Tea and Tiramisu at PF Chang’s China Bistro in Austin

Even though my friends have been raving about the food at PF Chang’s for years, I have been hesitant to go there because of it being a chain restaurant. This week I happened to be downtown for a trade fair with a co-worker and we decided to treat ourselves by enjoying lunch at the location near the Convention Center. Indeed, it was a treat! I thoroughly enjoyed the experience — from the first sip of the warm fragrant tea to the last bite of fluffy tiramisu.


Tea at PF Chang's

The White Tangerine tea was served in a heavy metal pot. Ann ordered the Dragon Eye Oolong tea, which she said a waiter once told her is Revolution brand tea. Both teas were light and fragrant.

Kung Pao Shrimp at PF Chang's

The waitress was helpful and had lots of suggestions for my first visit to PF Chang. I finally decided to try the Kung Pao Shrimp. The shrimp was tender and the sauce was not overly spicy. Dipped in potato starch before being cooked gave the shrimp a thin and crispy coating. Very delicious.

Ann had the spicy Beef a la Sichuan, which consisted of thinly sliced beef mixed with julienned vegetables. The vegetables were fresh and not overcooked.


Mini Desserts at PF Chang's

I was full, but not too full, to try one of the mini desserts. I wish I had written down the eight mini dessert choices. The only ones I can remember are tiramisu, red velvet cake with cream cheese icing and the mini great wall of chocolate. I opted for tiramisu. It was just enough to give me a sweet ending to a wonderful meal.

PF Chang’s is vegetarian friendly with main dishes such as stir-fried eggplant, coconut curry vegetables and Ma Po Tofu.
