bistro – LOVE this restaurant!
I enjoy various kinds of foods and P.F. Chang’s is no exception. The gluten-free menu is diverse, delicious and I believe has something for all kinds of tastes. Spicy, sweet and savory, the gluten free menu at P.F. Chang’s is wonderful.
The gluten-free menu is in the regular menu so you don’t have to ask the hostess or waitress for the menu but you DO need to tell them that you will be ordering from that menu. They are very accommodating and will bring out the gluten-free soy sauce for you to create your perfect sauce. (If you haven’t been to P.F. Chang’s before what they do is bring out the soy sauce and then per your liking they add some crushed red pepper flakes or mustard depending if you would like your sauce spicy or sweet or a combination – the hostess always knows a good combination)
What I enjoy about P.F. Chang’s is that they have gluten-free soy sauce. This may seem like a small thing but P.F. Chang’s is one of the few places that serve Asian style cuisine that has gluten-free soy sauce and other sauces for their guests with allergies. I think more restaurants should have this as an option because Asian style cuisine is often taken to another taste level with the addition of soy sauce.
Their signature appetizer are the Chang’s Chicken lettuce wraps. Wok-seared minced chicken, mushrooms, green onions, and water chestnuts served over crispy rice sticks and served with cool, crisp lettuce cups. It is and probably will be the only time I will ever eat mushrooms. A perfect pair to their lettuce wraps is the egg drop soup – a classic and simply soup that goes well with any meal.
I love spicy food and the gluten-free menu at P.F. Chang’s offers various spicy dishes that will please the heat thrill seeker in all of us. The pepper steak is great and so is their spicy chicken. For those not so on the wild side, the Singapore Street Noodles may be more your speed (also a favorite of mine) and you can never go wrong with their fried rice.
Last but certainly not least is dessert. You may be thinking – oh well it’s probably ice cream or sorbet or something. Wrong. It is a flourless chocolate dome and it is one of my favorite gluten-free desserts. It is rich and creamy and served with fresh berries and raspberry sauce. If you are a chocolate lover like myself, this is a must try and trust me, it’s going to be hard to share.
I always have a great meal at P.F. Chang’s. If you enjoy Asian style dining or want to try something new – gluten-free or not – I highly recommend P.F. Chang’s
