What's good at P.F. Chang's?

Going out with my mom on saturday for my birthday. Decided on P.F. Chang's. Never been there before and was wondering what the best food they have? I love orange chicken, pot stickers, egg rolls and beef fried rice. Not a fan of the spicy foods though. What do you guys recommend?

You like Orange Chicken but not spicy?


What I usually get is very spicy so I won't recommend it. I'd think you'd probably really like the Honey Chicken.

I'm eating leftovers of their double pan fried noodles at this very moment. I only eat there once a year or so, but that's usually what I get.

I recommend not looking at the amounts of sodium they use.

I see what you did there, Thor

Pretty much everything on the menu is scrumptious. They take the exotic flavors of the mysterious Orient and bring them to you!

I'm quite fond of the lettuce wraps.

Re: What's good at P.F. Chang's?

The one time I went I didn't find anything good. That's why it was once. But I live in an area where there are real Chinese restaurants that real Chinese actually eat in so maybe I have different tastes from what Changs serves.

I hate Chang's. It's overpriced, overfatty, overcaloric, overcooked shit.

Their Chinky Chow is off the hook!

They used to have a dessert called the "Lucky 8" or something like that which had rave reviews, but I never got to try it.

Plus it's fucking noisy & always crowded.

I like Chinese restaurants that miraculously stay in business even though there's never any one there except for the server/cashier/buslady doing the books on one of the dining tables while watching Family Fued on the TV in the corner.

This.

It's the equivalent of going to Pizza Hut for Pizza.

He might think that's a good show. Oh, wait, you said sodium.
