Trend-setting Chinese Fine Dining in a casual setting
P.F. Chang's is one of those trend-setting hot spots that seem to have a presence in every locale that offers the most and best of everything. (See more pictures below.)
Appetizers for vegetarians include delightful vegetable dumplings (filled with shredded vegetables and pan-fried or steamed); and Chang's Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps (wok-seared tofu, red onions, water chestnuts with mint and lime), which are a meal in and of themselves; Shanghai Cucumbers (sliced cold cucumbers sprinkled with soy and sesame), and Spring rolls (veggies in a deep-fried roll).
For Entrees, there's the magnificent Vegetable Chow Fun (soft wide rice noodles and slivered vegetables in spicy vegetarian sauce); Sichuan Style Long Beans or Asparagus (quickly cooked with Sichuan preserved vegetables) Spinach Stir-fried with garlic; Buddha's Feast (veggies steamed or Stir-Fried); Coconut-curry Vegetables (stir-fried mixed vegetables, crispy silken tofu and peanuts in a vegetarian coconut-curry sauce) Stir-fried Spicy Eggplant (tossed with scallions and a fiery sauce); Ma Po Tofu (Sichuan's famous dish of crispy silken tofu, in a spicy vegetarian sauce with steamed broccoli) and Garlic Snap Peas. All meals are served with brown or white rice, and are spiced to order.
This is good food in a place that you can take your non-veg friends to and they'll love you for it.
