Visit to P.F. Chang

My wife and I visited P.F. Chang's for the first time last weekend. I thought since we went during Thunder Over Louisville it would be less crowded since it always seems to be. It seemed logical since about 800,000 people were downtown, this restaurant in the suburbs would have less people. Well, maybe it was less crowded but it was still crowded. We had reservations and it we still waited about 20 minutes.

It was enjoyable experience with a friendly staff and excellent food. My sister insisted we get the lettuce wraps to start the meal even though I usually do not eat appitizers. They turned out to be very good though we needed more lettuce leafs to finish off the dish. It said they contained spicy chicken but the food was not hot tasting. Google showed the lettuce wraps as something that searched for and I did the search and found a number of sites had the recipe listed.

The other two dishes we had were the the sweet and sour chicken and vegetable dumplings. I found both to be good. At the beginning of the meal, the server brought out a plate with different sauces and I tried the mixture of soy sauce, chili sauce and hot mustard. It was good. I found the sweet and sour chicken to have a noticable ginger taste which is not what I usually expect from this dish.

All and all a very nice meal and we will go back some time to try their other dishes.
