We went to PF Chang’s Friday night. I think PF Chang’s is one of those places that you can always count on. I have been to Hong Kong and had really good Chinese food, there are a few place in Seattle that you can get good Chinese Hong Kong style but that is different depending on where you are from. As most people know there are eight main regional cuisines, or Eight Great Traditions: Anhui, Cantonese, Fujian, Hunan, Jiangsu, Shandong, Sichuan, and Zhejiang. And in Hong Kong it is usual Cantonese style. But living on the East Cost, Chinese food there is very different and still really good. If you ask an East Coaster about Chinese in Seattle they will tell you that there are no good places. I think that Chinese food in Seattle is actually more like Chinese food, more of the none grease fresh things you can get in Hong Kong. But I enjoy both and I think you actually get a little of both in PF Chang’s.
At PF Chang’s we ordered the Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Harvest Spring Rolls and Peking Dumplings for apptetizers. I really like the lettuce wraps and the spring rolls and dumplings were good too. The only problem I had was the sauce that came with the Harvest Spring Rolls, it was too sweet.
Then for entrees we had the Chicken with Black Bean Sauce, Mongolian Beef and Singapore Street Noodles. The Singapore Street Noodles used to be my favorite item on the menu. But this time it wasn’t as good. I would say the Mongolian Beef was my favorite thing this time.
PF Chang’s service is good the problem I have with this place is that it is loud and very large but it does serve my craving for Chinese food.
