P.F. Chang’s

27 Nov

Holy moly, where does time go? I just returned from the East coast where I spent the holiday with family in New Jersey and Baltimore. This means there will be some travel posts coming your way to make up for the inactivity over here! The night before Thanksgiving, we headed over to P.F. Chang’s for some Chinese food. This is one of my favorite chains because they offer a Gluten-Free menu, take several steps to ensure there is no cross-contamination and offer really tasty food! I have always found their staff very knowledgeable about the GF menu. You will also find that the GF menu items are served on a plate with their logo on it to ensure that it stays GF from the kitchen all the way to your table. I started with Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps.

These consisted of wok-seared minced chicken, mushrooms, green onions, and water chestnuts served over crispy rice sticks and served with crisp lettuce cups. Additionally, our waiter provided me with my own GF soy sauce to adjust to my own taste preferences (spicy!). For my main dish, I had the GF Beef á la Sichuan.

These flank steak strips were cooked until they were crispy and then were tossed with julienne celery and carrots. I loved this dish as it had a little kick to it. The table also shared a side of the gluten-free garlic snap peas.

At the end of the meal, I was stuffed. Perhaps it is a good thing that there is not a P.F. Chang’s closer to Santa Barbara than Thousand Oaks!
